Turn Your Thermostat Down
Simply reducing your thermostat temperature setting by 1C could save you up to £75 per year. This is an easy way to lower your bill without noticing a difference in your heating.
Understand Your Heating System
We advise that you take some time to learn how your heating system works. Familiarise yourself with all the controls so your heating is used in the most cost-effective way. For example, an average home takes 30 minutes to cool down (longer in a well-insulated property), so consider turning off the heating half an hour before bedtime.
Move Furniture Away from Radiators
The foam in upholstered furniture absorbs heat, which will prevent the rest of the room warming up.
Lower your heating bills by keeping the temperature of your home between 18C and 21C.
Don't Dry Clothes on Radiators
Drying your washing on radiators makes your heating system work harder. This wastes energy and causes condensation, which can lead to damp problems.
Turn off any unused electrical devices
Leaving devices in standby mode will consume electricity.
