With high energy prices and increasing living costs, it can sometimes be difficult keeping your energy bills low. Saving energy on heating bills might sound like a lot of work, but it can be really easy and save you hundreds over time. Although there’s a lot of debate, experts have revealed that leaving the heating on all day isn’t actually cheaper.

In Fact only using the heating when you need it is better for your bank overall, as you’re saving energy on your heating bills.
If there is a guest room or storage room you don’t spend much time in, save money by not heating it. Turn the radiators off and close the doors, especially in Winter. This can cut your bill by as much as a third, depending on how many rooms you’re not using.
Turning your thermostat down by just 1°C can save you as much as £80 per year! Upgrading to a highly rated boiler can improve your home’s energy efficiency.
