Sadly the only way to reduce your electricity bill in Singapore is to cut down on the amount of electricity that you use. How can you do it?

Here are 5 top tips for saving electricity at home in Singapore:

#1 Air Conditioner

The main contributor to expensive bill. Switch to fans when the weather is cool. However if switching on the air conditioner is a must here in Singapore, here are some advice.

  • Set the temperature to 25 degrees or higher
  • Clean your filter every month
  • Switch to inverter air-conditioner
  • Switch off air-conditioner one hour before you wake up and get the fan to take over during this period.

#2 Water Heater

Always switch on the heater when you are about to shower and remember to switch it off when you are done. Reducing your shower time helps too!

#3 Switch to LED Bulbs

LEDs offer significant energy savings (80%) over incandescent lightbulbs. They also emit less heat. Time to head to your nearest lighting shop.

#4 Turn Off Your Switch

Turn the switch off when you are not using your electronics. Leaving it on standby mode means electricity is still being use.

You may also consider a smart plug which you can control using your phone. Here we highly recommend TP-Link HS100 Wi-Fi Smart Plug.

  • Remote Access– Control devices connected to the Smart Plug wherever you have Internet using the free Kasa app on your smartphone.
  • Scheduling– Schedule the Smart Plug to automatically power electronics on and off as needed, like setting lights to come on at dusk or turn off at sunrise.
  • Away Mode– Turns your devices on and off at different times to give the appearance that someone is home.
  • Amazon Echo Voice Control– Amazon Echo (sold separately) lets you control devices connected to the Smart Plugs just using your voice.
