There are many things you can do around your home which will help reduce energy use and save money, many of which can be achieved with little or no expenditure at all.
• Turn your room thermostat down by 1°C and save around 10% on your heating costs without any significant difference in comfort level. The recommended temperature for a living room is 21°C;
• Drawing your curtains and blinds at dusk helps to keep heat generated in the room. Remember not to cover your radiators if possible – tuck your curtains behind your radiators if possible;
• Do not put furniture directly in front of radiators as it stops the radiator doing its job;
• If you have electric storage heaters, remember to close the damper or lower output dial before you go to bed or if you go out during the day;
