Lower your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint this year.
1) Turn off your lights
Start off simple and turn off your lights when you are not using them or when you leave a room – this can go a long way.
Replace halogen light bulbs with LED bulbs of the same brightness – this can save you money each year.
2) Be careful with your washing
You can save around £30 a year from your energy bill by just using your washing machine more carefully:
Use your washing machine on a 30-degree cycle instead of higher temperatures
Reduce your washing machine use by one run per week for a year.
3) Spend less time in the shower
If each person in the house kept their shower time to just 4 minutes, this could save a typical household £65 per year on their energy bill.
Having a 4-minute shower as opposed to a bath will save more money.
4) Saving in the Kitchen
Kettles are one of the most used appliances in the kitchen. We are all guilty of boiling a kettle with more water than we are going to use. Therefore, avoid overfilling your kettle!
Only run your dishwasher when it is full to reduce the amount of water you use.
5) Heating your home
Something as simple as turning your heat down by 1 degree will save energy
Why not go back to the old-fashioned way and add some extra layers for comfort too!
If it is cold, try only heating the rooms you are using. Turn off the valves on all the radiators in the other rooms.
We have done our research, but you should too! There are so many ways to save energy, money, and our environment.
