This week is the Big Energy Saving Week – a national campaign to help UK households cut our energy use & spend.
So we’ve put together a few helpful tips to help you save money on your utility bills:
1- Electrics: Turn things off by the plug – it will save more energy than at the switch or with a remote control.
2- Heating: Every degree above 20°C can add 10% to your heating bill and in winter, heating can account for over 30% of your bill. The optimal temperature for your thermostat in the winter is 18-20°C.
3- Lighting: When you leave a room, turn the light off. Too many of us leave the lights on in room that aren’t being used, which is a complete waste of your money. Of an evening, go old school and light some candles in your bedroom, bathroom and living room.
4- Long Term: Consider switching to solar energy or any type or renewable energy type – with low maintenance costs, and lower electricity bills.
