With energy costs set to rise across all of Australia, you might be wondering what you can do to cope with the increased cost of living. Luckily there are ways to reduce your energy bill and lower your residential & commercial energy use.
Energy efficient products are a great way to reduce energy consumption, whether at home or at your commercial property. This is where LED lighting can help reduce your energy bill.
LED lights use 75% less energy than the usual equivalents you would find in your home, making this a must-have upgrade. What’s even better? You can get free LEDs just by going through Auspro and doing a free eligibility check here. All Victorian residents, commercial property owners, and tenants who have old, inefficient lights are eligible to claim the offer under the Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program.
Another way to save on your energy bill is through a free hot water system upgrade, also courtesy of the VEU program. Turns out many hot water systems are outdated, inefficient and costing Australians more money than they can afford.
New heat pumps are capable of being up to 70% more efficient than electric hot water systems. The DynaHeat Split System Heat Pump is a government-backed hot water system that is on the top of its game in the energy efficiency market, and it is free for anyone that has an old hot water system.
Check your eligibility at Auspro here and upgrade your residential or commercial property to save on your energy bill.
Extreme weather in Victoria, whether it’s blistering hot summers or freezing winter months, can push your air conditioning into overdrive.
If your air conditioner isn’t efficient, it can increase your residential and commercial energy use and raise your energy bills.
By taking advantage of the Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program, you can gain a rebate to upgrade your home’s air conditioning and reduce your energy bill. Low income and vulnerable households can be eligible for a base rebate of $1000 provided towards the cost of purchasing and installing a high-efficiency heating and cooling system, and additional funds for other associated costs.
If you are a small business and wanting to upgrade, do not worry. As part of the Small Business Energy Saver Program for Small Businesses, you can also upgrade and might even be able to score a free heating and cooling system.
Check out an accredited installer like Auspro here for more information about upgrading your heating and cooling system.
These are some ways you can reduce the stress of the rising costs of living and work towards a more energy efficient life. By taking advantage of these grants and programs, you may not even have to spend a single dollar to reduce your residential or commercial energy use.
