There are plenty of ways you can save energy, cut your bills and make your home even cosier.
Some are easy wins and little things you can do right now like switching off the TV at the wall, or turning your thermostat down by 1°C. Others, like installing cavity wall insulation, require a bit more planning but over time are well worth the investment.
To help waste less energy and make your home warmer, we’ve put together a handy guide. It covers everything from home appliances and lighting, to heating and insulation.
Need help keeping cosy and cutting your energy bills? We’ve partnered with the Centre for Sustainable Energy to give you free, impartial advice on how to do it.
From tips on energy efficiency and renewable energy to how to apply for grants and financial support, we can talk you through it. And remember, if you are of pensionable age; have a disability, hearing and/or visual impairment; or suffer from long-term ill-health, there may be special help available so don’t forget to mention this to us when we chat. Just give us a call on 0800 408 6601 to speak with an energy efficiency expert or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The energy efficiency advice line is open Monday to Friday 9am - 6pm. An answering machine service available at all other times. If calling from a mobile, call 0117 934 1999.
OVO is installing energy efficiency measures across thousands of UK homes as part of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO).
ECO is an energy efficiency programme designed by the Government. It’s funded by energy suppliers who are responsible for delivering energy efficiency measures to households across the country, helping to make sure homes waste as little energy as possible. The less energy wasted, the warmer your home and the lower your bills!
Through the scheme, we will be supplying funding for energy saving measures like wall insulation, cavity wall insulation or replacing a boiler that is either broken or not working properly.
If you’d like to find out more or check if you could be eligible for ECO, you can have a look on the Government’s ECO website, or call the Energy Saving Advice Service on 0800 408 6601.
