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.

What other tips to do you guys have? The more tips we can get on here, the more we can help each other reduce our bills. ☺

Bracing myself for the fourthcoming extremely bad weather we expect to arrive in the winter time. Usually after having a good summer we are battered by a really savage winter. However, my home is fully up to modern insulation specs with 30cm thick exterior insulation cladding, 45cm thick loft insulation, a new roof and major electricity saving devices inside. Including LED lights for the majority of rooms and my aquariums, and A+ rated or better appliances... It might actually surprise you to know that we haven't used our heating since March this year and it doesn't feel as though we need to put it on at all yet!
All I need to invest in now is an American style snow blower to keep my large driveway clear of snow once it starts to fall!
