I live in a 2 bedroom apartment, on my own. I have no air conditioning and what I would consider an average amount of electronics (TV, fridge, games console, 2 x computers, washing machine & dryer), yet my quarterly bills are regularly $600+ which seems excessive to say the least. There’s nothing else I can switch off yet no matter what the bills remain the same, how is this possible?
Thanks for your post!
The first thing to check is your appliances to ensure that they're operating exactly as they should be and that they're not faulty. Also, there is always more that we can be doing to use our appliances more efficiently! You can find more information about this here. As a rule, any appliances that heat up as a part of their function (e.g. a clothes dryer) will use a considerable amount of energy, so this will be the best place to start.
