Ever received an energy bill and wondered why it was so expensive? If you aren’t the person who leaves the lights on all day or runs your air-conditioner overnight, then you are probably wondering.

With some appliances consuming more electricity than others, it’s a great idea to be aware of what is consuming all of the energy in your home.

Heating and cooling appliances normally take a big share of the pie, with hot water heaters coming in a close second. Whether it’s that energy inefficient air conditioner or fan, or the heating elements in geysers, these appliances can consume a lion’s share of energy.

Refrigerators and freezers are other culprits consuming large amounts of energy in your home – this is mainly due to them being on all day, but energy use can really spike if the door is opened regularly letting the cool air out.

So how can you make a difference in your usage? Many of the new appliances come with energy ratings, indicating their efficiency as well as how many kWh the appliance consumes. While more energy efficient appliances will cost you more at the time of purchase, they will save you more on your energy bill in the long run.

But there are some other great ways to save energy,

  • Make sure there is plenty of space around your fridge and ensure that the seal is tight.
  • Cover pots and pans while cooking, it helps seal in the heat generated and will reduce cooking time.
  • Use a clothesline instead of a dryer.
  • Replace old bulbs with LED lights and remember to switch off lights when not needed or when you leave a room.
