It is important for you to really understand how your energy consumption affects your usage levels – and ultimately, your bill. These are just a few tips which could help you to ensure that you stay within your energy allowances and improve your awareness of what is required to be energy efficient. Not living efficiently costs valuable money – and frankly, it’s not that difficult to adapt. So, whilst the nights are colder and longer we thought we let you in on 5 ways to save energy this winter:

1. Get rid of those draughts

Unless you live in a new home, draught spots are very common. Invest in draught excluders for windows and doors – they can make a big difference to the temperature of your property!

2. Let the sun in during the day

The sun is a free natural source of warmth, so open up those blinds and curtains during the day – it’s far nicer than artificial light anyway.

3. Close the curtains at night

On the flipside, you will lose a lot of heat through your windows when the sun goes down. So keep the warmth by closing those blinds and curtains to insulate your home at night.

4. Keep it constant

Consider keeping your heating on a lower heat full-time as this can be more energy efficient than switching it on and off throughout the day.
