Pursuing domestic energy efficiency is the best way to tackle price rises from energy suppliers and consistently save on energy bills, reports the Independent.
Home Heat Helpline says that homeowners could save ten per cent on their energy bills by simply turning down the thermostat by 1C, while nearly £80 can potentially be saved by installing a single energy-efficient light bulb. Additional small things such as ensuring furniture is not positioned too close to radiators, using economical washing machine cycles and turning off lights that are not being used, will also help access cheap energy.
Harriet Kingaby, of the Energy Saving Trust, told the paper: "The easiest and cheapest thing to do is to make sure the heating controls fitted in your home are correctly set."
With energy-efficiency and global warming having dominated headlines for a number of years, the market has also seen a proliferation of relatively cheap products designed to cut energy use, from solar chargers to remotely activated standby plugs.
