be energy wise

Other ways you can also save on your energy consumption;

  • Kettle – Don’t boil a full kettle every time, only boil the amount you need.
  • Oven – Try not to open the oven door while cooking if possible. Heat lost by opening the door causes the oven to use more energy.
  • Fridges & Freezers – Defrost these appliances regularly, this helps them to run more efficiently. Bear in mind that some fridges and freezers self defrost.
  • Shower/Bath – Use the shower rather than the bath whenever possible – it uses considerably less energy. Also, as showers and baths account for most of a household’s hot-water use, cutting showers from 20 minutes to 10 minutes could slash water-heating costs by 25%.
