5 Ways to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient

Here are 5 low cost changes you can make to be greener at home this year:

1) . Lower Your Thermostat

Lower the temperature on your thermostat whilst you’re away from home. Dropping the temperature by as little as 3 – 5 degrees will reduce your monthly utility bill and use less energy.

2) . Start a Compost Pile

You don’t need a big garden in order to start a compost pile. Compost is the result of organic waste that’s been kept in a pile or container over time. Your fruit and vegetable waste will not only become a great fertiliser for your lawn, but it will reduce the amount of rubbish you produce on a daily basis.

3) . Seal All Windows

Go the extra mile by sealing the air leaks in and around the windows in your home. Sealing these gaps and cracks is an easy way to lower energy cost cheaply.

4) . Turn off unnecessary water

The average homeowner can save about £150 a year with small changes to their water usage. Don’t leave your tap running while brushing teeth or whilst shaving. Make sure you load your washing machine and dish washer as much as you can before turning it on.

5) . Replace Incandescent Bulbs

Halogen bulbs, compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFLs) and light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs offer longer lasting light and are more energy-efficient than your old incandescent bulbs. Switching over to greener bulbs is a great way to save on your electrical bill.
