Heating and Hot Water
More than half of our household heating bills goes on heating and hot water. Find out how you can lower your household heating costs on the Energy Saving Trust website.
The Energy Trust indicates that when it comes to choosing new electrical appliances, such as a fridge freezer, pick a size that realistically matches your needs and no bigger. Then look for the highest energy rating, A or above, that you can afford within your budget. When choosing entertainment appliances televisions tend to use more energy based mostly on their size. For example an A rated 22’’ TV would cost about £4 per year whereas as an A rated 60’’ TV would cost around £33 per year. Again it’s best to choose a television that matches the size of your room rather than just going for the biggest.
