That s the advice from the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Auth- ority. Aucklanders are wast- ing millions of dollars by leaving their towel rails heated all the time, the authority warns. Heating a towel rail 24 hours a day costs around $175 a year. Most of that is wasted money , spokesman Stu- art Ross says. A timer to cut heating to eight hours a day can save a household up to $115 a year. And timers on all 401,817 heated towel rails in Auckland would save $22.5m annually in electricity costs, he says. Using a timer means you still get a nice warm, dry towel when you step out of the shower but without wasting elec- tricity and your hard earned money. The authority is en- couraging householders to install timers next time they buy a heated towel rail or have an electrician to the house. A Consumer NZ sur- vey confirms that timers can save money by switching on towel rails only when they re needed. Chief executive Sue Chetwin says timers range in price from $30 up to $220. We found the basic models were cheap, easy to use and did an effec- tive job. Gotowww. energywise.govt.nz.
