The cost of heating and hot water make up half of the average household energy bill…
This obviously adds up to a lot of money over the year, although there is no way of avoiding this cost there are many ways to reduce it.

Your parents were right… Putting on an extra layer of clothes around the house or using another blanket at night is a cheaper alternative to cranking the heating up!
Stay warm, cut costs
When turning your heating on, reducing the temperature by just 1°C could save you up to £75 a year!
Keep the pressure down
Power showers with high pressure heads are a luxury – but you would be surprised at just how much water they use, sometimes more than a bath! Using a low pressure setting could save you up to £70 per year.
Shrink your bills not your clothes!
Doing your washing on a lower heat setting such as 30°C – 40°C will save significant amounts of money.
Invest in a smart thermostat
Installing a thermostat can make you much more efficient and aware of how much/how long you are heating your home.
You could be wasting a lot of money by not having your home properly insulated. Almost 25% of heat in an uninsulated home is lost through the roof! You could save £175 a year by investing in decent insulation, this will also drastically reduce CO2 emissions!
These are all small changes you can make in your home but the money you will save all adds up!
