Energy consults very popular!

12 August 2013

There must have been an increase in energy charges again this past month as we’ve had a significant rise in calls for energy assessments to help people to reduce their energy bills.

One of the things we’ve found is that householders don’t always want reports! What they do want is someone to tell them whats causing the energy usage and what they can do about it, and to be sure it’s independent advice with no product sales attached. Lucky for us because that’s what we do and what we’re good at!

Energy assessment consults take between 1-2 hours and are focused on exactly what the householder wants to know. If it’s a high energy bill then we identify where it’s coming from (often heating, hot water or pools/spas). All we need is your energy bills, all you need is a note pad and pen.

So far this month we’ve identified 2 fridges using loads of energy, several electric panel heaters using lots of energy, a fantastic opportunity for a client to use passive heating in their home and an easy solution to reduce lighting costs in 2 homes with lots of 50w halogen down lights. Love this job :)

So if you’re wanting to know whats happening power wise in your home, get in touch and we’ll be able to identify what is using ‘watts’ for you, and help out with how to deal with it.
