Increase your energy efficiency to reduce your bills

Homeowners know just how expensive electricity bills can be, which is exactly why everyone likes to find new ways to make more savings.

According to there are a few ways that you can lower your electricity prices without too much effort.

Below are some of the tips which the site suggests.

1. Organise your electrical appliances so that you can maximise their energy efficiency.

Did you know that the energy used by most household appliances accounts for about one third of your energy bill.

With a growing dependence on electrical devices it is likely that this number could grow.

2. Get into the habit of switching appliances off at the wall when you are not using them.

Standby power can add up to more than 10 per cent of your household power bill.

By simply remembering to turn off appliances can produce almost instant savings.

Devices such as phone chargers are still using power while they are switched on at the wall, even if your phone is not plugged into it.

3. Opting to wash your clothes in cold water rather than hot water can lead to savings. This could reduce your household costs by approximately $115.
