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
