Save money on your energy bills - the Environment Centre

 

Energy prices have increased in recent years, we have all felt the pinch, below are some simple ways you can try and keep those energy bills down.

How to save money on your energy bills:

  • Little things add up, reduce your energy usage by adjusting heating/hot water controls, switching off lights when not needed and using appliances minimally,
  • Give your home a makeover, improve the energy efficiency with draught-proofing, insulation and heating upgrades,
  • Get to know your energy bills, so you understand what you are paying, how your usage changes over the year and make sure bills are based on meter readings and not estimates,
  • Pick up the phone to your Energy Provider and see if they can offer you a better tariff or any extra help you might be entitled to,
  • Change the way you pay, as paying by monthly direct debit can save you money, along with online accounts, dual fuel payments, providing regular meter readings, avoiding pre-payment meters and fixed tariffs,
  • Shop around for the best tariff to see if another supplier can offer you a better deal – the Ofgem Go Energy Shopping website is a good place to start,
