How to save money on utility bills

Money saved is money earned. According to Ofgem, the average household can save £300 per year by switching gas and electricity supplier. Are you wasting cash on your utility bills? It doesn’t take long to check, and it could save you up to £300 a year. You could save even more by managing your gas and electricity more efficiently. Imagine having more cash to invest or put towards your holiday. Wouldn’t that be nice? Here is how.

Switch supplier

Start by saving hundreds of pounds by switching supplier. As long as you pay for your own gas and electricity you should be able to switch, so it doesn’t matter if you rent or own your home. To switch is easy, all you need is a) a recent bill with your annual energy statement and b) your bank details.

What to look for when switching,

Look for Simplicity
One online account, one phone number to a UK Call centre with one password. Bundling all your home services on one monthly bill is a great way to start.

Look for value
Does your provider offer more ways for you to save more with benefits such as cashback, money off days out, cinema etc, and/or referrals and a business opportunity? Never forget to look for extras!

Look for quality
Does your current provider actually care? A UK-based Customer Service can make a huge difference. Also, Which? Recommended Provider should be a must so don’t forget to look for service awards.

Make your home more eco-friendly

Use energy LED light bulbs
They last up to 10 times longer than ordinary bulbs and don’t cost much more. Using one can save you around £55 over the lifetime of the bulb. Fancy FREE LED bulbs supplied and fitted to your home, then we can recommend a provider to you?

Turn down your thermostat
Reduce it by 1°C and cut 10% off your heating bill, saving around £75 per year.

Only boil the water that you need
Making a cup of tea? Just boil enough for a cup of tea.

Don’t use a pre-paid meter

The main benefit of prepayment meters is that it helps you not to spend more than you’re willing to, but it’s also one of the most expensive ways of buying energy. Not good!
