Tips & Advice

How you can start saving big on your energy bill today

It’s no secret that energy prices are on the rise. In particular, gas prices are through the roof. Fortunately, it’s simple to make your home more cost effective by switching out your old, bill-lengthening appliances for energy efficient products.

Upgrade to a more efficient water heater

Statistics show that heating water accounts for around 15 per cent of an Australian home’s total energy use. That’s a huge portion of your monthly bill, and if your water heater isn’t a high efficiency model then you might be paying even more than you have to.

There are a number of high efficiency hot water heater options that will slash your utility bills greatly.

Switch to solar

One of the best and easiest ways to save money is by converting to solar power. Living in Australia, there’s no shortage of inexhaustible, free sunlight!

Solar energy can be used to power all your electrical needs, including hot water.

Best of all, while it will add some extra cash in your pocket, using solar power will drastically lower your carbon footprint and help the environment. Win-win!

If you’re thinking of going solar, call us today and we can arrange to safely install panels at your home.

Get a storage water heater

Storage water heaters ensure that water is kept hot and available at all times.

There are two options with water heaters; one is a traditional insulated storage tank which is capable of storing between 25 and 400 litres of water, and a tank-less water coil that is heated on demand using electricity.

While you’ll encounter stand-by losses with a tank due to it always having to use energy to keep the water hot, these are eliminated with the coil option.

Regardless, both are still efficient ways of producing your hot water.

Take your taps and toilet to the next level

Taps and toilets can waste a lot of water, energy and money if they aren’t functioning at their maximum potential.

Installing low-flow taps or tap aerators can help reduce your tap water use from a whopping 15 to 18 litres per minute down to a streamlined 2 litres per minute.

Likewise, by replacing a traditional single flush toilet with a water-efficient dual flush toilet you’ll find yourself saving about 51 litres per person per day, with yearly savings of around 30,000 to 40,000 litres. Not bad!

To increase your energy efficiency, call us today to discuss your options and have us securely install products for you.

From the first phone call Curran plumbing services were professional, showed up on time for scheduled quote , then me updated when the job was going to be completed . On the day of install all of the staff were well trained , well spoken and installed my new instantaneous gas hot water system like they were installing it in their own home .
