Energy Saving Week is a national campaign to help and encourage people to save energy and cut fuel costs. The event is in partnership with Citizens Advice, the Energy Saving Trust and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. It is also supported by numerous organisations, charities and companies.
Sitting down and going through your bills may not sound very appealing. By dedicating just a few minutes each month exploring where you can save money will quickly show in your bank balance.
There are many ways to save money on your energy. Switching your supplier or tariff to get a better deal can make a big difference to your bills. Use the Citizens Advice energy price comparison tool to see if you can save money.
Small changes around the home will knock £££’s off your energy bills. Here are some figures for you:
- Switch lights off even if for just a few seconds when not in use, it will save more energy than it takes for the light to start up again. This will save you around £14 a year!
- Turn your appliances off standby mode and remember to not leave laptops and mobile phones on charge unnecessarily. This will save you £30 a year!
- Spend one minute less in the shower each day and a family of four could save £75 a year on energy and water bills!
If you have a wood burner in your home, try our fuel-saving device Firemizer. Once in place, Firemizer reduces the burn rate and spreads the heat evenly across your fire. This ensures all of the fuel is burnt thoroughly. You can then enjoy your perfect fire for longer and cut costs on firewood & coal.
Independent tests by the University of Cambridge, the University of Nottingham and Kiwa GASTEC at CRE in the UK, as well as OMNI-Test Laboratories Inc in the USA have all shown that using Firemizer can save you up to 38% on your fuel costs and can last up to 500 hours.
