Saving money with your Economy 7 meter this winter

You probably know this already but your Economy 7 meter means your night rate is cheaper than your day rate. This is mainly intended for people with storage heaters because storage heaters draw the electricity in the evening or night time and then release their heat in the day when it is needed – very handy if you do have storage heaters this winter!

It’s Christmas and the children are off school. They’ve sat around for hours using their iPads and phones, you’ve had an office day from home using your laptop and now all your devices need charging. In order to be energy efficient with your Economy 7 meter, charge as many gadgets as possible during the night time!

If you really must use the tumble dryer then you’re going to want to use it during the cheaper hours, fire brigades advise not to set tumble dryers to come on while you’re getting your beauty sleep so why not set it to come on at around 5 or 6am when you’re due to wake up?

Similarly to your tumble dryer, run your larger appliances overnight. It is safe to put the washing machine and dishwasher on overnight while you’re sleeping, so why not set it on a timer for the cycle to run overnight?
