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:

number 1

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.

number 2

Wrap your home up

Thicker curtains, draught blockers and rugs can keep your home well insulated

number 3

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

number 4

Get the right lights

LEDs use less energy and last much longer than alternatives like halogens

number 5

Wash colder

Putting your clothes on a colder wash uses less energy – having cooler showers also helps if you’re brave enough!

number 6

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

number 7

Use a smart meter

It lets you see how much energy you’re using, which could help you budget and reduce your usage
