In support of the Big Energy Saving Week 2021, a national campaign to help people save money on their electricity bills, here are our four simple ways you can do just that.

Let the natural light flow in

With many of us currently working from home, now so more than ever it is important to pull back the curtains from our beautiful lounge windows or even our conservatory windows and let the natural light flow in. This simple, yet very effective, move not only allows more natural light to flow through the room, ultimately removing the need for us to turn on any lights, but it also helps with our mental health and mindset too, placing us in a much more positive and productive mood ready to start the day.

Invest in double glazing windows

You could even invest in triple glazing, which boasts a very impressive U-value of 0.8 W/m2k! Contact us and we’ll talk you through the benefits of double, and triple glazing windows.

Invest in dimmer switches

With more smart technologies, such as dimmer switches, being introduced it comes as no surprise that these lighting accessories will help you to reduce your electricity bills.

Although sometimes very expensive to buy, the modern dimmer switches allow you to have full control over the brightness of your lights. This means that if the lights are turned down low, the dimmer switch uses far less energy than it would if the lights were turned on full brightness. They look great and save money on your electricity bills. It’s a win-win, don’t you think?

Be water conscious

We’re all guilty of doing this, aren’t we?! We’ll perhaps boil a full kettle for only one mug of coffee, leave the tap on whilst we’re brushing our teeth, or have baths every day. I can hear you saying “yes, I do that”, but don’t worry – we’re guilty of it too.

So, the next time you pour water into your kettle, ask yourself how much water do you really need – are you putting the kettle on for one, two, three, or even four mugs of coffee? Put the proportionate amount of water in to suit your needs. Or turn the tap off when you’re brushing your teeth. We can assure you that you’ll soon notice a difference in your electricity bills.
