You’ve probably found that your household uses up a lot of energy – especially if your electricity and gas bills are high. Did you know that there are many easy and quick ways to reduce your energy usage and save money?
Here are some things you can start doing today to help!
Turn off your appliances
Leaving your appliances on and plugged in – even if they are on standby – can use up energy. Start switching off and unplugging the TV when it’s not in use. It may seem like something small, but it can end up making a big difference.
Get a smart thermostat
Having a smart thermostat can save you money because they know how to heat your home the smart way. They are programmed to only heat up rooms that are in use and learn how long it takes to heat your home – this means the smart thermostat will be able to heat your home efficiently to exactly the right temperature. Smart thermostats can also be controlled from a mobile device, meaning you’ll never have to come home to a cold house again!
Replace your light bulbs
Simply switching out your regular light bulbs for energy-saving ones can save you a lot of money per year. Energy-saving light bulbs last longer and are cheap and easy to get too. This is a change you can make today to start saving energy!
Invest in energy efficient appliances
If you’re on the hunt for a new appliance then take a look at the energy efficient ones on the market. These kinds of appliances may be more expensive because of their efficiency, but they will save you money in the long run so they are a worthwhile investment.
