Stop battling with heatwaves it’s time to conquer summer with our energy saving tips to keep you cool and comfortable.
1. Become a fan of the fan
The breeze from ceiling fans can go a long way to making everyone in your home feel cooler, even though the temperature of the room may not change much. Try spraying a water mist bottle on to your face and body for an instant cooling satisfaction/effect/feeling. Plus ceiling fans only cost a few cents a day to run.
2. Listen to the weather!
Turn on the air conditioner early - if you expect a hot day, don’t wait until your home is already sweltering. Your air conditioner will have to work extra hard and it will take much longer to to cool your home if it’s already super hot - and it costs more.
Time your comfort! Set your air conditioner at the highest temperature setting at which you still feel cool enough to turn on before you get home.
3. If you can’t handle the heat get out of the kitchen!
Turn those hot days into lazy days - the washing machine and dishwasher can wait. Don’t turn them on until you’re ready for bed. Big appliances especially in the kitchen can be like big heaters and can make your house warmer.
Avoid the oven and grill, take-out anyone?
4. Avoid satin sheets
Satin sheets may be romantic but they’ll definitely make you sweat on a hot night! Try cotton sheets and light coloured bed linen instead. Cotton is breathable so you’ll get a better sleep.
5. Maximise your comfort with a Reposit smart solar and battery system
Finally use energy the way you want while still lowering your power bill. Blast the air conditioner guilt-free without the added cost to your electricity bill .
Working with your solar panels, a smart solar battery system can predict how much electricity your panels will create, and will know when to store this in your battery to lower your power bills.
Some electricity plans charge different prices at different times throughout the day for using energy. A smart solar battery, will store the electricity generated from your solar panels in your battery for you to use at night when electricity is most expensive.
When your solar battery is full and your solar panels are producing more energy than your household is using, any energy you use at home during this time is essentially free.
Investing in a solar battery with Reposit Power’s smart software will save you money while letting you enjoy your air conditioner, day or night. You can sit back and relax, without the stress about your upcoming power bill.
