Here are some simple ways you can stop wasting energy and money now

 

Turn your thermostat down. Reducing your room temperature by 1°C could cut your heating bills by up to 10 per cent and typically saves around £50 per year. If you have a programmer, set your heating and hot water to come on only when required rather than all the time.


Is your water too hot? Your cylinder thermostat should be set at 60°C/140°F.


Close your curtains at dusk to stop heat escaping through the windows and check for draughts around windows and doors.
Always turn off the lights when you leave a room.

 

Fit solar panels!


Don't leave appliances on standby and remember not to leave laptops and mobile phones on charge unnecessarily.
If possible, fill up the washing machine, tumble dryer or dishwasher: one full load uses less energy than two half loads.


Only boil as much water as you need (but remember to cover the elements if you're using an electric kettle).


A dripping hot water tap wastes energy and in one week wastes enough hot water to fill half a bath, so fix leaking taps and make sure they're fully turned off!


Use energy saving light bulbs. They last up to 10 times longer than ordinary bulbs, and using one can save you around £45 over the lifetime of the bulb. This saving could be around £70 over its lifetime if you're replacing a high wattage incandescent bulb, or one used for more than a few hours a day.
Do a home energy check. Just answer some simple questions about your home and we'll give you a free, impartial report telling you how you can save up to £250 a year on your household energy bills.

 

Solar PV
Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels generate free electricity for your home. This means lower electricity bills and a potential income from Feed in Tariff payments. Solar Photovoltaic is simply a long word for 'converting the heat from the sun into electricity' see benefits of fitting solar panels to your home

 

Feed In Tariffs (FITS)
Since April The Department of Energy and Climate Change introduced a scheme that compels energy suppliers to pay you for producing electricity via PV solar panels, it is referred to as Feed In Tariffs.
