Summer is here – time to save more energy
With 6 weeks of spring to go until summer of 2015 , we are all thinking about the beach , holidays and the festive season. The one thing we should all be thinking about is saving even more electricity and water in Summer.
With electricity prices increasing next year by almost 13% , we as consumers really , really need to find ways to reduce our electricity consumption – and we need to do it now.
I am happy to report that we at Saving Energy have helped more than 300 people around South Africa reduce their electricity since February by installing geyser timers and blankets and the results and feedback has been awesome.
There are still far too many households just chewing up power like “they just don’t care” -this has to change.
While some may feel that they can simply afford to use electricity as they wish because they are paying for it, remember that that electricity uses coal in it’s creation and that coal creates pollution and Co2 in the process which contribute to global warming.
Once again ,it’s not about how your save , it just that you save as every bit makes a difference.
While we see many people in Autumn and Winter look for ways to cut electricity , many feel that this is not as urgent in summer – well , let’s talk about that for a minute.
Using even less , saves even more.
In summer , because the air is warmer,your geyser doesn’t lose quite as much heat to the surrounding air and so , when you geyser does switch on , it uses less electricity to reheat the water.
This is why many homes see a drop in electricity costs in summer.
Now, make that saving even greater by installing a geyser blanket and timer to save even more!
Then , you can use that saving to have more free cash for the festive season.
A client of ours saved 30% on her electricity bill in Winter – that could could go up by more than 10% in summer!
If you were saving 40% on your electricity costs over the next 6 months, how much would that be in your pocket?
Quite a bit I bet!
Saving Energy is offering this product package in Johannesburg , Pretoria , Cape Town and Durban.
Summer showers – enjoy and save water
As we tend to bath less and shower more during our beautiful summers here in South Africa, give some consideration to our most precious finite resource – water.
During the water crisis in Gauteng , many people caught the proverbial “Skrik” as water ran low and even dried up in many parts of the province.
Saving Water will become the new priority for nations if they want to avoid civil catastrophe in the future.
If you have never thought about how much water a shower can use , then read about it here – you will be amazed !
After reading that article , perhaps the idea that showers are more efficient than baths may not have as much relevance…
The good news is that you can cut the amount of water you use in a shower in half and you can do it right now.

Enjoy your summer!
As we move into a new year, I am asking everyone who reads this and is a regular visitor to our site to please make every effort you can to reduce your electricity usage and to save water wherever you can.
I know not everyone can spend tens of thousands on Solar Systems , Heat Pumps and expensive air con units , but what we can do is make changes to the little things first..
At Saving Energy , we have driven hard deals with our suppliers to be able to offer a geyser timer and geyser blanket package for just R1490-00; while many other companies charge more than that for just a timer!
Plus we have partnered up with Oxygenics to provide you with water and electricity saving shower heads to help you save our precious resources and to save money.
In my opinion, I would rather invest money in saving energy and water than pay it to ESKOM.
With solutions like these that are very affordable , there are no excuses to not make a concerted effort to reduce water usage and save electricity.
Do it today.
