Energy saving tips that work

While many of us complain about the cost of gas, electric and water, we regularly waste hundreds of pounds worth of energy a year. There are many ways in which to save energy and reduce your bills which include: -

Don't over fill the kettle

Defrost your freezer twice a year as this will save 10% on energy costs

Ensure you turn off your TV when it is not in use as this is a popular waste of energy

Place silver foil behind the wall holding your radiator to reflect the heat inwards rather than let the wall absorb the heat

Take a shower instead of a bath as this will save 80% of your water use

Adding draft excluders to your doors and windows will create substantial savings on your heating bills

These are just a few very simple ways in which you can save energy by taking sensible steps to reduce your usage each and every day. These are not rocket science ideas, they are practical, easy to follow and above all they do deliver substantial savings over a 12 month period. Why not try a few today and see the difference in your next energy bill?
