Switch energy providers
Even with the cost of gas prices increasing, it is still work comparing gas prices across various suppliers so you can get the best deal. So, if you are on a fixed tariff, make sure to avoid overpaying after the tariff runs out by switching providers.
Install a smart thermostat
Smart thermostats give you better control over your heating because you will be able to schedule when the heating and hot water can turn on an off. The greatest advantage of smart thermostats is that you are able to access the settings from your phone, as long as you are connected to wifi or have mobile data.
Having gaps in your doors, windows, or even floors could cause heat to escape. To stop heat from escaping through the gaps, make sure to install draught excludes, insulating strips and sealants. This will help you save lots on your overall energy bills.
Adding insulation in your homes is the most efficient way to save energy, this is becuase it helps keep your home warm during the winter and cool during the summer. Ensure the roof and walls are properly insulated to prevent heat from getting lost.
