ARE FAM­I­LIES GUILTY OF WAST­ING EX­PEN­SIVE EN­ERGY?

Daily Express - - LETTERS - Derby

WHEN Mor­ris­sey and Johnny Marr wrote There Is A Light That Never Goes Out they could have been talk­ing about my house (“How brew can be a big waste”, Oc­to­ber 16).

I seem to spend my life walk­ing around, switch­ing off lights left on by our kids in rooms they haven’t set foot in for hours.

Charg­ing phones that have been on 100 per cent for hours, and the TV left blar­ing to our dog and the cats are two of my other bug­bears.

When our kids grow up, move out and pay bills they’ll feel my pain. Bryan Kent, Manchester

AS a fam­ily we do all we can not to waste en­ergy. We only run our cen­tral heat­ing for an hour be­fore we get up and an hour be­fore the kids get back from school.

We got our house in­su­lated and had new dou­ble glaz­ing fit­ted when we moved in five years ago and our in­vest­ment is re­ally start­ing to pay off.

Maybe I’m a bit stingy but if any­one moans that it’s a bit chilly I tell them to put a jumper on.

It’s a point of prin­ci­ple but I never switch on the cen­tral heat­ing un­til the clocks go back.
