Water

  • A water-saving shower head reduces your water consumption

  • Time your shower - try to keep it under 5 minutes

  • Fix drips - changing washers could save hundreds of litres lost a year

  • A water saver in your toilet cistern reduces water being flushed

  • Upgrade your toilet to a dual flush system

  • Check your meter - only pay for the water you are using 

  • Make sure your hot water thermostat isn't set too high

  • Check the efficiency rating before buying any appliance that uses water

  • Check your property for overflowing toilets and water tanks 

  • Have your plumbing checked over for leaking underground pipes

 

Heating & Insulation

  • Annual boiler servicing ensure its safe and efficient operation

  • A thermostat will enable you to regulate the temperature

  • A smart thermostat enables you to control your heating from your phone

  • Time your thermostat – use heating when you need it, not continuously

  • Don't have your system turned up unnecessarily high

  • If your boiler is 10-15 years old consider investing in a new, efficient model

  • Thermostatic radiator valves let you control the temperature in each room

  • If you have an immersion heater, have a timer fitted to the hot water tank

  • Insulating your roof space is a simple way to reduce heat loss

  • Lagging hot water cylinders and pipes reduces heat loss

  • Cavity wall insulation is another great way to reduce heat loss

  • Double glazed windows and doors effectively reduce heat loss

Pensioners are entitled to financial support from the government to assist with insulating their homes.

 

Making Payment

  • Make sure you are clear on payment terms before work starts

  • Avoid companies that only accept cash payment

  • Don't use companies who are not prepared to give you an invoice for your work

  • Don't use a company if their workers offer to do work privately at a lower price
