Reduce your energy bills

To help you save energy and reduce your energy bills:

  • make sure your hot water cylinder is insulated with a suitable jacket – available to buy at many DIY stores
  • set your heating thermostat at 20 degrees – this could cut your fuel bill by over £100 per year
  • draw your curtains in the evenings – 40% of heat can be lost through windows
  • only heat the rooms you use – turn off radiators in bedrooms during the day, turn them back on an hour before you go to bed
  • keep room doors closed as warm air is sucked into cooler areas like halls and landings
  • lay a rug or carpet on vinyl or laminate floors to stop heat escaping
