COME IN AND TALK TURKEY!
Keep warm for less
ow to keep your home dry: Try not to dry clothes indoors as this
creates moisture in the air. Drying on the outside is free and the
sunlight kills bacteria, making your clothes healthier for you and
your family. Use a shed or garage if it is raining.
To reduce moisture caused by steam, always open a window when you
are showering and when you are cooking on the stove top. Use pot lids to
reduce the amount of steam escaping. Keep doors to bedrooms closed at
these times as steam can make beds damp.
If you must use a clothes drier, make sure your clothes are properly spun
first and leave windows open while you are using it - or even better, vent it
Ten easy ways to save money and cut your electricity costs:
• Talk to your electricity company about which plan is best for you. Most
companies provide options including direct debits at a flat rate all year
round, pre-payment meters and low use rates for people who are very frugal.
• Most of your electricity bill will go on hot water so use less if you can. Set
your washing machine on a cold wash and rinse your dishes in cold water.
Ta ke short showers instead of baths. Showers use 60% less water than baths.
• Fix dripping taps - A dripping hot tap can cost $80 a year but a washer to
fix it costs less than $1.
• If your hot water cylinder is old, keep the heat in by using a hot water
cylinder wrap. These are available from hardware stores. Make sure the
thermostat is set to produce a temperature of 55degC at the tap.
• Always turn the lights off in rooms when you leave them. But if you
are using energy efficient light bulbs it is better to leave them on if you are
returning within ten minutes.
• Appliances that have a standby function, such as televisions, stereos,
mobile chargers, computers or microwaves, should be turned off at the wall.
This can save you up to $75 a year.
• Clothes driers can be very expensive to run so try not to use them unless
you really have to. Heated towel rails are also expensive and cost around
$120 a year to run.
• Make sure there is generous air space behind the back of your fridge
and try to locate it out of direct sunlight, or in a cooler room like the laundry.
Don’t open the fridge door too often or leave it open.
• Make sure you cool food before putting it in the fridge. Turn off your
second or ‘drinks’ fridge - this could be costing you $190 per year.
• When cooking keep the oven door closed. Always keep lids on pots
and use as little water as possible to cook foods. Simmer rather than boil
food and if possible use a microwave, as this uses 30-40% less power than
a conventional oven. Defrost food naturally if possible, rather than in the
