The famous phrase says: ‘Take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves.’ The same thing goes with your utility bills. Every tip that we offer you below, will help reduce your bills and over the course of the year this could add up to significant savings.
Turn off lights
When you are not in the room, make sure the lights are off. Even leaving hallway lights on can add money to your fuel bills unnecessarily.
Cook in bigger batches
When you are cooking meals for the family cook in bigger batches and freeze leftovers for another day. Heating up a meal will use less energy than making the same meal from scratch again.
Turn the temperature down on your washing machine
Where possible wash your clothes on a lower temperature, this will save energy and your clothes will come out just as clean
Turn the thermostat down by a degree or two
We all like a toasty home. By turning down your temperature down by a degree or two will not make too much difference on how you feel, but it will save the boiler working to heat up to that higher temperature.
