Energy-saving advice

We’ve compiled some quick and achievable changes you can make at home to help lower your bills - and reduce your carbon footprint, too.

Reducing your home energy use can seem like a lot to take on, especially if you’re already keeping a close eye on what you use. But it’s always worth seeing if there are any more changes you haven’t yet tried.

We hope these ideas below, and the savings calculated by Energy Saving Trust, are useful. But if you’re worried about paying your bill or topping up, please read our guide for customers who need extra support.
