10 ways to save energy, money, and help prevent climate change

1 Turn your thermostat down. Reducing your room temperature by 1°C could cut your heating bills by up to 10 percent.
2 Is your water too hot? Your cylinder thermostat shouldn't need to be set higher than 60°C/140°F
3 Close your curtains at dusk to stop heat escaping through the windows.  
4 Always turn off the lights when you leave a room.
5 Don't leave appliances on standby and remember not to leave appliances on charge unnecessarily.
If you're not filling up the washing machine, tumble dryer or dishwasher, use the half-load or economy programme.
7 Only boil as much water as you need (but remember to cover the elements if you're using an electric kettle).
8 A dripping hot water tap wastes energy and in one week wastes enough hot water to fill half a bath, so fix leaking taps and make sure they're fully turned off!
9 Use energy saving light bulbs.They are 12 times longer than ordinary lightbulbs.
10 Do a home energy check.
