Different Ways To Use Less Electricity In The Home

 

  • Use ceiling fans instead of air conditioning or AC – probably¬† a good tip for the UK where it’s rarely warm enough to need AC, but if you do have it, AC uses a huge amount more electricity than simple fans!
  • Replace leaky windows – Make sure you have at least double glazed windows (you can even get triple glazed now!) to save heat in winter and keep cooler in summer
  • Insulate walls and attics – cavity wall insulation is a great idea for all homes, and the thickest attic insulation will prevent your home from losing heat
  • Check the energy rating of your appliances – all appliances for the home are rated in stars now, so check your appliances are A* rated for the best efficiency!¬† Important for those you use regularly like cookers, dishwashers and washing machines.
