How small steps can add up to big savings

The following simple actions could save a household of four about $605 over the course of a year.

  • If you've got a second fridge, getting rid of it could save around $172 a year.
  • Switching off the game console after use could save up to $193 a year.
  • Using the clothesline instead of the dryer once a week could save $79 a year.
  • Installing a water-efficient showerhead can save a 2-person household at least $160 a year on energy and water costs.

These amounts are a guide only. Exact savings will vary depending on the age of your appliances, the size of your home, the climatic zone you live in and the energy prices you pay.
