How a hot water timer can help reduce your bills

Reducing household bills is currently a priority for many Queensland households, and one effective way to achieve this is by using energy saving devices such as hot water timers. In this article, we will break down how you can save money with hot water timers and other water saving tips.

Understanding the impact of hot water usage
Hot water systems are one of the largest consumers of energy in Australian homes, making it a perfect opportunity for potential savings. Traditional hot water systems keep water heated constantly, leading to energy wastage when hot water is not needed. This is where a hot water timer can make a big difference.

What is a hot water timer?
A hot water timer is a device that controls the heating times of your hot water system.
Instead of keeping water heated around the clock, the timer allows you to schedule when the system turns off and on. This ensures that water is only heated during periods when it is most efficient.

Benefits of using a hot water timer

  • Limited heating times reduce energy consumption, lowering energy bills.
  • Reduced operation time means your hot water system will have a longer lifespan.
  • Customisable settings cater to your household’s needs.
  • Low energy consumption means a reduced carbon footprint, contributing to a more sustainable environment.
  • Maximises your PV Solar efficiency.

Tips for maximising water savings

  1. Water efficient appliances – look for the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) label when purchasing appliances.
  2. For tasks like laundry, use cold water whenever possible to save on heating costs.
  3. Choose drought resistant plants to reduce outdoor water usage.
  4. Fix leaks promptly, no matter how small they are.

Lowering your bills by saving water is not only beneficial for your wallet, but also the environment. By implementing these recommendations, you can significantly cut down on both water and energy consumption.
