Need to save money on your energy bills?

Switching off lights and upgrading to LED

When they are not being used or a room is not vacated switch them off. To save even more consider switching to energy efficient LEDS and you could save on your energy bills. LED lighting is also long-lasting meaning you will also save on maintenance costs. LEDs use up to 80% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs, and they can last up to 25 times longer. Lighting can be controlled from your smartphone, meaning you can turn off lights without even touching the switch!

Switch off standby

Always try and remember to turn off your appliances such as your TV from standby mode. You could save around £55 a year! Consider using a standby saver or smart plug which will enable you to turn off all your appliances in one go.

Install motion sensors

Within business/commercial premises consider installing motion sensors in areas such as toilets, storerooms and corridors, so that lights only turn on when someone is present. This will help reduce energy waste and you will reduce your energy consumption.

Upgrade to energy efficient appliances

The more energy efficient an appliance is, the less energy it needs to run, and the less energy you need to pay for. Look for products with an energy star rating and you can save considerably over time.

Monitor energy use

Install a smart meter to keep track of your usage and identify areas where you can make changes to reduce energy wastage.

Understand your boiler and invest in heating controls

Setting it correctly could help you to reduce your heating bill. If you have a thermostat, consider turning it down. By reducing the temperature by one degree you can reduce your bill by over £100 a year!

Wash at 30

Abandon the tumble dryer and switch to using the eco settings on your washing machine and dishwasher to save more energy.
