Tune your heating timer

If you use a heating timer, try starting it half an hour later in the mornings and turning it off half an hour earlier. See if you notice a difference. If not to, try another half hour, or a quarter of an hour. The same in the evenings…. you don’t need it on all the way to bed time because your nicely warmed house will hold its heat for a good while after the heating goes off. If you can shave off 2 hours a day that’s 60 hours a month or roughly 360 hours over a winter. Equivalent to more than a fortnight of constant heating! Why would you heat your house for a fortnight if you don’t need it?

Honing your heating set up is one of the easiest ways to reduce wasted money and energy because heating is one of the biggest energy costs in a home. Why not give yourself a month to experiment and try new ways of doing things? A bit of time spent thinking things through now and trying things out could save you money, and cut your carbon emissions for years to come.
