Using Heat Wisely At Home

How To Use Heat Wisely At Home

  • Know your usage - read your meter or Home Display Unit regularly, this means you can keep up to date with how much energy you are using
  • Make sure your water heater thermostat is not set too high - even turning down the heat by 1 degree will save you money on your heat bill
  • Have a shower, not a hot bath
  • Don't block your radiators - for instance don't dry laundry on the radiators and don't obstruct them with furniture
  • Make sure to turn the heat off when you are not in your home
  • Seal off any unused room - turn down the thermostats in rooms that are not being used, for instance spare rooms, and place draught excluders below the doors
  • Learn to love socks - if your feet are cold your whole body will feel cold, so, especially in winter, start wearing socks
  • Close your curtains - make sure to close your curtains at night, this will help to reduce heat loss and keep cold air at bay
  • Mend dripping taps - a dripping tap can fill a bath in a day and if it is the hot water tap then water is being heated unnecessarily
