Easy Energy Saving Tips

Easy Energy Пра Saving Tips Energy costs are rising. So how can you cut the cost of your bill? There are basic ways of making your home more energy efficient and saves money. Put a Jacket on. Tip # 1 Don't worry, we aren't talking about the jacket that you wear, rather the one your tank will. If you have an uninsulated hot water cylinder you could save money by fitting a tank jacket. You can also insulate exposed pipe work around the cylinder and boiler. You can fit everything yourself and save about £60 a year through insulating. Tip Be in control. #2 You can then make savings by using your controls more effectively. Decide when you want the heating to come on, only heat the areas in your home where it's needed and decide on a temperature. Turn down your room thermostat by just 1 degree will save you around £65 a year. Destroy all draughts. Tip #3 Check for gaps around your doors, windows, floor, chimney or anywhere heat may be escaping. Use draught-proofing products for the doors and windows, fit a chimney draught excluder or use sealed fire guard's. Also, seal your skirting boards with silicone sealant. Check your loft. Tip #4 Many people complain about their houses being chilly, even with the heating on full blast. Double-check your loft insulation to see if it needs to be replaced or topped-up. This should be the first place you check, as cold air travels downwards, therefore this could be the root problem to your shivers. When it's not in use, turn it off. Tip #5 If you turn a light off for a few seconds, you'll save more energy than it fakes to switch on again. That applies to all light bulb types. Most electrical appliances can be turned off at the plug without upsetting their systems. The average family could save between £50 and £90 a year just by remembering to turn appliances off. Tip Care for your Kitchen. #6 You can save energy bills with careful use of kitchen appliances. For example, Set your washing machine to wash at 30C. Only use your tumble dryer when you can't dry clothes outside. Don't fill your kettle up to the top, instead just boil the amount of water you need. Tip Install renewable energy. #7 Solar PV provides your property with solar energy and reduces your energy bills as your producing your own energy! Heat pumps, air source and ground source heat pumps can provide your property with renewable heat. Install renewable energy such as Solar PV or Heat pumps and see the difference that it makes to your energy bill.
