Cutting down on gas, electricity and water consumption is a win-win – it makes environmental sense, and will save you money at the same time. So how can you do this? There are quite a few ways, including the easiest options of turning off appliances, lights and water when you’re not using them, as well as drying clothes outdoors rather than in a tumble drier.
Invest in some energy-efficient appliances and use a programmable thermostat to lower and raise the temperature when you’re away from home. It’s also a good idea to ensure your home is well insulated, so check for any areas where heat might escape like letterboxes, door frames and chimneys.
