Energy efficiency is just as important for your home as fuel economy is for your car. If your home is not energy efficient you are effectively wasting energy.
With electricity and gas prices rising at significantly higher rates than inflation, this can be costing Australian households big dollars. If your utility bills exceed $1,000 per quarter you really should ask what you are getting for this and whether there's a better way to spend your hard earned money.
Methods for changing your energy use can be much more proactive than turning off the lights when not in use or avoiding the clothes dryer. If you're building a new home or renovating, energy efficient home design allows for a smarter approach to saving power.
Heating and cooling account for around 38% of a typical home's energy use.
Saving energy is also sustainable. It makes the best use of our non-renewable resources and reduces pollution. This helps protect our fragile environment for future generations to enjoy.
Combine systems to maximise energy savings
With Bradford you can combine home insulation, Edmonds Ventilation, Solar panels and energy efficient lighting to reduce your dependence on utility companies and keep your home at a more comfortable temperature all year round.
Combining Bradford insulation and Edmonds ventilation is a sensible decision as the two systems complement each other to provide a natural and temperate home year round. For example, the Edmonds Odyssey Hybrid Ventilation system efficiently manages your household temperature at around the same energy use as a single halogen light, an annual cost of less than $30.
Reduce your energy bills further with a Bradford Solar PV system
Bradford Solar installation can make your home even more energy efficient. With over 1 million solar systems in Australia and counting, you too can make the move to solar and independently manage your electricity.
Solar will allow you to reduce, even eliminate future power bills. Depending on the size, your energy usage, and your location, installing Bradford Solar will provide you with sufficient electricity independence to beat the inevitable rise of Australian energy costs.
