Save Energy

posted by constance

We had a shock last night when hubby said our electricity bill was so high. I suppose it could be because the new tariffs for the final quarter was reported to be an increase of 25% for however little amount you used due to the petrol hike 3 months ago. Electricity tariffs do not fluctuate as fast as they are being set on quarterly basis. The new rate will only be effective when we get the January bill so we have to bite the bullet for the meantime. The other reason that I think our bill is high is because of the air conditioning compressor of ours. As we have an older version that was intalled many years ago, it certainly is not optimized for energy saving. Perhaps we should look into those that our government had recommended to purchase. The ones that has energy saving feature.

    Sigh… our bill also very high!

  2. Ryan mami Said,

    I do not understand why it’s so high as we only turn on the aircond for 1/2 hrs at night.

  3. Ryan mami Said,

    Bear in mind, only turns on the aircond in our bedroom. No aircond in the living room also. I guess the culprit would be the big fridge and also hubby’s computer… on for 24hrs! *sigh*
