How to save on your energy bills in 3 simple steps.
We all earn money one way or another and we all want to enjoy spending on things we like. Bills are not what we want to spend money on so it’s good to look at ways to save. Here are some energy-saving tips.
Step 1. Check you are on the best energy prices available.
Sometimes, all you need to save money on your energy bills is to compare the different suppliers’ prices. This is quick and easy using an online price comparison site like ours.
Our service shows you ALL the available home energy suppliers prices and lists them in order of total cost for the year. It also shows you saving available compared to your existing supplier.
Step 2. Replace your old appliances with energy-efficient models
Your appliances use the electricity that you need to pay for, so when it’s time to buy new, it’s a good idea to choose appliances that are energy-efficient. You can find out how energy efficient an appliance is by checking the visual indication label which will show you how the appliance rates in its energy usage.
And you can check how much electrical items cost by using our running cost calculators.

Step 3. Insulate, insulate, insulate
One of the best things that you can do to reduce your heating bills is to take a look at insulating your home. Insulation in your loft, as well as your cavity walls, could save you as much as £275 per year on your heating bills. The reason for this is because the insulation traps the warm air in the home and stops it escaping, therefore keeping your home warmer.
Use your thermostat to control the temperature of your home. By simply taking down your thermostat by 1ºC you can save yourself as much as £75 per year.
Sort out those drafts – No-one likes to feel a chill blowing through their house, which is a reason enough to look at your drafts and where they are coming from. Stopping those drafts, you will also help to use less gas in heating your home, which will save you money.
