Hot water and the environment

Around 30 percent of household energy is used to heat water.  More than half of hot water use is in the bathroom, a third in the laundry, and the remainder in the kitchen. Between 25 and 50 percent of the average Australian household's electricity and gas, bills are for hot water heating. Here are a few things to consider:

  • Setting your thermostat so that water is too hot to use wastes energy. Then you waste cold water to cool it to a useable temperature. Ask us to adjust it for you
  • Use separate hot and cold taps over sinks and basins. Mixing taps are usually left in the middle position so that every time you fill a glass or pot, you draw off unwanted hot water that just cools in the pipe. You could also add inflow regulators to save water and save
  • Install the hot water system as close as possible to the kitchen and bathroom to avoid wasting hot water in long sections of pipe. We do bathroom and kitchen renovations, ask us about the most efficient plumbing in your plans
  • Insulate all hot water pipes to reduce any heat loss further. We can do this for you
