Your family is growing, so naturally so are your bills. Groceries, electricity and water bills are all going to increase and will stay that way unless you start to make changes now. The changes you make do not need to be drastic and definitely don’t need to involve telling your kids they need to take cold showers or go without electricity. Sitting down and looking over your bills is the first step in making changes that will help you to save money and ultimately absorb the impact of raising a family can have on your bank account. Where can you save money? What can you do without? What can’t you live without? Outlining answers to questions such as these will help you to develop a simple list that will help you to get organised and break down your monthly bills into more manageable, digestible chunks.
Water Heater Options
One area where you might discover room for improvement is in your water heater. When was the last time you had your house’s water heater inspected? Have you thought about alternatives to a traditional water heater? One such option is installing a roof solar hot water system. These systems are the most popular alternative in Australia to traditional tank heaters because they work so well in tropical to temperate climates while saving on land and household space used. Ground and roof solar hot water systems are often misunderstood and dismissed. These systems, while they’re the most efficient source of energy your household can have—especially living in Sydney—are also perceived as being the most expensive, but if you take into account the government incentives and rebates, you may find that solar water heating is much more affordable than you might think.
Researching Water Heater Options
Researching what water heating option best works for you can seem a little overwhelming and could be if you’re just asking a plumber. It’s easy to just rely on the old water heater you’ve had for years. This is a mistake. You could be overpaying hundreds even thousands of dollars a year on water heating and not even realize. Contacting a hot water specialist in Sydney is a great first step to securing the lowest energy bills you and your family has ever seen. Often installation is simple and can be done in a day. Before you start cutting back on groceries or thinking about cancelling this year’s family vacation, think about researching how you can save on your water-heating bill.
