Other Appliances

  • Don't leave appliances on standby! Don't leave appliances, such as TVs, stereos, computers, monitors and DVD players, on standby and remember not to leave appliances like mobile phones or laptops on charge unnecessarily.

  • Make sure your appliances, electrical circuits and cooling systems are properly maintained. Check your owner's manuals for the recommended maintenance.

  • Only boil as much water as you need.  Why heat a whole kettle of water just to drink a cup of tea?

  • When the opportunity arises to replace appliances form a habit of buying only energy efficient appliances.

  • Avoid running large appliances such as Air conditioners, washers, dryers and ovens during peak demand hours (between 6 and 9 am and 6 and 9pm)
