How energy-efficient is your house?
Your energy usage is at its lowest while you’re at work, but what happens when you and the gang are all stuck at home together? Even if there are just two of you under your roof, your energy consumption is going to be higher than normal, but there are various measures you can take to soften the blow.
Try your best to get into a simple habitual routine of making sure the rooms that aren’t in use don’t have lights or radiators on - what’s the point of lighting or heating a room that isn’t occupied? Or why have the lights on at all? With the hotter, sunnier weather starting to come in, open your blinds and curtains and let the natural light stream through to light up your home.
It’s uncertain for how much longer we’ll be in our own homes, so ensure you remain vigilant and avoid becoming careless, which can be so easily done when you’re not used to doing so. Follow the sensible habits of our frugal home-dwellers above to maintain optimum energy efficiency and keep your energy bills down to a minimum.
While you're keeping your house energy-efficient, you could also be taking a look at your energy supplier. Compare energy deals to find the best prices right now and start saving on your annual bill.
