When it comes to saving money, everyone wants in on the secret, and here at Heath Windows we’ll share with you a few tips on how to reduce the cost of your household bills. And no, we’re not going to tell you to convert to the Amish faith. Take a look to see how you can lower your bills.
Switch off Electrical Devices at the Wall
It may be tempting to leave the phone charger by your bedside plugged in. You can charge your phone in an instant, without having to faff around with turning the plug on (or making the mistake of thinking your phone is charging when it’s not even on at the wall – guilty!). However, you’d be surprised by how much a small amount of electricity can add up over time.
Be sure to turn off every single appliance at the plug after you’ve finished using it and you’ll no doubt see a drastic change in your lekkie bills. Consider all your appliances and devices, not just the obvious ones, and get into a habit of turning them off when not in use. It’ll soon become second nature, particularly after you’ve seen a drop in your bills!
Switch to the Cheapest Provider
Talking of electricity, have you considered changing your energy provider? You may already be on the cheapest tariff available, however it’s always worth a look, just in case. Whilst it may seem like hassle to switch provider, it’s worth every penny, literally!
The average customer can save more than £250 over the course of a year by switching energy companies; just think about how much you could save over a decade! So, use a comparison site and discover which tariff is the cheapest option for you to potentially save plenty of pounds!
Make a Shopping List
This may seem old fashioned, but you don’t have to write it on a piece of paper! Use your smartphone and create a list using one of the many apps available.
A list will ensure that you buy only what you need, rather than you buying anything and everything that tickles your fancy, which let’s face it, is always tempting. Make a meal plan for the week, write a list and stick to it! Not only will you save money, you’ll eliminate waste too!
Install Energy Efficient Windows
