We’re all looking for ways to save on our bills. Some of us trawl the internet looking for the best price for electricity or fuel. However, at Always Prompt Repairs, we find that energy audit on your Brisbane home or business can identify areas that might be burning up your hard-earned dollars. Our energy audits look at how your home uses energy, determines if it is efficient and ultimately lets you know what you can do to save money.
What you can do now
While we provide a detailed energy audit of your home or business, there are some tasks that you can do yourself.
Take stock of your appliances: Assess their age – the older they are, the less likely they are to be energy efficient. Think about replacing them and opt for appliances with a high energy rating.
Lighting: What kind of light bulbs are you using? Opt for LED lightbulbs – they last 10 years or more. As well as that, it takes a lot less energy to light your room.
Unplug: Do you leave your TV on standby when not in use? Even when you don’t use it, when it’s on standby it stills zaps energy. This contributes to your electricity bill.
Insulation: Noticed any gaps or draughts in your home? Insulate and fill the gaps – your house is bleeding money! Your air conditioning unit needs to work harder to compensate.
These are first steps to making your home or business more energy efficient. Call us today for a detailed breakdown of ways to improve your energy use.
