Many of us know that our home may not be as energy efficient as it should be. We have provided a list of ways you could make your home more energy efficient.
Up to 54% of heat can be lost through an uninsulated ceiling and underfloor. Insulating your home is one of the most important ways to make your home more energy efficient as it will help retain heat, therefore leading to lower power bills.
Thanks to the Government’s Warmer Kiwi Homes grant you may even be eligible for 90% off the price of insulation. We even have 6 months interest free payment options.
Switch to energy efficient light bulbs
Changing to LED lights will save you money through lasting longer, reducing heat loss and lower energy consumption.
Turned off your heated towel rail
Turning off your heated towel rail when you don’t need it will help cut down on those power bills.
Turn off appliances at the wall
Appliances still use a small amount of power when not in use, to reduce the amount of standby power they use, turn all devices off at the wall.
Invest in a heat pump and use it efficiently
Heat pumps are one of the most energy efficient forms of heating in New Zealand. Invest in a heat pump will help to lower those nasty power bills. However, make sure you do use it efficiently so you can maximize your energy savings.
Heat Pumps are the most popular form of fixed heating and cooling available in New Zealand. It is no wonder why when they offer features that other forms of heating cannot, like dehumidifying, air filtration, safety, and ease of use.
Keep track of your power usage
Keeping track of your power usage with your provider is a great way to keep on top of your power bill. A lot of providers have an app that you can do this on.
