With winter fast approaching, many people in Bulimba real estate and the surrounding suburbs are gearing up to fight off the frostbite and keep cosy in the evenings. Power bills are notorious for rising during the year's cooler months with heated towel rails and heaters being put to good use across the country.
There are simple ways of saving money on your energy bill this winter, so the only bite you feel is stepping outside in the morning.
One of the easiest ways to keep warmth trapped in your home is to make sure all your windows are secured tightly and the curtains are pulled in the evening.
This added insulation will prevent heat from escaping and help to retain warmth in your home without resorting to turning up the heater.
Purchasing a low-flow shower head can use between 25 and 50 per cent less water with no reduction in user satisfaction. This will help cut down your hot water bill, saving you money on both your power and water bill.
Turning off appliances at the wall when they aren't in use is also a tried and true way of cutting down your energy spending. The combined cost of all your appliances on standby each night can reach considerable levels.
