Best Energy Saving Tips

Energy-saving methods are better for the environment and your hip pocket. Everyone wants to save money on their utility bills and the way to do that is to use the best energy saving tips in your home on a regular basis.

Thankfully, we know everything you need to know about saving energy and money and we’ve put it all in one handy list for you to read below.

Shut Doors and Close Curtains According to the Weather

If it’s going to be a warmer day then get your doors and curtains closed early in the morning. Windows can lose a lot of heat in the winter time and bring in a strong amount of heat from the sun in summer. Save money on your energy bills by keeping doors and curtains closed.

Rug up or Strip Down

Dressing for the weather will mean you’re less likely to use your heater or air conditioner until you really need it. Rug up in your warmest pyjamas and a blanket or make sure you’re in some comfortable shorts. Whatever the weather, make sure you’re dressed for it so you can save money on your energy usage.

Install Solar Panels

Installing solar panels can be a fantastic investment and save you a huge amount of money off your energy bills over time, while making your contribution to a healthier environment.

Check Your Home Is Adequately Insulated

Even the slightest gap in your home can bring in drafts that make it too hot in summer or too cold in winter. Ensure your home is sealed in all areas and fill any gaps between windows or external doors. Consider upgrading your wall or roof insulation to further reduce your energy bills.

Don’t Turn Your Heaters or Air Conditioners On and Off

While it might seem like a good idea to turn your heater or cooler off when they’re not needed, be careful not to turn them off, only to realise that you need them on again a couple of hours later. This can often use more energy than simply keeping them on at an appropriate temperature.

Turn Off the Lights

It sounds simple but turning off the lights can be really easy to forget. Turning off the lights not only saves you energy but lights can radiate heat, making you crank up your cooling system unnecessarily. Make it a conscious habit for you and anyone in your family to turn off a light when leaving the room.
