8 Ways To Recover Money Through Your Energy Bill
Paying utility bills is an unfortunate necessity, particularly when households shell out thousands of pounds each year on their energy outgoings. Finding any ways to recover money is always going to be a bonus. With our expert money saving tips, you could knock off as much as £500 from your annual statement.
- Lights Off
Ensuring the lights are switched off when you leave a room goes a long way to chip away at your energy bill. By using LED, energy-saving lightbulbs, you could save as much as £180 over it’s lifetime. LEDs use 90% less energy than traditional bulbs and last for a whole while longer.
- Heat Escape
Heat has been escaping your home for decades, because of the age-old curse of the draught. Households become inclined to turn up their heating to recapture their warmth, but by addressing the issue and reducing any gaps, you can expect to save up to £50 a year.
- Don’t Just Standby
By completely switching off your appliances and not through standby mode, most homes can save up to £30 per annum.
- Wrap Up Warm
You have probably been hearing this one for years, but by putting on another jumper, you can keep the heating temperature sensible. By reducing your heating by just 1°C, you can cut your yearly bills by up to 10%.
People can be wary of free schemes, due to their scam-like reputation. However, free loft insulation and cavity wall filler not only helps to warm your home, but we predict you could save as much as £315 from your outgoings. Researching whether you are entitled to claim any free insulation could be well worth the effort.
- Colder Wash
By simply washing your clothes on a cooler setting at 30°C, you could make savings of £52 a year. Occasionally using a hotter wash will help to clean your machine, but modern detergents will guarantee clean clothes on the colder setting.
- Supplier Switch
If you haven’t changed your energy supplier in the previous three years, it’s likely you can save cash. By shopping around and using comparison sites, such as switch.which.co.uk , households can save a whopping £369.
- Meter Read
Reading the meter and paying for what you have used allows you to avoid any complications. It is the most accurate method and unlike an estimation, you won’t be building up any credit or debit balances.
