Use your kettle
efficiently to save.
Boiling your kettle several times a day can add up to a surprising amount of energy. To minimise energy usage here are some helpful tips to consider.
Firstly, be mindful of the amount of water you fill in your kettle. By boiling only the amount of water you need, you can save on the energy and time required for boiling larger volumes of water. Most kettles have markings on the side to indicate the water level, enabling you to easily determine the appropriate amount. If you're in the market for a new kettle, opt for an energy-efficient model and choose the right size for your needs.
Over time, mineral deposits can accumulate inside your kettle, making it work harder to heat the water. To address this issue, a simple solution is to boil water with half a cup of lemon juice and then perform another cycle with just water. This helps remove the mineral build-up and ensures your kettle continues to operate efficiently.
