Before you start,you need to understand your energy bill. The information on a typical energy bill can be confusing, but understanding it can go a long way to helping you get to grips with your energy use at home.

1.Switch off standby

You can save around £55 (£45 in Northern Ireland) a year just by remembering to turn your appliances off standby mode. Almost all electrical appliances can be turned off at the plug without upsetting their programming. 

2. Draught-proof windows and doors

Unless your home is new, you will lose some heat through draughts around doors and windows, gaps in the floorboards, or through the chimney.  Insulate these areas in your home. 

3. Turn off lights
