The days may be getting shorter but that doesn’t mean the charges on your energy bill need to get higher. With a few clever tips, you can reduce the amount of energy you use which is not only better or your wallet but better for the planet too.
One of the easiest ways to save energy and money throughout your home is through the transition to smart lights and motion sensors. These devices connect through your WiFi and give you complete control over your lighting in every room. Setting motion sensors around your home will turn lights on automatically when you walk into a room or area and turn them off when you are no longer using that area. These solutions also allow you to control your lighting when you are not home, set up light schedules, and set the mood with different lighting effects.
You might have energy-efficient appliances, but if they need cleaning they may not be working as efficiently as you might think. Tumble dryers, dishwashers and refrigerators will all work much better after a good clean. Most tumble dryers and dishwashers have removable filters that can be cleaned of all debris. When cleaning your refrigerator, make sure that any filters or ducts are clear of food debris or liquids. <
A poorly insulated home will mean you are always reaching for the thermostat and turning it up. In fact, if your windows and doors are letting draughts in, you could be spending 10-25% more on your heating bills.

From a new entrance door to energy efficient aluminium windows, upgrading these areas of your home could be the best thing you do to improve your home this year.
