How Can I Save Energy?

Get help from the government

With the cost of gas prices increasing, the government is now supporting those with low incomes with their energy bills by offering various discounts. To find out if you qualify for this, head over to the gov.co.uk website to find out more.

Deal with draughts

If you have gaps in your doors, windows or even floors, it lets cold and warm air in and out of your home. To prevent this from happening, you can look into installing draught excluders, suitable sealant, insulating strips or even blankets to use as draught excluders. 

Insulate your home

You can save a lot on your energy bills if your home is very well insulated. Did you know the majority of your heat is lost if your roof is not properly insulated? Make sure to check the roof, cavity walla and even solid walls are properly insulated to prevent this. Adding insulation under your floorboards can help further reduce your energy bills. 

Install a smart thermostat 

When you install a smart thermostat, it allows you to have better control over your heating. Reducing the temperature down slightly will help you reduce your heating bills. You are also able to schedule them so it knows when to turn the heating off when you are away from work and when to turn it on when you are about to arrive.
