I want to know how to save money on energy, how can OVO help me?

The easiest way to save money on electricity and gas is to cut back on how much energy you use.

Of all the things you can do to save energy, improving your home's insulation will have the greatest impact. From DIY solutions like extra sets of curtains and draft excluders, to loft insulation, new windows and more, a well-insulated home can cost much less to heat because you’re not paying to heat the outside air.

Insulation is great if you’re wondering how to save money fast. However, there are lots of other ways that you can be smart with your energy use to save money. These include:

Turn off the TV 

Stop leaving your TV on standby every night, and you could save up to ££s over 12 months.

Only using what you need 

Why boil a full kettle when you only want a cuppa? You’ll use much less power – and save £££s – by getting in the habit of only boiling enough water to do what you need to.

Be clever with your laundry 

Turn the water temperature down to 30 degrees, and make the most of breezy days. If you do your big washes on windy days and air-dry, you’ll save money, and your sheets smell lovely and fresh without the fabric conditioner.

Turn your boiler down 1 degree

It’s a great way to save on your energy bill each year.

Cover pots and pans

They boil much faster, and there’s less steam too.

Get smart 

A smart meter can help you become more aware of what you’re using and when. If you become more aware of where you’re spending most, then it’s easier to make lifestyle changes and save money.
