An energy efficient household is one that uses electricity economically. Don’t be wasteful about how you use your appliances and when you buy new equipment, choose products that have a good energy rating. It could save you around £50 a year

Try to select appliances that carry an energy efficiency logo such as the blue and white Energy Saving Trust Recommended label, which shows the product is one of the most efficient of its kind. Look out for the European EcoLabel as well, which is given to products that are less harmful to the environment compared to similar products.
