5 easy ways to save money on your energy bills
Britain’s current energy crisis has seen bills rising across the board. If you’re anything like us, you’ll have been wondering how to save money on your energy bills...
The good news is there are several low-cost household items that can help you slash your energy bill - even better news is that we’ve made a list of the best ones for you!
Insulate your home to reduce heat loss
Placing a thin strip of reflector foil behind your radiator is a simple and accessible method to help reduce heat loss in your home.
Acting as a barrier, radiator reflector foil ensures heat is bounced back into the room, which can save up to 70% of heat that’s normally lost into the wall.
According to Which?, having a properly insulated loft can help save up to £315 per year on your energy bills.
If your loft is accessible, installation is an easy task and doesn’t require a professional - making this an achievable way to save money!
Cut costs with a clothes airer
Did you know that, according to the Energy Saving Trust, each tumble dryer cycle uses about 4.5 kWh!
While convenient, using a tumble dryer regularly consumes a lot of energy, which equates to money out of your pocket. Instead, use a drying rack to air dry your clothes and save a bit of cash!
Get energy-efficient light bulbs
Replacing your current light bulbs with LED lights is a quick way to cut costs – and reduce your carbon emissions at the same time!
Lighting makes up 11% of the average UK household electricity consumption; by switching to LED, you could reduce your carbon dioxide emissions by 40kg a year.
A simple change, but it’s the little things that add up!
Save water with a washing up bowl
Looking for a cheap and easy way to save money on your water bill? The solution could be found in the humble washing up bowl. No, really!
With the average household using 349L of water each day, there’s lots of opportunity for waste – which ultimately comes out of your pocket.
Using a bowl ensures you don’t waste any unnecessary water while cleaning your dishes, putting every penny to good use.
