  136. Have loads of tips, all work and cost nothing or very little, here we go. Shut doors, check if you got draught excluders on internal doors, if you got one, turn the radiator control knob on boiler down a few degrees, If you have individual controls on each radiator, turn to zero in rooms you don’t use. If you got a newer fridge, freezer with lots of controls, and you don’t go in there much then put the controls to ‘holiday’ mode. Don’t use a tumble dryer, just do a final spin again on washing machine and hang clothes out on clothes horses, why not the Queen ain’t going to visit. On that note, plan your washing so you don’t need that top that day so you can slow dry. We have confirmed doing just these we have saved £45 on our gas and electric this quarter just gone (Oct-Jan) with the same last year. We very impressed.

  270. As energy price rise every single year with out fail,we come up with new ways as a whole family, on ways we can save on energy bills, one of the best ones we have found is, if you can be out of the house for aslong as possible it really does save you money, and helps keep the whole family fit at the same time, the obvious ones like switching lights off, or anything your not using at the time, we always do, never leave anything on standby as this takes electricity, in the winter months, we try to just heat the one room we are in at the time, but by being in the great out doors, really does save money, even if its just for a walk, it cost nothing to go out for a walk, good-luck everyone
