Energy Saving Tips

In addition to comparing energy prices on a regular basis, we have come up with some energy saving tips that could help you save as much if not more than switching energy supplier:

Insulate your home
• Use a timer to set your heating and hot water supply so they only come on when you need them; just before you get up in a morning. You can then make sure they are off when you leave the house.
• Set the hot water thermostat to either 140 degrees Fahrenheit or 60 degrees Celsius
• Turn down your thermostat. Put a jumper on and reduce your room   temperature  
• Turn lights off when leaving a room
• Close your curtains to stop heat escaping
• Check windows, doors and floorboards for draughts
• Don’t leave appliances on standby
• Don’t leave laptops and mobile phones on charge
• Try to fill the dishwasher, washing machine or tumble drier before using
• Fix any leaking taps and make sure they are turned off
• Only boil as much water as you need
• Use energy saving light bulbs
• Get an energy monitor. You do have to buy them but monitoring your usage may save you money in the long run

• Choose energy efficient appliances that are cheaper to run
