Energy Saving

Whether you’re a domestic or commercial customer, there are numerous ways you can help to save energy every single day of the week. Here’s how!

For home owners:

  • In the majority of UK households more than half the money spent on fuel bills goes towards providing both heating and hot water so it’s important to understand what you’re using – and how!

  • If you have a central heating system then you should ensure that your boiler only provides heat when you need it – and always be sure to have the most efficient model possible. You’d be surprised at what a difference it makes!

  • If you use electric storage heating then be sure to fit thermostats to make your existing more energy efficient or, better still, replace your system with an efficient boiler system.

  • If you rely on secondary heating, such as portable heaters or fixed gas fires, be sure to use them only when required. This type of electricity usage is not only expensive but is also carbon-intensive.

  • Make sure you understand energy ratings on appliances such as your fridge freezer. For example, an A rated 180 litre fridge freezer could cost around £39 a year to run, whereas a much larger 525 litre version with a better A+ rating could cost £52.

For business owners:

  • Avoid the temptation to leave appliances on standby – particularly computers and photocopiers. Instead, ask staff to “log off and turn off” at the end of each day.

  • Always use top rated energy efficient products

  • Keep a close eye on your heating – even turning the thermostat by just 1 degree can reduce your annual heating bill by up to 10%

  • Use the most energy efficient lightbulbs available – for example, if you have fluorescent tube lighting, replacing T12 tubes with T8s will reduce the lighting energy demand by around 10%. Also remind staff to switch lights off in rooms or corridors that aren’t in use.

Steven Knowles was very professional, very polite and happy to help and talk through best installation points. Steven worked hard to make the install look as best as possible and have lots of information about the product. He arrived early and cleaned up all his mess. I was very pleased with the install and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Excellent customer service. Unfortunately even after gaining comparability confirmation from Nest it does not work properly.
