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 a range of 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 and 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
