How much power a home uses varies a fair bit and is dependent on a number of factors including size of the home, insulation, how many people are living there, pools and heating methods. All of these different sources of power draw combine to make up your dreaded power bill and it can add up quickly.
The average Aussie family household comes in at around 19KWh per day which translates to roughly $2500 a year in power bills. Obviously as the family and home size increases so does the bills.
