Who likes to waste energy? No One!! So why not get your house kitted out to be more energy efficient for only $50 with Climate Smart, if you're in QLD, Australia. The Climate Smart Service involves a licensed electrician and maybe his apprentice (shock absorber) coming to your house and and installing an energy monitor, a water saver shower head where suitable and also up to 15 CFL bulbs throughout your home, this installation will only take an hour or so. We had the plumber at our house at the same time, on his knees repairing the faucet under the sink. The Electrician walked into the kitchen to replace the old bulb,
Plumber: "You the electrician?"
Sparky: "Yeah, that's me."
Plumber: "Good, can you get these shorts out of my ass?"
What is it with tradesmen and their cracks these days? It's almost like it's in fashion. The energy monitor provides great real time information on your homes power consumption in an easy to understand format. We've had this service installed at our home and it's brilliant! We're now much more aware of which appliances chew the power. The LCD monitor will provide information on your current power usage, how much co2 emissions your home is producing and a current monetary estimate of your bill amongst other features.
If you have a 3 phase home the energy monitor is only connected to read one tariff, so it will not include information on off peak tariffs, like those connected to your hot water systems etc.

*FREE Ceiling insulation worth up to $1600 is available in Australia now with the government home owner Ceiling Insulation Program. You can call 1300 059 225 or visit www.bunnings.com.au/spotless to find out more.
* Consider turning your water heater down to a warm setting to help save energy and avoid hot water injuries. This will save 14 - 25% of your power bill.
* Set your air conditioner to 25C or 77F, this is the most economical setting. Some people find 25C to be too warm to set the air conditioner to. If that’s the case for you then running a fan is an economical solution to help augment cooling provided by the air conditioner. So a great option is to run the fans on high with the air conditioner set to 25C rather than setting the air conditioner any cooler then that.
* Replacing your regular incandescent bulbs with “Compact Fluorescents” (CFLs) can save 3/4’s of the electricity used by your regular bulbs. If you're in Australia you can have your whole house refitted with CFL's for around $50 by an electrician. And they can also install a energy/bill meter in your house so you can gauge your power consumption on a daily basis and it also tells you how much money your bill is going to cost before you get it.
* When it comes to heat pumps, air-conditioners and furnaces-cleaning the filters or replacing them can have an effect on your energy consumption also.
* Replacing weather stripping and applying new caulk to windows and doors will help keep the cold out and heat in.
* Low-Flow shower heads as well as aerated faucet heads can help save on your water consumption.
* If some hot water pipes or ducts are located in unheated areas, wrapping them in insulation can help keep the water warmer and prevent the water heater from running excessively.
* Wall Insulation. If you’ve got the bucks, have fiberglass or cellulose insulation installed into the walls by an insulation contractor. Doing an upgrade on the attic insulation will pay off too.
Over time these few tips put in to action can really reduce your carbon footprint and save money on your energy bill.

Fridges consume a large portion of your homes energy. To make sure it's running efficienlty here are a few tips -
- Make sure the fridge seals are in good order. Test -place a piece of paper half way under the seals and close the fridge. If you can pull the paper out easily you might need to adjust the hinges, or replace the seal.
- A 5 or 6 star fridge will save up to 4.5 tonnes of greenhouse gasses and anywhere up to $450 over it's lifetime.
- Allow hot food to cool down before putting it in the fridge, but don't let it sit at room temperature for too long.
- Avoid over loading the fridge or freezer - try to leave about 20% free space for air circulation and maximum efficiency.
- Cover liquids and cling wrap foods stored in the fridge. Uncovered foods and drinks release moisture and make the compressor work harder.
- Locate your fridge in a cool spot, not some where it's exposed to sunlight or heat.
- Don't let the kids window shop for minutes at a time with the door open. The fridge will use extra energy to cool back down.

Hi, my name's Martin from Cairns, Australia. My girlfriend and I were searching the internet for the best way to reduce our carbon foot print AND make a self sufficient home. Remarkably we found: "FREE ENERGY" This was something COMPLETELY UNFAMILIAR to me! I hadn't heard of a zero point generator before either!
I checked out the website... I thought it was a bit sketchy at first. I did some extensive research about the product MAGNETS4ENERGY and magnetic energy generator IT'S LEGIT! We bought it straight away to try it out!
Now, i don't know anything about electronics, but FREE POWER really interests me! My power bills were through the roof and I figured why not? It might save me a few bucks. This e-book actually has the plans for a device that will create free zero point energy and will work all by itself producing that energy we all desire for free.
I was very impressed with the easy to follow straight-forward instructions Magnets4Energy gives you on how to create your own home power, FREE! Everything was very well laid out and very easy to read and it comprehensively explained to me in detail, EXACTLY what I needed to obtain to make my own free energy generator.
The Magnets4Energy System is the most efficient alternative energy system available today. It is estimated that this exact technology, that i am exposing to you today, will be used by every major energy company before the year 2020. With the detailed Magnets4Energy free energy plans, it's simple and cheap for you to use the system now!The BEST THING is that for a LIMITED TIME, the scientists who designed the Magnets4Energy system are offering a promotional 75% Discount Price!
You're probably asking yourself these questions:
- how does the system work?
- how can I save money on my power bill?
- how cheap it is to install?
- how cheap is it to run?
- is it easy enough for me to build and install myself?
- does it REALLY PRODUCE FREE ENERGY?
Let me tell you EVERYTHING NOW - TODAY! So you too can get started on creating energy self sufficient homes.
The Magnets4Energy Magnetic Electricity Generator works based on a simple concept. It uses magnets and electromagnetic energy to induce perpetual motion. It runs all by itself continuously, GIVING YOU FREE MAGNETIC ENERGY! There are NO maintenance costs which saves you money and your generator will never need a third-party device or another resource for power. EVER. We are familiar with how a solar panel turns light into electricity - apply this concept to the Magnets4Energy Generator because it turns magnetic energy into electricity!!!
The process is so simplistic. The generator is very basic - it requires practically no maintenance. Unlike solar or wind power solutions, the Magnets4Energy system does not rely on weather to provide power, meaning that it will run self sufficiently non stop, giving you a continual supply of free energy!!
My girlfriend and I are so EXCITED that we have created free energy power!!
Together we built a "half house generator". Each generator was capable of providing 100% of the electricity for more than half of our house. We were AMAZED that we could generate free energy!!
We followed the construction process with ease and each of the generators cost approximately $100 to build, including all the supplies required which are easily obtained from local hardware and electronic stores. We LOVED how descriptive the Magnets4Energy E-book is! The guide was SO SIMPLE to follow! We got it right the first time!!!
