New and Exciting Prospects for the year ahead.
Happy New Year everyone! Well, I am not so sure that it will be happy , considering the current state of our electricity supply in South Africa.
Having said that , there are some exciting developments happening in 2015 – in fact one that has already happened!
The Saving Energy Store.
The easiest way to find prices and book your geyser timer installations.
Over the past 18 months or so , anyone looking to find out about a price for geyser timer and geyser blankets had to do it the ‘old fashioned way ‘ by filling in a form and then waiting for me to respond with a price.
While I was pretty fast with our responses ( faster on the draw than an Old West Gunslinger) it did delay matters a little and so I have created a new way for you to get pricing and book your installations WITHOUT having to fill out an enquiry form.
Welcome to the Saving Energy Store.
Many of you will be looking for ways to cut your electricity usage in 2015 and as you should know by now, your geyser is a good place to start. By installing a timer and blanket, you can save up to 30% on your monthly electricity costs and for an investment of just R1690-00 ( for Johannesburg , Pretoria and Centurion) or R1490-00 ( for Cape Town and Durban) , you can start saving right now.
Booking your installation is super simple – just visit the store at http://store.savingenergy.co.za , select which product you want ( either the timer only or the timer and blanket), and complete the order process.
Payment is only done once the job is completed when you will receive your invoice by email and you can make payment by EFT.
No Paperwork – just click and book!
Once your booking is complete, the specialist installer will call you to arrange the time and date for the installation.
On that date , the team will arrive, install your timer / blanket and leave! No Paperwork for you at all and the whole process is easy and painless.
Other Cool Stuff on the way
So, besides the store, there are more great deals and offers coming your way in the first quarter of 2015.
A retrofit Solar System for existing geysers
Look out for a feature on evacuated tubes for a solar water heating system and a great deal from Solar Centric for a few lucky Saving Energy customers! Solar is the way to go , especially if you already have a geyser, the retrofit system is an excellent way to utilise the power of the sun to reduce your hot water costs – I have one installed myself.
A Plug n’ Play Geyser timer!
Yep! Everything else is Plug N Play , so our friends at Hellerman Tyton will be bringing out a Plug N Play Geyser timer later this quarter. If you don’t want to worry about setting it , then this is the solution. It will automatically switch off during ESKOM’s peak times every day, but still give you hot water when you need it- add a geyser blanket to that and you can relax about your hot water costs!
Energy Efficient Windows
Teva Windows has just been launched in SA and we are going to be running a series of features about what to look for ( AND WHAT NOT TO LOOK FOR) in energy efficient windows. Apart from being one of the most energy efficient designs and superb quality , Teva also offers elements of safety and cost effectiveness that is far beyond anything we have seen so far!
So, that’s it for now!
Keep visiting as the New Year is going to kick of with a big (but energy efficient) BANG!
Have a great year!
