ENERGY
WANT TO CUT DOWN YOUR HOUSEHOLD
ENERGY COSTS - AND GO GREENER AS
WELL? HERE'S HOW TO DO IT...

WORDS: CATHERINE FRANCIS, IMAGES: SHUTTERSTOCK

A

utumn's arrived
and the dropping
temperatures and
shorter days mean
our heating and
lighting bills may
soar. However,
most of us spend
far more powering our homes than
we need to. There are lots of ways
to make your home more energye cient, cutting your bills by
hundreds of pounds a year - and
reducing your carbon footprint, too.

LET THERE BE LIGHT

ccording to the epartment for
Environment, ood and ural airs
(DEFRA), lighting your home
accounts for a fi h of your electricity
bill, but you can cut costs by choosing
di erent bulbs. he two main types
of energy e cient light bulbs are light
emitting diodes E s and compact
uorescent lamps
s , which can
produce the same brightness as a
standard bulb using less energy.
or each traditional bulb you
replace with an E bulb, you can
save
to
a year, which adds up
to quite a saving. There are energye cient bulbs for all kinds of fittings,
including spotlights, downlighters

and dimmable lights. It also helps to
get into the habit of turning lights o
when you leave a room.
If you have construction work done
on your home, choose large windows
and sky lights where possible to
increase natural light.

REPLACE YOUR
BOILER

our boiler accounts for
of your
energy bills. odern condensing
boilers are more e cient than older
models, and will reduce your heating
costs. eplacing an old rated boiler
with an rated one could save you
around
a year, according to the
Energy Saving Trust (EST), so will pay
for itself within a few years. Boilers
must be installed by a registered Gas
afe engineer gassaferegister.co.uk ,
who can help you choose the right one.
If you're not ready for a new boiler,
it's still important to keep yours
running well with an annual service.
his involves cleaning the working
parts, checking the seals and ue,
and inspecting for leaks, faults and
general wear and tear.
This will keep your boiler working
more e ciently and safely, and reduce
the risk of it breaking down, leading to
costly emergency repairs.
