Keep cool and carry on saving energy
As temperatures soar, make sure your energy bills don’t.
It’s easy to crank up the air conditioning over the summer but it can prove expensive trying to stay cool.
Here are some ways you can manage your energy use at home.
24 hours @ 24 degrees means summer-long savings:
- Set the temperature between 23 °C to 25°C
- Set your air conditioning at Auto speed/mode to run as and when required
Remember: If you’re away for a few days, set the AC unit on 26°C and leave it run on Auto speed/mode, helping minimise humidity in your home.
Let there be the right light:
Be smart with your lighting usage during the day. If you’re still using incandescent bulbs, replace them with LED or CFL versions. It will reduce energy consumption and generate less heat.
Block out the rays:
Close your curtains when and where possible and repair any broken seals on doors and windows to stop air escaping.
Air conditioning units work harder over the summer months so it’s important we look after them to help maintain their efficiency and keep costs low.
