Using Energy Efficiently

By following the Utility Warehouse tips below, you could save even more money by reducing the amount of energy you use.

Insulation tips

  • A well insulated building is cheaper to heat.
  • Draught-proofing windows and doors is very cost effective.
  • Effective loft insulation: the minimum level of loft insulation is 270mm, but the more you have the more energy you will save.
  • Cavity wall insulation can reduce the amount of heat lost through your walls.

Water heating tips

  • Insulate your hot water cylinder and water pipes. Lagging jackets need to be at least 80mm (three inches) thick to be effective.

Lighting tips

  • Ensure lights are switched off in empty rooms, and adjust curtains and blinds to let in as much light as possible.
  • Replace light bulbs with low energy light bulbs.

Heating tips

  • Turn your thermostat down. Reducing your room temperature by 1 degree celsius could cut your heating bills by up to 10%.
  • Place foil behind radiators fitted onto outside walls.
