With energy bills forever rising it has become more important to make the home an energy saving area. The problem homeowners have is the cost of upgrading to save energy and not having spare funds to achieve this.

Many people are completely unaware that improving the homes energy efficiency can be done in some cases for very little investment or no cost at all. Another statistic that hits home is that an inefficient average 3 bed home can be wasting up to £850 on energy bills, that’s over £70 per month.

If you want to fight back and start reducing your overheads here’s a few ideas to get you going.

The first thing to do is check on site what you could get upgraded or installed free of charge. Insulating the loft, new boiler, or cavity wall insulation etc.

Simple but effective ways that will cost very little to implement.

Let the sunshine in. On a sunny day, opening your curtains will let warmth into your house, but when it's colder or the sun goes down don't forget to close them to keep that heat in.

Get the kids involved. Play energy-saving games with your kids. Get them to spot the areas in the home where energy is being wasted and where lights, switches or appliances have been left on.

Washing the clothes. 90% of a washing machine's energy expenditure is spent on heating the water, so if you wash your clothes at 30-40 °C you're saving significant amounts of money.

Save time and stock up. If you're going to use the oven, bake a few meals at a time to get the most out of having your oven on. After all, ovens don't allow us to heat one shelf at a time so why waste your heat?

Any help needed?
