How do I save on my energy usage?

Simple changes can help cut down on your average energy usage. This can include using energy efficient appliances, switching to energy-saver lightbulbs, and switching unused devices off.

Here are some of our top tips that will help you save energy in your business

  • Turn appliances off at the plug
  • Turning your heating down
  • When they need replacing, switch to higher energy-efficiency rated appliances
  • You could save energy by upgrading your old boiler to a new A-rated condensing boiler with a room and radiator controlled thermostat.
