Energy Saving Tips
Ensure your home is as energy efficient as possible. Here are some great products to include in your planning.
ENERGY MONITORING SYSTEM
It pays to be aware! See how much gas, water and electricity your home is consuming and even how much power your solar panels are generating. By setting tariff values you can keep track of how much your next bill is likely to be too.
Here are some examples of what you can display:
- Instantaneous consumption
- Daily and monthly consumption
- Total consumption for the last 12 months
Set and forget! Use time delay switches to automatically turn off towel rail timers and exhaust fans after optimum periods of time. If you have garden lighting and irrigation systems, save yourself the hassle — let digital time switches turn them on and off. They can manage up to 8 weekly programs.
Sensors switch lighting on and off according to the presence of people — minimising the energy wastage caused by people forgetting to turn lights off. Use them in areas such as walk-in-robes, hallways, and children’s bedrooms and bathrooms. Your electrician will help you choose the best areas and the right sensor for each location.
Dimmer switches, or a MyHOME lighting control system, give you greater control of your lighting. Turn lights up for reading, working and cooking, or set the mood and reduce energy wastage when relaxing and entertaining by dimming lights.
