How to improve energy efficiency in your home
Energy bills are top of mind for Australian households. Here’s how to make simple lifestyle changes and home investments to improve your energy efficiency and transition to a cleaner energy future.
Factors like the weather, the number of people living in your home, and your living habits all affect your energy bills. Some things are outside your control, but there are small changes you can make to improve energy efficiency in your home.
“The great news is that you can make a big difference to your energy usage and efficiency in the home without spending a cent,” explains RACV Executive General Manager - Home and Energy Nicole Brasz.
“Heating and cooling accounts for 40 per cent of energy consumption in the home.
