How To Conserve Energy At Home

How To Conserve Energy At Home

Paying your energy bill is a routine task – but do you know how much you are consuming and how much you could be saving every month?

Leaving the light on.

Blasting the air conditioning.

Running the dryer constantly.


Ok, sorry, that was a terrible pun.
Our point is – these things don’t sound so bad on their own, but accumulated they all add up on your energy bill, the environment and your wallet!

Here at Austec, we believe each and every Aussie needs to ensure they’re doing the best they can to be more environmentally conscious. So without further ado… here are our top four ways to conserve energy around the house.

Saving with appliances
Energy-efficient home appliances are a great way for any home to reduce energy consumption and save money at the same time. In fact, energy-efficient appliances can save you up to 30% on your electricity bill. When you use energy-efficient home appliances, the minimum amount of energy is used to complete the task.

Saving with light bulbs
Replacing your ordinary light bulbs with LED or other energy-efficient light bulbs can also save you up to 30% on energy bills.

Saving with daily habits
Leaving on the light when you’re not in the room or boiling a full kettle for one mug can quickly add up. Being more energy conscious will slowly add up and save a big chunk on your energy bill.

Saving with kids
Having an energy-saving chat with your children is a great way to save cash and wattage. Often kids are the biggest culprits for leaving lights, televisions and other electronics on! Asking them to help conserve energy to protect the earth will be an exciting challenge for them, too.

Clearly, there are so many benefits to reducing your home energy consumption. Having a few extra bucks in the pocket is something nobody will say no to, and Australian residential customers are paying the highest electricity prices in the world. Become more energy aware and reduce your energy bill by up to 30% – your wallet and planet will thank you later!
