The washing machine needs to be reprogrammed to ensure it uses the free hot water and doesn’t heat its own. These things might seem obvious but it’s worth checking to make sure your appliances are programmed and connected correctly. These small changes will save an additional $240 per year so they are defiantly worth doing.
Some other things to put on the checklist are, appliances on standby, turn them off at the wall.
Leaky taps, change the washers and don’t forget to check outside taps as well as inside.
Don’t use the dishwasher or the washing machine until you have a full load. But make sure they are programmed and connected as efficiently as possible otherwise you will be wasting big dollars.
