Energy prices are something that many households struggle with, and the price of our energy bills is something that we would all like to reduce. As well as saving money, saving on energy is also good for the environment and with the world in the midst of a climate crisis there has never been a better time to start looking at ways to reduce our energy usage.

Making simple changes around the home is a good first step in reducing the energy that you use. Just by changing all of your light bulbs for energy saving ones you can save a lot. When you are shopping for new appliances, look for the most energy effective ones, and this will help you to save on electricity.

Changing small things can make a big difference – for example, washing clothes at 30 degrees rather than 40 can help save energy, as well as trying to reduce the loads of washing that you do.

Gas is something else that costs a lot, especially during the winter months as we all put the central heating on to keep warm. There are boilers that are more energy efficient that you could look into if you are wanting to replace your boiler, and putting in a Gas Meter Box like this meterbox.co.uk is also a great way to keep track of the gas that you are using.

When it comes to keeping warm there are things that you can do to save on the energy that you use – for example good insulation will trap the heat in your home so consider upgrading your double glazing or get some thermal curtains.
