Layer Up

A super simple solution that many of us forget to do when feeling chilly, layering up with some warm winter clothing while inside the house will keep you feeling cosy even when the heating is turned down.

Always throw on a few extra layers before you touch the heating, as this can save you a considerable amount of money on your next energy bill.

Insulate and Seal

You’d be surprised at how much money you could save on your energy bills by simply sealing up any drafts you find around the house.

Resealing your home is one of the easiest and most effective ways to reduce your energy bills, so check windows, doors, chimneys, and behind cabinets and wardrobes for drafts and reseal said drafts as soon as possible.

Unplug at Night

Remember to unplug any electronic device not in use before you to bed, as plugged in devices waste electricity even if they’re in ‘standby’ mode.

If won’t result in massive savings but will help you to keep energy bills down all year round.
