Top Ten Painless Ways
to save energy, money, tackle Climate Change
and reduce your Carbon Footprint




ΠInstall low energy lightbulbs
They last between 6 and 10 years and use 80% less energy.

 Reduce your heating by 1˚C
A comfortable living room temperature is 21˚C and 16-18˚C for bedrooms. Reduce temperatures in any unused rooms to a minimum. Should save you 10% annually.


Ž Wash your laundry at 30˚C
Most clothes can be successfully washed at 30˚C. Cuts electricity costs by up to 40% against washing at higher temperatures.

 Turn off all electrical gadgets
Save money and energy by not leaving TV's, computers, games consoles, mobile phone chargers etc. on standby. Turn them off.

 Turn off lights
How many of us leave lights on in unattended rooms especially if we have not taught our children to be energy conscious. Lead by example. Leave a room, turn off the light.

z Boil what you need
Avoid unnecessary costs, by boiling only the amount of water you need in your kettle. Jug kettles tend to be more efficient too.

{ Drive efficiently
Reduce emissions, save fuel by eco-driving. Drive smoothly, remove roof racks when not needed, ensure tyre pressures are correct, remove unwanted loads, stay within speed limits, idling and over revving also wastes fuel.

| Energy efficient appliances
Use A rated kitchen appliances. Watch out for them next time you decide to replace an appliance. This is a great way to cut your electricity bill and make a difference to the environment.

} Draught dodgers
Draft-proof your home to make significant energy savings. Fill gaps in floorboards and skirting boards with newspaper or sealants. Fix draughts from doors, windows, letterboxes, keyholes etc.

~ Have you thought of these
Turn off lights when you leave a room, fill up your washing machine, close curtains at dusk, fix dripping taps, recycle, recycle, recycle. Each of these will make a difference to your pocket and the environment.
