Here are some great tips on how to easily improve the energy efficiency of your home!
- Hot Water Tank:
o Lag it
o Use your boiler to heat your water rather than the immersion
o If using immersion then always put it on a timer
o Replace tungsten bulbs with Low Energy units (fluorescent or LED)
o More expensive but longer life
o Increase your attic insulation to least 300mm
o Seal all windows, doors and attic hatches
o Don’t overheat your house – set Living Room thermostat to max 21 o C and remainder of house to 18 o C and on timed control.
