With Winter busy rolling in, we can all expect our electricity bill to sky rocket in the next few months, especially with Eskom’s tariff hike this year. That’s why we at Just Property have come up with a few tips to help you reduce your energy usage and save you some bucks.
To begin with, we need to understand what’s using the most energy in our homes. Usually we would put the big blame on our water geysers. How many times have we been told by our moms to get out of the shower? Well when we moved out and got our first electricity bill, it suddenly became clear why they hated long showers.
However, now that Winter is here, heaters are the next big power muncher knocking on the front door. Think about your evening routing when you arrive home from work. I would guess that one of the first five things you do is to put on a heater to warm up the cold room, and that heater is usually the big one in the living room. Taking that into consideration, I can guess your Winter electricity bill will not look too great at the end of the month.
