There are a huge range of energy saving measures that you can put in place in the longer term (and we will be more than happy to talk you through them). However, team members at Eco-energi also believe in ‘quick wins’. Here are some simple energy saving tips used by the team in their own homes that you can try today.

Spend less time in the shower.
Just one minute less in the shower could save up to £8 per person every year. If you have a water efficient shower head fitted this saving increases further.
Turn the lights off.
Turn off the lights even if you only leave the room for a minute or two. (You will still save more than it costs to turn the light back on again).
Get to grips with your heating controls.
Put your heating and hot water onto a timer setting so that they are only on when you need them and only heat the rooms that you are using. If you have thermostatic radiator valves or room thermostats you can control individual room temperatures. You can save up to £188 per year this way.
Changing from halogen to LED lightbulbs will save you a potential £35 each year (although there will be an initial cost when replacing the bulbs).
Quick cup of tea?
Fill the kettle with only as much water as you need for your tea or coffee. The kettle will boil more quickly and save you about £7 each year. Even better, if you use a bowl for the washing up rather than filling the sink you could save a surprising £30 each year.
