Energy Saving Tips

If you have a hot water tank, make sure it's well insulated with a good three-inch thick jacket. It'll only cost a few pounds but will make significant long-term savings on your fuel bills.

If you have central heating, turn the thermostat down by 10C - it could cut heating costs by 8-10%.

If you want a single cup of tea don't fill the kettle - but cover the element. It could save £10 a year.

Fit low energy light bulbs - especially in lights you use a lot. They cost a little more than standard bulbs but can last ten times longer and can save you £10 a year.

If you have radiators fitted against outside or party walls, try putting foil behind them (kitchen foil attached to thin card will do). It could save £5-10 a year.

Four showers use about the same amount of hot water as one bath - shower to save energy.

Use the sun's heat - open doors in sunny rooms and let the warm air travel through your home. It could save you about £5 a year.

As it gets dark close your curtains and keep the heat in - if you have radiators by windows, tuck the curtains behind them. It could save you around £15 a year.

Make sure your clothes washing machine is full unless it has an economy cycle. Use low temperature washes (most modern powders work best at these temperatures) and when possible dry your washing outside.

Don't keep your cooker on full heat after a pot's boiled - a low heat will keep it simmering.

Shelves above radiators help deflect the warm air towards the middle of the room and could save you about £10-15 a year.
