How to cut your electricity bill: Step 1

Energy monitor comparison chart

If you want to reduce your electricity bill, then the first step is to find out exactly where you are using electricity in your home. You can then make educated decisions about which lights remain on, which appliances are used and for what length of time.

We are getting an increasing number of enquiries in our web shop about energy monitors (also called power monitors or in-home displays). An energy monitor is a small device that allows you to measure how much electricity you are using and the associated cost. You can view these details almost real time and also compare your usage with last week or last month. When an appliance is switched on or off, you’ll notice the change on the monitor and will see how much the applicance is costing you in dollars/hour.

There are some differences between energy model brands, so we’ve put together a comparison chart for the 3 leading energy monitors sold in Australia.
