With the Queensland Government announcing large cost saving measures in last week’s Budget, there’s little chance of household costs falling. September 24, 2012
With the ongoing threat of Queensland’s state-owned power companies being privatised, an upcoming summer with a very high risk of bush fires and expensive power distribution infrastructure in need of constant maintenance and replacement, cheap, reliable electricity in Australia is fast becoming a thing of the past.
As people look for ways to save money on electricity costs, all kinds of schemes and subsidies have been used in an attempt to bring down usage and costs.
For example, South East Queensland distributor Energex is currently offering an incentive package when a peak demand management device is installed on air-conditioning systems. This device allows Energex to automatically turn down air conditioners when the grid is overloaded, which happens a few days every year. However, it doesn’t save owners any money on running costs.
And solar power installations have been extremely popular, with recent news reports revealing Queensland’s power consumers will fork out more than $25 million in subsidies to home owners with solar panels this year -- more than triple the expected cost -- as 63,000 householders applied for the state's generous scheme in its dying days.
But with air conditioners typically one of the most expensive appliances to run, what can consumers do to reduce energy consumption, while staying cool throughout the summer?
Australian company Aircon Off has released a unique and innovative system that will significantly reduce air conditioning power bills. In essence, it turns off the air conditioning automatically when the room is empty.
“In our research, we found it very common for people to either deliberately or unintentionally leave the air conditioner running when they leave a room or unit unoccupied,” said Aircon Off General Manager John Clifford. “Of course this results in a huge waste of power, wears out expensive equipment and dramatically increases running and maintenance costs. It is the bane of the holiday rental business, wasting multi millions of dollars per year”
Once fitted, the Aircon Off will save enough in energy bills to quickly pay for itself. After that, owners will pocket the savings for years to come. Using this unique energy-saving device will significantly reduce electricity bills, cut maintenance costs, and increase the life expectancy of air conditioning equipment, while reducing a property’s carbon footprint.
The Aircon Off energy saving system is available throughout Australia, is inexpensive and simple to install. For more information about Aircon Off and their efforts to help Australians to reduce air conditioning costs, visit http://airconoff.com.au and check them out on YouTube.
