Energy Saving Tips Around The Home

May 8, 2014 Supplier Info

  • Ensure that fridges and freezers are defrosted regularly to improve efficiency.
  • Make sure your fridge and freezer are not next to a heater or oven, as this will make them work harder to keep cold and use more electricity.
  • Use the right sized pan for the food and the hob.
  • Use saucepan lids to help keep the heat in while cooking.
  • Turn off the lights when you leave the room.
  • Don’t leave appliances on standby. Turn them off completely when you are not using them.
  • Invest in thick, good quality curtains to keep the cold from your windows out of the room.
  • Replace standard light bulbs with energy saving ones. If you replace one standard light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) of the same brightness, you could save around £3 per year.
  • Dry laundry outdoors whenever possible instead of using a tumble drier.
  • Never dry clothes on your radiators. This prevents heat from circulating in the room and means your boiler will have to work even harder to heat your home.
