Boiler Efficiency: The energy efficiency of any boiler installation is of major importance. An inefficient boiler can contribute to large utility bills, creating an unnecessary expense while being able to meet the hot water needs of you and your family. Boiler specialists can help you identify the most efficient type of boiler for your home, helping you save money in the long run by minimising monthly energy bills.

The best way to reduce your household gas bill and save money is by understanding how to reduce your energy usage. Take a look below at some simple and effective ways you can save energy and save money!

Hot Water

Regardless of the type of hot water heater you have, everyone can save energy and water by following these tips:

  • Taking shorter showers.
  • Installing a water saving shower head can reduce the water used from 22L per minute to just 9L per minute. Less water used means less gas to heat the water.
  • Immediately repair dripping hot water taps.
  • When doing the dishes, fill the sink with just the water you need instead of leaving hot taps running.
  • Ensure that the temperature on your hot water storage tank is set at 60 degrees Celsius. Higher than this will use gas unnecessarily, but lower may allow bacteria to thrive. The temperature on an instantaneous system should be no more than 50 degrees Celsius.
  • If you have a hot water storage tank system, turn it off when you go on holiday.
  • Make sure you have your system serviced every year.

Heating

You may not realise, but you can save money on your heating costs by:

  • Lowering the temperature on the thermostat, a couple of degrees will make all the difference. Did you know that reducing your thermostat by just 1% you can save up to 10% on your heating bills.
  • In winter buy some thicker curtains. These will help keep the heat in, limiting the amount of time the heating needs to be on for.
  • Thicker duvets and blankets on your bed will also limit the need for heating.
  • Consider putting the heating on a timer so it automatically switches off. It can be easy to leave the heating on and forget about it using more gas than required.

Washing Machine

Some washing machines use hot water via a hot water inlet, whereas others take in cold water and heat it within the washing machine.

Washing your clothes on a cold water cycle will generally save energy. If your washing machine takes in hot water it will save on power. If your washing machine takes in cold water and heats within, it will save gas.

Clever fact: Washing in cold water will effectively clean clothes and remove stains. Consider using warmer water only for heavily soiled clothes or bedclothes.
