Winter Energy Saving Tips.
Winter is on the way, if your energy bill looks a bit high, there are a few reasons why it might happen to you.
We have put together some tips, so you can check and save on your next electricity bills.
Tips for Energy Saving
- Keep the heat inside during winter by sealing up any gaps and cracks in external walls, floors and ceilings. Seal external doors using draught stoppers or ‘door snakes’ at the bottom and weather stripping around the frames.
- Dress for the weather – in winter, wear extra layers inside and lower your heating thermostat. By setting your heating thermostat between 18-20%C, you can decrease your running costs by up to 10%.
- If you have a second fridge, give it a winter break – just turn it on when you need it.
- Stop using the clothes dryer and dry your clothes on a clothes line or rack.
