Energy Savers Week 2024

Are you looking for low-cost ways to make your home warmer this winter?

We’ve teamed up with Energy Saving Trust this Energy Savers Week (15 - 21 January) to bring you the top tips you need to know to save both energy and money on your heating.

Throughout the week we’ll be sharing five winter warmer tips to help you stay warm and save energy. 

Discover how you can use these low-cost energy efficiency tips around your home, and how much money they could save you. 

Five winter warmer tips

1. Turn down your thermostat by 1°C and save around £105 a year on energy bills.

  • But to keep comfortable and stay safe we recommend staying above 18°C.

2. Switch your heating off when leaving the house for a few hours.

  • It’s cheaper to reheat your home than keep your heating on low when you’re out, unless you own a heat pump.

3. Fit draught-proofing strips to your windows and doors and save around £45 a year.

  • This can be a quick DIY job. Keeping extra heat in your home will leave you feeling warmer and more comfortable.

4. Get a hot water cylinder jacket and save roughly £50 a year on energy bills.

  • Jackets are easy to fit, typically cost under £30, and you’ll also spend less on a hot shower or bath in the future.

5. Keep furniture away from radiators and heaters to feel warmer at home.

  • Don’t overwork your system by blocking your source of heat and remember to remove radiator covers to get more value for money.
