With household bills seeming to go up each year, it’s easy to see why you’d want to make savings where you can. Luckily, there are some simple steps you can take to cut your energy usage and in turn save money on your bills.
An article for Open Access Government recently made some suggestions on how to go about this. Some of the measures suggested, such as getting double glazed windows in Liverpool or wherever you live, can have a relatively high up-front cost, but they are more than worth it in the long run.
In fact, the news provider suggested that by upgrading to double glazing from single glazing, you could save hundreds of pounds on your energy bills each year.
This is largely because double glazing is much better at retaining heat than single glazed panes, which means you could dial down your heating and reduce how much you’re spending on warming up your property in the colder months of the year.
Other top tips for reducing energy usage include swapping your light bulbs for LED bulbs, and turning off any appliances you keep on standby.
Making sure you don’t overfill your washing machine is another good piece of advice, as well as washing your clothes at 30 degrees instead of 40 degrees to make further savings.
Research published recently found that one of the most cost-effective energy saving measures you can take, however, is to replace an old boiler with a new model.
Getting a new boiler and central heating system were found to be the most profitable projects to undertake, according to a survey by GoCompare home insurance.
