Beat the ESKOM Price increase with a Killer Saving Energy solution for Winter.

In line with the NERSA recommended and approved increases, ESKOM has increased their tariff by 8% from 31 March 2014.

This means that your electricity costs will increase accordingly and it is now time to invest in strategies that will reduce your monthly energy costs.

Your geyser accounts for about 60% of your monthly energy use and this is where to start.

Control your geyser operation times with a geyser timer PLUS prevent uneccessary heat loss with a geyser blanket.

Normally , the cost for a timer and a blanket installed would be R2900 , but now , you can save over R900 with our amazing offer! We have secured stock until the end of April at this price , so book now - even if we do the job in May , you will still get this special price.

This package offer includes all the bits n' pieces and the timer housings if we need to install them.

So, book your Winter Super Special now and keep your money where it belongs.

Offer valid for all confirmed bookings until 30th April 2014.
