Why not pledge to save energy at home? Here are some ideas
Add some extra layers to your home
Reducing heat losses through insulation is a great way to save energy. There are lots of things in your home that will benefit from some extra layers.
Don’t sweat it!
Many of us keep our homes warmer than they need to be. Did you know that reducing your thermostat temperature by just 1°C can save about £60 a year? Between 18°C and 21°C is ideal.
Stay out of hot water
The more water you use and the hotter it is, the more energy it takes.
Light up your life
Aim to reduce the amount of lighting you use - there are ways of brightening up your home that don’t involve turning up the dimmer switch.
Is that TV really off?
Switching an appliance to standby is not the same as switching it off. Remarkably, some appliances use 90% of the energy on standby that they use when they're on!
Cook up some savings
A few small adjustments in the kitchen can make a big difference to the amount of energy you use.
Fill in the cracks
Do your best to stop cold air coming in and hot air going out.
Do your laundry for less
There are lots of energy-efficient ways to get your clothes clean.
The science of appliances
Keeping your appliances serviced and in good working order will mean they are operating at their most efficient.
You won’t know if you’re saving energy if you don’t know how much you’re using.
