  • Taking shorter showers. The recommended maximum shower time is about 5 to 10 minutes. 

  • Lowering your maximum temperature on your hot water heater.

    • (No lower than 60 degrees Celsius to minimize the growth of Legionella bacteria)

  • Switching off lights in rooms you aren't in (The most common areas are bathroom, lounge, kitchen and bedroom).

  • Keeping doors and windows shut in rooms that you are trying to maintain temperature. 

  • Switching to compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) or light-emitting diodes (LEDS) will save you 6 times as less energy compared to traditional light bulbs.

  • Blackout curtains are great at preventing the winter cold and summer heat from entering your home. (They are also great at reducing outdoor noise)
