How to reduce energy bills 

1. Reduce your energy use 

The less you use energy the lower your energy bills will get. It is one of the easiest and quickest ways to save money, and we recommend reducing your gas usage as much as you can.

2. Choose eco-mode

Have you ever considered only using your appliances in eco mode? This is typically available for dishwashers, washing machines and boilers, which can be controlled via a smart thermostat. They effectively lower the water temperature and only turn on when the temperature drops. 

3. Invest in a smart thermostat 

Smart heating controls provide you with greater control over how you use the heating in your home, enabling you to manage it better and, as a result, reduce energy waste. One of the most significant advantages of smart thermostats is multi-zone heating. This enables you to heat specific zones in your home rather than heating the whole house. For example, it only heats areas that are presently in use.

4. Improve insulation

Did you know that a quarter of the heat is lost via the roof in an uninsulated house? To prevent this from happening in your home, our heating engineers recommend placing a layer of insulating material in your attic. This helps keep heat in your home for longer, thus decreasing your central heating consumption and energy expenses.

5. Compare energy quotes 

Because of the present energy crisis, there are few chances to switch to a more competitive energy tariff. But we still recommend looking into one.  However, many energy providers have gone out of business, and many more continue to deny new clients but comparing energy rates is one of the simplest methods to save money on your heating bills.
