It makes a lot of sense to live in an all-electric home.
Many of the latest electric appliances are now far more energy-efficient than their gas equivalents, meaning better for the environment and household energy bills.
But what’s involved in going all-electric and what steps do you have to take in your home? The latest issue of ReNew: technology for a sustainable future answers just that in its All-Electric Home Special.
As well as case studies, the Alternative Technology Association (ATA) revisits its modelling of the economics of going all-electric, including how having solar panels helps in the financial equation.
ReNew also answers some commonly asked questions: how do you disconnect from the gas network, when do you need to start thinking about three-phase or a higher amperage power connection and can a keen cook be wooed away from cooking with gas?
But there’s a lot more in the latest issue, including solar sizing, prefab insulated panels, high performance blinds and curtains and renewable energy in Indigenous communities.
And you can learn about the latest in home insulation in the magazine’s comprehensive Insulation Buyers Guide.
