It’s not difficult to save money on energy bills.
In fact it takes a few simple tweaks, and often times you don’t even have to be involved!
Energy companies have a way of pulling the rug from underneath you from time to time. One sunny afternoon when everything is going well, you receive a sky high energy bill out of the blue and you don’t know what to do!
And once you’ve gone back and forth with your energy provider’s customer service over the phone and solved nothing, your next thought will be “How can I make sure this never happens again?” Or “How can I save money on energy bills?”
Which is precisely why we’ve compiled this guide to help you not only save your hard earned money on energy bills, but also reduce your carbon footprint and be kinder to the planet.
Our aim, as heating engineers is to not only guide you to buy the best boilers or new central heating systems, but also save money on energy bills.
Let’s take a look at some of the best ways you can save money on energy bills over the long term:
1. Replace Your Older Non-Condensing Boiler
Potential savings: Up to £500 per year
According to the Energy Saving Trust, heating accounts for 55% of your energy bills. So, when you switch to a modern A-rated condensing boiler with a programmable thermostat and weather compensation or an internet enabled learning thermostat like Nest, you can easily save up to £600 a year on your energy bills, no matter the size of your house.
If your existing boiler is older than 12-15 years, there’s high probability it’s a G-rated, non condensing boiler with no programmable thermostats.
