Energy saving tips

  1. Reduce your room thermostat temperature and switch off your central heating when you are not at home
  2. Your boiler must, by law, be serviced annually. Our gas contractor will contact you to make an appointment
  3. Keep curtains closed when it gets dark to prevent heat loss through windows
  4. Don't obstruct a radiators output, e.g. with long curtains or by drying washing over radiators as this will prevent heat circulation to the room and might also cause condensation
  5. Don't leave taps running - always remember to put the plug in so that water (hot or cold) is not wasted
  6. Adjust your heating - turning the heating down by just one degree on the thermostat can save up to 10 per cent on your annual bill
  7. Drying clothes - try to dry your clothes outside, (or on airers) to maximise your heating efficiency and avoid damp problems
