The easiest way to save money on electricity and gas is to cut back on how much energy you use. There are lots of ways you can be smart with your energy to save some pennies.
Only using what you need
If you'd like to make a cuppa, only boil the kettle with enough water for one cup (or two if you have company!). You'll use less power and get into the habit of only boiling enough water for what you need.
Turn down your thermostat
This is one of the best ways to conserve energy. By turning it down as little as one degree can mean that you can save between £85 and £90 a year.
Turn off the TV
Don't leave your TV on standby each night and over the year, you'll be able to save £'s!
Wash clothes on a lower temperature
Instead of washing at 40 degrees, turn your water temperature down to 30 degree to reap the benefits. In the summer months, make the most of the sunshine, summers breeze and longer daylight hours by hanging your washing up on the line to dry.
