Last Wednesday, the BBC’s Watchdog explored how consumer can save money on energy bills over the winter months. The programme was aired in response to the fact that 42% of brits are concerned how much they are paying for energy bills over the colder months.
Whilst some families shared that to keep warm they wear more layers, use blankets or hot water bottles, Watchdog shared efficiencies to help consumers save money on their energy bills.
Here are some of the tips the programme shared:
- Turn the heating thermostat down by 1 degree. Nobody notices the temperature difference, but your wallet does.
Don’t let you water run whilst doing the washing up. Turn the tap off and use a bowl. This can save £30 on your energy bill.
- When using the kettle, do not fill the water to the product’s full capacity unnecessarily. The less water, the less energy and consequently the less money spent.
- Fill your dishwasher to its maximum capacity to make the most of the money spent using energy to wash the dishes. Economy settings also help reduce the cost of energy.
- Invest in energy efficient light bulbs. This can help households save £35 a year.
- Fit reflector panels behind your radiators. These reflect the heat emitted on the back of the radiator back into the room.
