Here is an overlooked fact: reducing your thermostat temperature by 1oC can save you as much as £60 per year! Constantly keeping your heating system on instead of putting it on and off for heat saves you even more money, so get to understand your timer settings on the thermostat. In winter, set your average settings on your thermostat to about 18-20oC, because every degree above 20oC adds 10% to your energy bill. In summer, you can set the thermostat to 26oC or above.

During winter and fall months, your house can get cold, forcing you to turn up your heater. The more hours and days, you turn it up, the higher your energy bill – but you cannot live without the heat. During other days, most consumption is due to things like the refrigerator and microwave, but you really cannot eliminate these items from your home.
