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:
Stop leaving your TV on standby every night, and you could save up to ££s over 12 months.
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.
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.
It’s a great way to save on your energy bill each year.
They boil much faster, and there’s less steam too.
