Energy saving tips

 

From Smith and Byford, working together with Waltham Estate  RMO

  • Reduce your room thermostat temperature and switch off your central heating when you are not at home
  • Your boiler must, by law, be serviced annually. Smith and Byford will contact you to make an appointment
  • Keep curtains closed when it gets dark to prevent heat loss through windows
  • 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
  • Don't leave taps running - always remember to put the plug in so that water (hot or cold) is not wasted
  • 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
  • Drying clothes - try to dry your clothes outside, (or on airers) to maximise your heating efficiency and avoid damp problems
  • Expensive bills? - Investigate switching to a different energy tariff - By switching fuel suppliers you could save up to £493 a year, visit www.uswitch.com
