Some Saving tips.

Switch off during evening peak
Did you know that your geyser contributes up
to 30% of your monthly energy usage? Switch it off during peak
times, between 5pm to 9pm to help reduce electricity demand.

You can also use a timer to control the geyser’s heating cycles. Even a solar geyser can backup to electricity, and a timer can then control its consumption on days that are overcast or days with persistent rain. 

Shower instead of bathing
When you shower you use considerably less water than bathing and, if you use a water-efficient showerhead in your shower, you are doubling your efforts to save on hot water, which means less work for
your geyser. 

Led Lighting

Replacing all your incandescent bulbs with LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) and CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Lamps) will contribute greatly towards reducing your electricity consumption and in the long term your bill. Additionally, switch off the lights if you’re not
occupying a room. Consider using motion sensors to detect movement in home spaces, which then auto switch off when rooms are unoccupied. 

Below are some of the options available in our inverter range.
