8 Tips to Keep Your Energy Bill Lower During Winter

As the winter months approach and the days get shorter, it’s a good idea to start thinking about your home’s energy efficiency. During winter, with the majority of us spending more time at home, energy use can spike. As a result, our power bills can skyrocket. Therefore, it’s important to consider your energy consumption and the potential for reducing your power costs. Even small changes can lead to helpful savings, so here are a few tips on how to keep your energy bill lower during winter….

How to Reduce Your Power Usage – and Your Bill – at Night

Solar energy is a great way to save money and slash your power bill. However, most residential solar systems without solar battery storage only power your home during daylight hours. Fortunately, there are ways to reduce your energy usage at night and save even more.

 
Explaining on-grid solar systems
Most solar installed in Australia is “on-grid” solar. When you have an on-grid solar power system, you are still connected to the main electricity grid. Solar energy produced from your panels needs to be used immediately, as your inverter converts it to standard electricity. If you produce more than you use, …

The mySolarEdge App Revolutionising the Future of Home Solar

If you’ve ever tried to analyse your power bill, it isn’t easy to determine how your usage affects the overall cost. Most homeowners can identify the difference between hot water usage and general electricity, but the bills don’t break down much further.

Solar energy can be similarly confusing unless you have a quality monitoring app at your disposal – mySolarEdge is changing the way we use solar.
What is mySolarEdge?

Does Daylight Saving Help Us Reduce Energy Consumption?

Daylight saving has a long and highly debated history, with Australians divided depending on their graphical location when arguing the pros and cons. For some of us, the extended daylight hours are a blessing, enabling longer leisure and outdoor time. However, for others, daylight saving can be an inconvenience that hinders routine and interrupts circadian rhythms.

But no matter your personal viewpoint on the issue, ultimately, the intention of daylight saving is to do just that: save daylight and, in turn, reduce energy consumption. The jury is still out on the usefulness of the concept, however, some studies have shown that …

Power Bills Doubling

Over the past several months, COVID-19 has turned the world upside down and some impacts of coronavirus are still coming to light. One of the latest developments are families are seeing their power bills double.

With unprecedented numbers of Australians working from home, cooking more meals, and not going on holidays, household energy usage across the country has more than doubled. In fact, since stay-at-home restrictions began in March, energy bills have shot up by 105% on average.

According to Domain, “in March 2019, the average household used 513kWh of power across the month, or 16.5kWh per day, which shot up …

The Whirlybird

In the hottest continent in the world, we are obliged to battle the heat for much of the season. The excessive summer temperatures don’t make for a particularly hospitable work environment, but at the very least, we should be able to count on a reasonable degree of relaxing coolness in our homes.

Circulation is absolutely vital for our houses. Heated air can be trapped in ceiling spaces, warmed by the roof shingles, leading to a crawlspace feeling more like a Turkish bath. This heat radiates through the ceiling and walls, and can make the house a sweatbox. This is felt especially …

Why Natural Light Is So Important To Our Health, Wellbeing and Pocket!

 

Adding free sunlight into your home and workspace has been proven to have both psychologically and physiologically benefits. Pure sunlight, rather than electric lighting, provides the full visible spectrum of light, which helps reduce eyestrain and makes colours in our belongings, decor and clothing look their true colour. This can be particularly important in retail environments where you are trying to make your goods look as attractive as possible, and at home where you want your carefully selected furniture and decor to look exactly as it did in the store or magazines.
