If you fear the arrival of your monthly DEWA bill, there are some things you can do to help reduce the amount owed.
High DEWA bills are a common complaint for expats living in Dubai, especially during the summer months, so it's no wonder we'll take any chance at reducing the cost.
Whether it's high usage of electricity due to your air-conditioning, or it's high water consumption because you're trying to keep your grass alive in the heat... There are things you can do or install to help reduce the overall cost you pay each month.
Here are 3 easy ways you can save Dirhams on your DEWA bill in Dubai:
1. Install a water aerator
Water is an invaluable resource, and wasting it is damaging to our ecosystem, as Repair Plus explain. As part of their green initiative, they offer water solutions that help to decrease your water consumption in Dubai, without changing the feel of your water pressure.
One of the products offered are water aerators having one installed at home on your tap or at the faucet helps to decrease incoming water pressure, while drawing in much more air than conventional aerators. This leads to a gentler and more even flow distribution.
2. Use LED light bulbs
The large population of expats in Dubai rent their accommodation, and thus installing LED light bulbs isn't generally on the top of the to-do list when moving every one or two years. Despite this, Repair Plus encourages expats living in Dubai to invest in LED light bulbs - which can be taken with you when you next move, too. So you're always saving money!
At Repair Plus, their green initiative encourages customers to adapt their lighting for better, long-term results. If you change your existing lighting fixtures with retrofitted LED bulbs, you'll most definitely save Dirhams in the long-term on your DEWA bill... After all, LEDs are energy-efficient, they have a longer life (one can last up to 25 years!) and they're also ecologically friendly.
3. Install ceiling fans or use a standing fan
Especially during the cooler months in Dubai when you needn't use air conditioning all day, but still would like a slight breeze - installing ceiling fans or purchasing a standing fan can really help to reduce your monthly bills... Especially if you're paying for coolant each month, too.
After all, using high-powered, low-temperature air-conditioning monthly is using a lot of electricity, and you're paying extra for coolant... Thus installing fans can really help to reduce those bills you pay each month.
