Advantages of installing Energy Saving and Standby Systems.
1: Installing Energy Saving Systems are an investment, electricity costs will continue to rise well above inflation for the foreseeable future, energy saving systems quickly pay for themselves and provide you with many hassle free years of savings.
2: Avoid the inconvenience, or lost revenue due to load shedding, a standby power system not only keeps your business running during load shedding, but it also keeps your security systems operational.
3: Prospective property buyers are seeing these systems as an essential requirement when looking to buy, Energy Efficiency and Standby Power not only add value to your property, but also make your home more desirable than a home that does not have these systems. Other countries already have systems in place whereby homes are inspected and issued an Energy Efficiency Rating when selling.
Tips to cut Electricity Consumption.
Lifestyle changes, simply reduce our consumption by changing our lifestyles, it’s free, but limited to the extent we are willing to change or sacrifice.
Reduce water heating costs, water heating costs can account for up to 50% of the average homes overall electrical consumption, install a solar heating system, heat pump or, both (Hybrid System).
Shower instead of bathing and install a good quality energy efficient showerhead.
Install alternative systems for cooking, gas not only reduces electrical consumption, but it has the bonus of working when the power is off.
Run your pool pump for the minimum time period required to keep it clean, install a timer if you don’t already have one.
Reduce lighting costs by replacing your old incandescent and halogen bulbs with more energy efficient LED fittings. Don’t use lighting when not required. Automate security lighting with Day/Night Sensors and use Motion Detectors in areas of low usage.
Reduce heating and cooling costs by improving insulation, install retractable shading systems over windows that can block the sun in summer, but allow natural heating in winter or plant deciduous trees that naturally provide shade in summer, but lose their leaves in winter allowing the warming sunlight through.
Many modern appliances are manufactured with an energy rating, invest in energy efficient appliances. Check the power ratings, consumption, on your existing appliances.
Switch appliances off when not in use as opposed to leaving them on standby.
Switching your geyser off, or putting it on a timer, is only an effective power saving method if you can leave your geyser off for long enough periods where the energy required to reheat the water is less than the energy that would have been required to maintain your water temperature. This depends on your lifestyle requirements and the heat retaining efficiency of your geyser. Switching your geyser off a few hours a day will not make much difference.
