Australians spend an average of almost $1,700 on gas and electricity every year, per household. This figure is only an average, so households with more people tend to have an even higher expenditure each year. That said, the number of people living in the home is only one factor that increases cost. One of the biggest reasons for high gas and electricity bills is energy lost through inefficient appliances and power-sucking electronics. It is estimated that only 65% of the bill is for utilities that were actually used, while the rest is wasted power that didn’t benefit residents.

One of the best ways to reduce dust that collects on all our surfaces is to clean out our ducted heaters. If that isn’t enough to get you going, you can also save money in the process!
