This Small Change Could Save You Over $500 This Summer

Close to a quarter of Australians admit to leaving their air conditioner running when they're out - something that costs on average $578 each summer. 

A Finder survey found those either forgetting to turn their air con off, or just wanting a frosty reception when they get home, are wasting an average of 4.1 hours in energy per day.

Heating and cooling accounts for 40 per cent of household energy use, Australian Government’s YourHome guide.

Those who are leaving their aircon on overnight are also racking up huge bills - with a typical split cycle air conditioning unit can cost close to $13 per night if you leave it running overnight.
