Tips that cost nothing

Always turn off the lights when you leave a room.

​Close your curtains at dusk to stop heat escaping through the windows.

​Only boil as much water as you need when using a kettle.
Fix leaking taps and make sure they are fully turned off.

​Is your water too hot? Your cylinder thermostat should be set at 60°C/140°F – Turning down your thermostat by 1 degree could save you up to £65 a year.

​Energy costs money do not leave appliances on standby – this could save around £35/year on energy bills.

​Take a shower – it’s faster, cheaper and more efficient than your bath.

​Make sure the brightness setting on your TV is suitable for your room. The brighter the TV is set, the more energy it uses. The factory settings on TVs are often too bright for home use.

​If possible, fill the washing machine, tumble dryer or dishwasher – one full load uses less energy than two half loads.

Put your digital recorder on a separate plug socket so you can turn off everything else at the mains but keep your series link recordings.

​Do a Home Energy Check! Just answer some simple questions about your home and we’ll provide you with a free report, informing you how you can save up to £280 a year on your household energy bills!

​Shop around for the cheapest gas and electric prices. One of the easiest ways to do this is by using a price comparison website. We recommend checking for the best rates every 12 months.

​An Energy Monitor is an excellent way to keep track of how much electricity you use in your home and you can save hundreds of pounds by observing and acting upon the information it provides.

​Gas and electricity company’s make money by keeping customers and getting the most out of old customers. They don’t get that by giving the cheapest rates. It is well worth shopping around for the best deal with comparison sites.
