Even the simplest energy-saving habit, like boiling only as much water as you need for your morning cuppa, will cut down on your fuel bills over the long term. Whether you want to combine lots of small changes to make a big impact or go full steam ahead and install solar panels and a mod-con boiler, here are our tips to give you a jump start along the road to greener living:
Start small and win big over the long term by incorporating daily energy-saving habits into your lifestyle.
If you’ve got the cash to get cavity wall/loft insulation, a new economical boiler and triple glazing go for it. All of these features will help to insulate your home so it feels warmer whilst using less energy. This not only helps you save on your bills but also reduces your carbon footprint. Better yet, generate your own green energy with solar panels and get part-way to becoming self-sufficient.
If you haven’t got the funds to install these environmentally-friendly features you might be eligible for an energy grant that helps you make updates for free through local government schemes.
Choose an energy supplier that offers you the best deal! It takes minutes to compare tariffs on our Energy Saver app and you can switch companies with ease without it affecting your gas and electricity supply. Lots of us are automatically placed on a standard tariff, which isn’t always the cheapest deal, and remain on it unquestioningly, believing it to be the best available rate. See if you can make a small saving and use the extra cash to update your home with more energy saving features.
