Make huge savings on your heating bills in the winter with our expert energy saving tips.
Use your thermostat effectivelyCutting down your bills can be as simple as turning down your thermostat by 1°C. According to the Energy Saving Trust, this could save up to £75 a year in a typical home, so put on a jumper before you turn up the heating.
Replacing lightbulbsEnergy-saving lightbulbs last much longer than traditional ones, easily cutting your energy bills and removing the hassle of regularly swapping out your bulbs.
DraughtsStop heat from escaping through unwanted gaps and you’ll be looking at energy bill savings. Be sure to check these areas for draughts:
- Doors – you can add draught-proof strips or draught excluders to the edges
- Windows – Again, you can use draught-proof strips around the frames
- Fireplace – Block with an inflatable pillow if it isn’t used
- Attic – Stop heat from escaping out of the attic with draught-proof foam strips
