Insulate your walls and loft
Potential saving: circa £275.
Insulating your walls and loft will help keep your heat inside, and keep your home warmer for longer.
Stay warm, cut costs
Turning your thermostat down by just 1°C can save you as much as £75 per year.
Turn the pressure down
A high-pressure power shower is a luxury, and are known to use a lot of water – sometimes even more than a bath.
Use your dishwasher
Avoid pre-rinsing the dishes in hot water. Save water and energy by scraping the dishes before they go in.
You would think using the dishwasher would use more water, however this is a common misconception. Modern dishwashers are programmed to be energy efficient and use minimal water to do the job! Washing by hand can often mean using more water.
Make things easy for your fridge and freezer.
Keeping them full means, they don’t have to work as hard and therefore they use less energy. Empty space in your fridge or freezer wastes not only space but energy too.
Shrink your bills, not your clothes.
90% of a washing machine’s energy expenditure is spent on heating the water, so if you wash your clothes at 30-40°C you’re saving significant amounts of money. Modern washing machines and detergents don’t require high temperature water so dial it down and see the results!
Hang up your laundry.
Air-dry your laundry rather than tumble drying it, particularly if there’s warm or windy weather.
