Electricity is very dangerous and must be used in a proper manner in and around the house. Contact a professional if you see anything that can be a danger to you or your family and report any faults to the proper authorities.

Follow these tips and see your electricity bill declining on a monthly basis:

Reduce the temperature of your geyser to around 55 degrees Celsius so that you don't need to add too much cold water when you shower or do the dishes. Remember to keep the lid on the pot when you cook to conserve heat and energy. The size of the pot should match the size of the stove plate; this can save you up to 25% on the electricity you use while cooking. Close the windows and doors when the heater is on and save money! Close the door every time you take things out of the fridge and also check that it seals properly. Try to boil only the water you need instead of boiling a full pot or kettle every time. Insulate your geyser by wrapping newspapers, old blankets or other insulating materials around it and the hot water pipes. Switch off lights, fans, computers and other energy-consuming appliances when you leave the room. It will save you money. Reduce your electricity account by skipping the washing machine's pre-wash cycle if your clothes are not particularly dirty. This will use up to 20% less electricity. Use energy-saving light bulbs. They last much longer and use less electricity, saving you money in the long run. Check you electricity or gas meter at regular intervals and take a keen interest in your energy consumption level.
