  • Reducing the amount of energy you use can help you save money on your bills. Here are some simple ways to make your home more energy efficient.

  • Environment

    use less

    Small changes at home can make a surprising difference to your energy bills. And planning ahead when you buy new household items can help you save even more money.

    • See the light. Swapping a single filament bulb with one that's energy-efficient could save up to £451 over the life of the bulb.
    • Look for A+ appliances. When you're looking for a new appliance, try to pick one with the highest energy rating.
    • Switch up your heating controls. Consider installing thermostatic radiator valves and a programmable thermostat. This means you'll only heat the areas of the house that need heating when they need it.
    • Get a condensing boiler. Heating and hot water make up around 60%1 of your annual energy costs. This means that switching to an efficient, modern boiler can have a big impact on your bills.

    waste less

    Unless you live in a newly built home, you could be losing a surprising amount of your heating to the outside world.

    • Plan ahead. Making a number of improvements to your home at the same time could reduce your energy use by over 60%1.
    • Double up. Installing secondary glazing will reduce heat loss. Double glazing is even more efficient – and makes your home quieter – but it's also more expensive to buy.
    • Mind the gap. Simple draught-proofing makes your home more comfortable and can bring your energy use down.

  • Low cost

    the small things

    Finally, don't think you have to spend money to be more energy efficient. Taking control of your bills starts with some little changes.

    For instance, washing clothes at a lower temperature, defrosting your freezer regularly and making sure your heating is turned off when you're not in can all make a difference.
