Cut Your Energy Costs Day

Learn about Cut your Energy Costs Day

 

Winter is here and you’re probably thinking about your energy usage and how expensive this time of year is.  Cut your Energy Costs Day is your opportunity to look at the energy usage in your home, office etc. Finding ways to reduce how much energy you use will help you all year round, not just for the winter months.

Heating costs have been an issue with customers for a long time (energy bills are one of the most expensive costs that we pay for our home throughout the year).  With Cut your Energy Costs Day, we advise to take the plunge to assess your home and consider things that may be costing you (those appliances you left on standby) and that may have been forgotten about.

Ways to save on this day and going forwards are thinking about appliances that may help you in the long term, things like a programmable thermostat which makes it easy to not only turn on your heating but also just as easy to turn it off if you have had to leave in a rush, or gone to bed and left the heating on.  Items like this will also enable you to set the time and days that the temperature should be adjusted, leaving you with the perfect temperature without wasting any money.  Many thermostats already have this option, but many are not aware – look at yours today and see if you are able to programme your week.

The next thing to do is have an overview of your appliances.  Old and inefficient appliances are not energy efficient and could be costing you more than they are worth.  Look at any of the appliances that have been in your home for a long time and access if it would be cost efficient to purchases a newer, more energy efficient version.  Appliances now usually have an energy efficiency chart on them at the time of purchase, if you are unsure, make sure you ask the seller.  The higher the rating (A+ being the best) the more energy efficient your appliance is.

Cut your Energy Costs Day is all about reviewing and accessing your current situation and finding out what could benefit yourself regarding lowering energy usage.  For more information on any energy usage and how to lower your energy consumption, please contact us on 0330 0414 902 or customerservice@nabuhenergy.co.uk
