There are several small thing you can do in your home to save you money and use less energy.

Give these a try, you'll see the difference in your pockets by the end of the month!

Water

  • Don't leave the tap running when cleaning your teeth
  • Take a shower not a bath, a 5 minute shower uses less water than a filling a bath
  • Put a filled plastic bottle in the cistern to reduce how much water you use
  • Fill your washing machine and dishwasher before putting it on
  • Contact us as soon as you notice a leak in your home
  • Ever though about buying a water butt to collect rain water? These are really handy to water the plants instead of using tap water

Electricity

  • Change to energy saving bulbs, these last 10 times more than a normal bulb
  • Wash your clothes at 30 degrees
  • Reduce the temperature of your fridge, 1 or 2 degrees can make a huge difference.
  • Close the curtains in winter, stop drafts and keep the heat in your home
  • Fancy a cup of tea? Nobody else fancy one? Don't fill the kettle to the top, just boil enough for one cup of tea
  • Defrosting your freezer twice a year can reduce costs by 10%
  • Use your washing line to dry clothes instead of throwing them into the tumble dryer
  • Putting your lights off and on a lot can use more electricity
  • Your tv will still use electricity when it's on stand-by - put your tv off completely if your not watching it.


These are only a few simple changes - our Energy Wardens can help you with so much more.
