Follow a few simple tips at home and save pounds on your energy bills and help the environment.
For most people setting the thermostat at 65°C
is fine for bathing and washing. This will save you
up to £10 a year.
By installing roof insulation or adding to your existing (minimum recommendation 150 mm thick) can reduce your heating bill by 15% upwards and also reduce your carbon footprint.
Televisions, videos, stereos, computers and cordless phones: Avoid leaving these items on standby and remember not to leave them on charge once they are fully charged.
Washing machines and tumble dryers: Always wash a full load and if you can’t, use a half-load or economy programme. Always use a low temperature programme - modern washing powders will be just as effective at lower temperatures.
Washing clothes at 30º - 40ºC uses a third less power than washing at 60ºC. Choose an ‘A’ rated machine to reduce electric as well as water consumption.
If your boiler is over +10 years old, it is probably time to think about replacing it with a new ‘A’ rated condensing boiler which will save you 10% on your heating bill and also reduce your carbon footprint.
By setting your room thermostat 1º lower you’ll reduce your heating bill by as much as 10% and also reduce your carbon footprint.
