Change your energy provider
Even when gas costs are rising, it is still necessary to compare gas rates from several suppliers in order to find the best offer. So, if you're on a fixed tariff, make sure you transfer providers to prevent overpaying once the tariff expires.
Install a smart thermostat
Smart thermostats provide you with more control over your heating since you can programme when the heating and hot water will turn on and off. The most significant advantage of smart thermostats is that you can access the settings from your phone as long as you are connected to wifi or have mobile data.
Keep draughts at bay
Heat can escape through cracks in your doors, windows, or even flooring. Install draught excluders, insulating strips, and sealants to prevent heat from escaping via holes. This will help you save a significant amount of money on your overall energy expenditures.
Adding insulation to your home is the most effective strategy to save energy since it keeps your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Make sure the roof and walls are appropriately insulated to prevent heat loss.
Get financial assistance
