There are plenty of ways you can save money on your energy bill during winter and the good news? Many of these fixes can be done right now and won’t cost you a cent:
Rug up with warm layers of clothes
Ditch the electric blanket in favour of a hot water bottle or extra blanket
Dial down the thermostat on your heater to around 18-20 degrees Celsius
If your heater is zoned, only heat the rooms you are using
Close doors to all other rooms to help contain the heat
Sounds obvious, but keep external doors and windows closed against the cold
Don’t be tempted by long, hot showers
On sunny days, open the curtains to catch those winter rays
Once it starts to get dark – and on cold, cloudy days – draw the curtains to keep any warmth inside
