Tips to keep warm for less

energy-savingIt may be tempting to leave your heating on during the winter but if you’re not careful you could be hit with a hefty energy bill.

Here are our top tips to keep warm for less.

  • Switch energy companies and sign up to a cheaper tariff through online switching websites.
  • Turn your thermostat down by 1°C. This can save you up to £90 a year on your bill.
  • Turn off lights and appliances when not in use – switching appliances off standby mode can save you around £30 per year.
  • Have shorter showers – spending one minute less in the shower each day could save a family of four around £100 a year in heating and water bills.
  • Stop the heat leaks – by draught-proofing doors, windows and gaps around the floor, you can save up to £35 a year. Use energy saving light bulbs. They use up to 80% less electricity and last about 10 times longer than other ones.
  • Snap Your Bill – use our new energy advice service to reduce your bills.
