The weather is getting colder, the nights are getting
longer. While winter is something that comes every year the increase in bills
is something we can all try and do something about and here are 5 top tips to
try and get you on the right track of saving money this winter.
Turn
Off When Not in Use.
It can be so easy to move from room to room and leave the lights switched
on, but with each light left on you are wasting pennies on your electric bill
and you know what pennies add up to?! Pounds. Of course, it isn’t just lights
this can be applied to, making sure you switch off unused appliances, instead
of leaving them on standby can also make a difference.
Put on
Layers.

Hands up who sits in their home in a t-shirt, with the heating on to make it
warm enough to do so. Well why not put on a jumper, or wrap up in a blanket,
you never know how long you might be able to without turning it on then.

Turn it
Down.
When it finally does come time to turn the heating on, think about turning it
on at one degree lower than you normally would. You may find you don’t notice
the difference, while that one degree in the long run can make a difference to
your total bill.
Switch
Energy Providers.

When was the last time you checked if you were getting the best deal possible
on your energy? If the answer isn’t “not too long ago”, it is time to run a
check and see if you can get a better deal elsewhere.

Foil
Your Radiators.

Popping a sheet of foil between your radiator and the wall will help reflect
the heat back into the room. This can be DIY’d with cardboard and foil, or you
can buy specialist radiator foil. Making sure that there is still a gap between
radiator and foil to ensure that air can circulate. Whichever way you do it
though it should help keep you a little warmer.

So there are 5 top
tips for saving money this winter, what do you think of them, am I missing
anything really important?
