Did you know that electric element type hot water systems can be responsible for around 2 tonnes of greenhouse gases a year?! To become more energy efficient:

 

  • Install a solar hot water system

  • Install AAA rated shower heads to lower the amount of water you use, and the hot water that needs heating.

  • Lower the thermostat on your hot water system to around 50 degrees to optimise efficiency.

  • Spend less time in the shower.

  • Use cold water to wash your clothes.

  • Insulate the hot water pipes throughout your home.
