Here are a few energy saving tips to help you save money and reduce carbon emissions in your home:

 

Around your home

  • Place draught proof strips around windows and doors
  • Close doors to unheated rooms that are not being used
  • Close curtains at dusk and consider adding a thermal lining to the curtains

 

Kitchen

  • Only fill the kettle with the amount of water required
  • Try and use your oven for batch cooking and the microwave for re heating meals
  • Use pan lids to reduce steam and save energy
  • Try and wash at 30 degrees and always make sure you have a full load

 

Bathroom

  •  Try taking showers instead of baths
  • Consider installing a water efficient shower head
  • Don't leave the tap running when brushing your teeth

 

Heating

  • Try turning down your thermostat by one degree
  • Use your timer to control your heating and hot water
  • Try adding an extra jumper before putting the heating on!

 

Lighting

  • Change all light bulbs to energy efficient LED's
