Big Energy Saving Week: Water

This week is Big Energy Saving Week which is a campaign run by Citizens Advice and aims to raise awareness about the ways that people could be saving on their energy bills.

Big Energy Saving Week

Many people don’t realise that their water bill makes up a large part of their overall energy bill. Here are some simple ways that you could save on your energy bills:

  • It takes more energy to heat warm water. Try to avoid wasting water by running a tap and waiting for the water to heat up. Try to always use cold if you don’t need hot.
  • Make sure dishwashers and washing machines are full before you use them. Check your settings to see if they are the most efficient and energy saving.
  • More energy is wasted when clothes are washed on a high temperature setting. Washing your clothes at 30-40 degrees can save you a lot of money.
  • If the weather is dry and windy try to dry your clothes naturally. This can save you money and energy on tumble drying.
