For small pans or small meals, use the small rings to heat your food. If you decide to use the larger rings or a larger pan to heat small meals, you will be wasting a lot of energy. In addition, if you heat a larger pan with a smaller ring, you easily heat up things for longer instead of saving money or energy.

Efficiency with your home

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.

9.Take advantage of free loft insulation

When hot air in your house rises, as much as 25% of the heat ends up being lost in your loft space. Older buildings that have insulation in them may fare even worse because they lack the recommended levels. Loft insulations can save you up to 19% on your energy bill.
