8 Ways You Actually Can Save Money On Your Energy Bills

Energy Bills

If you are spending far too much $$$ on bills, help is at hand. Although it sounds a little boring but if you’re scraping by on only £100 each month in central London – saving £50 on your bills will go a pretty long way.

Here are some of the 8 useful ways you actually can save money on your energy bills:

1) Tap in your current tariff to the uSwitch website

uSwitch is an online and telephone service that compares all the tariffs across all the suppliers. Every year electricity and gas companies change their prices so it is worth doing this on a regular – ideally annual – basis.

2) Get an energy efficient programmable thermostat

Adjusting the temperature of the radiators in your home all the time can waste energy and cost you more. A programmable thermostat will maintain the minimum heat you want in your home, which can be added to when needed.

3) Chuck out your ancient fridge, freezer, washing machine and dishwasher

It might have only been £20 to pick up on eBay but that’s because it’s probably an energy (and money) guzzler. It’ll cost you less in the long run simply investing in the latest energy efficient versions.

It’s also worth making sure you only use them at non-peak times (get yourself a delay timer) and keep them clean so they run efficiently.

4) Don’t use those portable heaters

They gobble electricity. Get yourself a proper radiator installed instead.

5) Avoid the microwave and use the oven instead

Keep lids on your pots to keep the heat in and don’t open the oven door to check on stuff too often either.

6) Turn off your plug sockets when not in use

Even if you aren’t using your electronics, they will still draw from the plug socket if left plugged in. It isn’t actually good for the battery on your laptop, phone or whatever to be left charging when it is already full anyway.

7) Switch to energy efficient LED lights

Bin those incandescent old light bulbs. They may cost only a few quid in the shops but they’ll cost you a whole load more in electricity bills.

8) Don’t waste water and fix any leaking taps or pipes

You’re on a fixed tariff for your water? Well, it still costs you in electricity every time you use water in your home. That’s because it gets pumped. So don’t waste it.
