Life sure is expensive these days. It seems the salaries haven’t increased as much as the bills. Thankfully there are a lot of simple things Queensland homeowners can do to save on their power bills.

Ten energy-saving tips for the home

  1. Look at your electricity bill to gain a better understanding of your family’s energy needs and consumption. This knowledge will empower you to choose the most suitable electricity plan and provider for your household.
  2. When on the hunt for a new appliance, prioritise energy efficiency. Compare the energy and water ratings of different options to identify the most cost effective and environmentally friendly choices. You’ll save a lot more money in the long run by choosing wisely the first time.
  3. Save on electricity by turning off lights and unplugging electrical appliances when not in use. This simple habit can lead to significant savings over time, and yet it’s probably the one that most people still don’t do as much as they should.
  4. Embrace solar power to tap into the sun’s natural energy. Switching to solar panels not only saves money but also contributes to a greener, more sustainable environment.
  5. Trim your lighting costs by making the switch to energy-efficient options like LED or compact fluorescent lamps. Not only will this cut your bills, but these alternatives also have a lifespan of 5 to 10 times longer than traditional bulbs.
  6. Keep a close eye on your fridge, a major energy consumer in your home. Minimise the time the door is open, ensure a tight door seal, and implement practices to prevent cold air from escaping.
  7. Consider natural drying methods by hanging clothes outside or inside if space allows. Clothes dryers consume a significant amount of energy, and embracing natural drying can lead to substantial cost savings.
  8. Plan ahead by placing frozen food in the fridge in the morning to allow for natural thawing. This approach reduces cooking time in the evening, contributing to energy savings.
  9. Cook in batches to create leftovers, saving time and energy on subsequent meals.
  10. Maximise the efficiency of your dishwasher by using the economy cycle and only running it when fully loaded to avoid unnecessary energy consumption.

As you can see, there are a lot of ways you can reduce your electricity bills, most of which are quite simple. The more you do them, the more of a habit they will become, and you’ll quickly start seeing the results.

We received quotes from 3 different solar companies, and Tropical Solar was an easy choice. Not only were they very competitively priced, but Hunter was super informative and not pushy at all. Highly recommend 👌
