have you gotten to the source of it?



i use storage heater...does it use more electricity?

my fridge 3 ticks.according to sticker shd be $15/mth...

i on 1 aircon $90 but u on 3 everyday only $100amazing...
Yeah, I changed my aircon last year. Regularly service it with Gaincity, 3 or 4mths once to ensure efficiency. Recently the regulations for energy savings has been more strict, my fridge previously was 4 ticks, was downgraded to 2 ticks.

My gain city staff don't recommend me 5 ticks, ask me to go for 4 ticks. 5 ticks although save more power, but it has lesser power. Moreover, the compressor for 5 ticks will be louder, so if your compressor is outside the master room, it will be loud at night. 4 ticks will be sufficient and compressor less loud and has more power to cool my entire house with less electricity.

Suggest you might need to service your aircon.

Switch off your storage water heater after bathing. Switch it on 5-15 minutes before bathing.

This is a massive eater, you would save at least $10 every month.

True, storage water heater is the killer.
Dun on it when someone bath, on it for like 30mins and 3 person can bath after that.

So which eats more power? Storage water heater or instant water heater ?

Definitely storage heater as it needs to heat up the whole water tank.

Oh really? I see, I'm using electric instant water heater. Some people have gas storage water heater. My side no instant piped gas.
