Easy Ways to Cut Your Natural Gas Bill
When it comes to things you want to do with your money, paying more for your energy bills isn’t likely to be on the list. Natural gas costs are among the biggest energy costs, so it pays to think of ways to decrease your expenses. Here are a few tips to help you save.
Don’t Do the Dishes
Let the dishes accumulate in the sink. Washing by hand uses more energy. Wait until you have a full load of dirty dishes. When you do, try to use the economy mode that washes dishes at a lower temperature to save money on heating water.
Postpone Laundry Day
Similar to dishwashing, postpone doing laundry until you have several loads and do it all at one time. Use cold water in the rinse cycle to further reduce hot water usage.
Order Take Away
Preparing meals on your natural gas appliances is a delight in itself, however, have you ever noticed what you kitchen feels like in the midst of a hot humid Brisbane summer? It’s hot and humid, just like the exterior. Do yourself and your energy bill a favour on these days and order take away. Leave the cooking to someone else and you’ll save money in the process.
Take Speed Showers
Every minute in the shower uses approximately 7.6 litres of water, which you must heat. Wash as quickly as possible to reduce the amount of heat used.
Whenever possible, upgrade to a digital thermostat on water heaters and other appliances. By doing so, you’ll be able to reduce your natural gas bill.
Review and Reduce
Have you noticed something? Almost every way that you can reduce your natural gas energy bill involves water. According to the Australian Government, approximately 21% of a typical household’s energy usage involves heating water. By finding ways to reduce the amount of water you use, you could also reduce your gas bill. Methodically go through your gas bills to determine if you can find a trend. If you find your bills are higher at certain times, ask yourself what your family is doing and how you can reduce those costs.
