Energy advice

You can keep cosy and save you pennies with these handy hints

  • Try turning down your thermostat by 1oC – this could save you up to 10% on your heating bill
  • Keep your central heating set so that your room temperature is between 18oC and 21oC
  • Defrost your fridge regularly so it works more efficiently
  • Turn off your TV and other appliances at night, rather than leaving them on stand-by
  • Only fill jug kettles with the amount of water you need
  • Don’t trap heat – avoid placing large pieces of furniture in front of radiators
  • Turn off unnecessary lights
  • Low energy lightbulbs use less power than standard bulbs and can save you up to £9 a year
