It’s one thing to be looking for ways to stay cool this summer, but it’s another thing to budget for the cost. A 2016/17 study by the consumer site www.finder.com.au revealed that heating and cooling accounts for up to 38% of energy usage. So, there are a few strategies you can use to help keep those power bills under control, and MRE Electrical Group Director and principal electrician Brian Parslow outlines some of them:
- When using air-conditioning, the regulation of temperature will help save you money! On hot days, start your air-conditioning system early in the morning, and set it to a comfortable 24°C. This allows the system to cool the house and keep it at a steady temperature throughout the day, without having to use excessive power during the hottest periods.
- The use of inverter air conditioning systems as opposed to non-inverter air conditioning will save money on energy costs. What’s Inverter technology you ask? Inverter technology is used to control the speed of the compressor motor, so the unit continuously regulates the temperature, be it hot or cool. Inverter technology eliminates big temperature fluctuations, and keeps the room or house more comfortable. The flow on from that can be significant power savings.
- Solar Power – We’ve often talked about solar in our blogs and its benefit for saving on energy costs. Installing solar power systems with modern battery storage will reduce household power costs, and minimise the power drawn from the grid. However, you need to look at the energy saving costs against the investment in the solar power system.
