How To Heat Your Home For Less This Winter
With the colder months upon us and more and more of us working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic, we’re starting to think about our increasing energy bills as we crank up the heating to stay warm this winter.
Here are some home heating hacks to help you save money on your energy bills this year:
1. Turn the heat down by one degree
The Energy Saving Trust suggests turning down the temperature on your thermostat by just one degree can save you around £80 per year.
We all have a comfort range (it’s usually between 18 to 21 degrees), so try keeping your heating to the lower end of the range. You’ll probably not notice the difference, but your wallet might.
2. Only heat the rooms you need
Heat your house room by room. It might be easier to turn the heating on in the whole house, but if you’re working from home then you’re probably sat in one place for most of the day, so you only really need to keep one place toasty.
3. Make the most of heat that’s already there
We generate lots of heat at home without even realising it—heat that usually goes to waste. A prime example of this is cooking. It might sound silly, but if you’ve been baking, leave the oven door open afterwards. It’s a simple way to warm up your kitchen, and the little financial savings add up over time.
