Have a warmer winter

Be geyser-wise

GEYSERS are a major contributor to rising energy costs, especially during winter when they lose more heat faster due to the colder weather. Your consumer champion, Cashbuild, offers these tips to help you save energy and money:.

Change a wall plug

Use a black rubber plug for an appliance that uses a lot of power such as a toaster or tumble dryer.

Install down lights

Space the lights about two metres apart to get good overall illumination.

Tidy away cables and wires

Check the length of the wires before sticking them down. Make sure there's enough slack to allow you to plug in items so you don't have to reglue the wires.
