How to save on your gas and electricity
The cost of your energy bill depends on your usage and the supplier’s rates. Here are a few savvy savings tips:
Set your heating for the right time
Don’t leave the radiators on while no one’s home. Drop the temperature by 1°C to save as much as £60 per year.
Wrap your home up
Thicker curtains, draught blockers and rugs can keep your home well insulated
Turn things off
Appliances on standby still use power, so turn those off when not in use, as well as more obvious things like lights
Get the right lights
LEDs use less energy and last much longer than alternatives like halogens
Putting your clothes on a colder wash uses less energy – having cooler showers also helps if you’re brave enough!
Upgrade your appliances
…and in with the new – modern appliances have better energy ratings. You might even be able to find some newer second-hand items for a bargain price
Use a smart meter
It lets you see how much energy you’re using, which could help you budget and reduce your usage
