If you’re melting quicker than Olaf the snowman because you’re worried about your electricity usage, don’t worry, Armitage Electrical is here to help with our power saving tips for Summer.
We know everyone worries about the cost of using fans and air conditioning, but there are more ways you can reduce usage at this time of year.
How You Can Reduce Usage Over Summer
Anything that heats or cools uses the most power in your home. Items such as hot water systems, pool pumps, air- conditioning, dryers and washing machines can all run your bill high with excessive use.
Electric hot water systems and pool pumps especially should be set up on the off-peak tariffs. The two best options to use are tariff 33 (guaranteed 18 hours out of any 24-hour period varying on suburb at slightly cheaper rate) or tariff 31 (power between 10pm and 7am only and slightly cheaper again).
Alternatively, a timer should be in place to control how often these items are running. In winter months pool pump running times can be reduced from the usual 8 hours plus to around 4 hours run time.
