It is becoming more and more important as time goes by to maximise energy efficiency in the home, particularly with the price of energy constantly on the rise. A typical electric hot water system can account for about 25% of your electricity bill, and so there is an opportunity to save considerably by being smart about the way that you use your hot water. Here are some handy tips from the leaders in hot water in Sydney here at Local Sydney Plumbing:
- Gain a rough estimate of the amount of hot water that you use, and intuitively look at ways of reducing your usage. For example, take shorter showers, use the dishwasher less etc.
- Install water efficient showerheads and airated taps to reduce energy and water consumption.
- If you notice a leak, do something about it! Leaks cost you more the longer they are left unattended to, so don’t procrastinate
- Carry out regular maintenance and service on your hot water system in accordance with the instructions provided by the manufacturer.
