How to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient
Did you know that making the switch to LEDs, or movement sensors, could save you up to 80% of the energy used per bulb, compared to a standard lightbulb? Simple tricks like this are key to optimising your energy usage when at home.
Another tip to consider is to invest in a high-capacity solar battery which is an ideal backup electricity supply solution. It allows you to go ‘off grid’ if needed, which is advantageous in a power cut.
When purchasing appliances, one of the best things to look out for is the ‘Energy Star’, this is a mark that indicates products which fall within the top 25% of the most energy efficient products on average.
