Why Switch To Energy Efficient or Water-Efficient Products

Personally, my household uses an energy-efficient refrigerator, LED lights and water-efficient water fittings.

It is an easy decision to make due to the cost savings.

According to NEA, an average household could save $40 – $120 every year if they switch to energy and water-saving products.

For example, when households switch from a one-trick to a three-tick refrigerator model, you could save about $50 annually within the 10-year lifespan of the appliance.

Not to mention that these using energy and water-saving electrical appliances is good for the environment and helps fight climate change as well.

The National Environment Agency (NEA) has estimated that if all 300,000 eligible households made the switch, they could collectively save 400 million gallons of water each year.

That’s not all.

This will also reduce carbon emissions equivalent to taking 31,000 cars off the road each year!
