We know the recent energy hikes are a concern for many, so we’ve put together some advice to help you reduce your energy use whilst staying warm at home this winter.
Move furniture away from radiators
Valuable heat is often absorbed by furniture. Moving furniture helps your heating system warm the room up quickly and efficiently.
Close the doors
Trap the heat into the rooms you are using by shutting your internal doors and keeping window trickle vents open for ventilation.
Shut up shop
Close your curtains when the sun sets to keep the heat in
Turn radiators down or completely off
Only heat the rooms you’re in, so you don’t waste energy heating empty spaces in your home.
Choose low-energy appliances
When it’s time to replace or upgrade, always consider those that are labelled as energy star certified and opt for LED lightbulbs.
Bulk it out
Batch cook meals and only use the washing machine or dishwasher when full.
