Energy Saving Tips

Sometimes a small change to your lifestyle or habits can make a big difference to your pocket.
To make your home more energy efficient and keep your bill down, start using these energy saving tips:

  • When possible, don’t leave heating running when out of the house
  • Try turning your thermostat down by one degree – this can save around £40 a year.
  • Don’t obstruct radiators
  • Insulate your loft space and cavity walls
  • Avoid heat loss through large windows by drawing curtains when possible
  • Use energy-efficient light bulbs
  • Turn off household appliances when not in use
  • Use low-temperature settings on appliances
  • When using a kettle, only boil as much water as you need
  • A standard shower will use around 40% of the water a bath will use
  • Keep thermostat temperatures to a minimum while remaining comfortable
