The recent 18% electricity tariff hike by Eskom may have you scrutinising your monthly expenses. As a nation, we are facing increased energy costs, and heating water – a significant portion of our household energy bills – takes on even more weight. Yet, your Smart Geyser stands ready as a trusted companion in this journey. Let’s explore how you can effectively leverage your Smart Geyser’s features to navigate the Eskom increase, with some useful tips on when to heat water and how to optimise your energy savings.
Harnessing your Smart Geyser’s efficiency
Your Smart Geyser isn’t just a water-heating device – it’s an intelligent tool designed to facilitate energy efficiency, ultimately leading to substantial cost savings. With its cutting-edge features, such as remote control, programmable heating schedules, and energy use insights, it empowers you to optimise your water-heating schedule to suit your lifestyle and save money.
Ways to leverage your Smart Geyser for energy savings
- Set your heating schedule: The programmable feature of your Smart Geyser allows you to time your water heating during off-peak hours. Consider scheduling your geyser to heat water just before you wake up, or late at night for the next day’s use.
- Control your temperature: Lowering your Smart Geyser’s temperature setting can significantly reduce energy usage. Aim to keep the temperature around 55°C – this is adequate for most household needs, and also ensures safety from scalding.
- Keep tabs on your energy use: Use the insights provided by your Smart Geyser to understand your energy-consumption habits better. With this knowledge, you can identify peak usage periods and discover opportunities for further energy savings.
With a Smart Geyser at your side, the Eskom increase doesn’t have to spell disaster for your electricity bill. Instead, view it as an opportunity to become more energy-conscious and efficient, maximising your Smart Geyser’s capabilities to soften the blow. It’s about making smarter choices, for your household and the environment.
