If saving money is going to be your New Year’s resolution for 2017, why don’t you add saving energy onto the list as well? You surely know by now that by saving energy you’re also saving yourself lots of cash, so it’s a total win-win for all involved! Here are 5 resolutions to help
you get started.
Weather-proofing your home can save you a lot of energy and it’s also easy and quick to do. Perhaps start by thinking about the loft and the walls, as this is where the majority of your heat is lost from your home.
Think about your lighting at home – do you think you could make any improvements anywhere? Making your appliances and lighting more energy efficient could save you a lot of money, so think about taking out your old traditional lightbulbs and add in some LEDs wherever you can.
Review your water heating
You could also save yourself a bundle by lowering the temperature on your water heater or perhaps installing a low-flow showerhead. You’ll soon see your heating bills reduced. We bet your family won’t even notice the change!
Use an extension lead
Even if your appliances are turned off they still use energy when they’re plugged in. Save yourself some time (as well as energy and money) by using an extension lead so that you only have to unplug one item instead of lots of different ones.
Turn the lights off
It sounds simple but you’d be surprised how many people leave the lights on when they’re not in the room. Get in the habit of turning them off each time you go out of a room and your energy bills will thank you for it.
