Why should you go all electric for your home?

November 26, 2021

Australia’s new home sales climbed 11.1 percent month-over-month in October 2021, amid a lift in consumer confidence following an end of COVID-19 lockdowns in some states in the country, data from the Housing Industry Association (HIA) showed. However, your home may be more reliant on fossil fuels than you think. Australian households generate at least one-fifth of Australia’s greenhouse gases – more than 18 tonnes per household each year. 

Benefits of going all electrical

The idea of an all electric home can be cheaper to build and occupy. There are several benefits of going all electric. Let’s consider a few.

1. Reduce your energy bills.

Energy efficient technology can help you save a lot of electricity. The new technology emerging in the market is energy efficient appliances and machineries. Saving on electricity means saving on your energy bills. You can roughly save 15-25% on your energy bills by switching to energy efficient appliances. One of the best electrical appliances you can shift to for saving thousands of dollars on your electricity bills is the grid Solar panel system. It requires minimum electricity to function and in return can power all your appliances.

2. Reduce your carbon footprints

Electric homes powered with solar and other renewable energy can lower your greenhouse emissions and contribute towards the environment. If you shift most of your usage to the day time by using automatic timers and latest technology energy efficient appliances, solar can be a wonderful investment. You can save a lot of money you spend on your quarterly power bills. Even if you do not use solar in the day time, you can benefit from feed in tariffs at the end of quarter, so solar is always going to be worth it.

3. In simple words, it is safe!

Electric systems do not emit any kind of toxic chemicals. Burning fossil fuels leads to emission of toxic chemicals that can harm you and your family’s health. Carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide are examples of such chemicals that when get into the body through nose or throat can cause heart diseases, may lead to stroke or even cause cancer. It is thus necessary for us to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. Install a rooftop solar and save yourselves from bill shock and harmful chemicals. Get your solar quote from Solar Bridge today.
