Check­list for re­duc­ing bills

Your ther­mo­stat needn’t be higher than 60 de­grees C. Any higher and you will only be mix­ing it with cold wa­ter to cool it back down

Buy a new in­su­la­tion jacket for your tank – around £12. It should be three inches thick and will save around £35 per year

An ef­fi­cient room ther­mo­stat and ther­mo­static ra­di­a­tor valves can re­duce the energy your boiler con­sumes by up to 40%

Lower the cen­tral heat­ing ther­mo­stat by one de­gree. You won’t no­tice the dif­fer­ence but the re­duc­tion can shave £55 from an an­nual bill

Set pro­gram­mers so heat­ing only comes on when needed. Don’t heat an empty house

Get your boiler ser­viced so a break­down is less likely

Re­place an old boiler with a new one and you could re­duce your energy con­sump­tion by a third and save up to £570 per year on your gas bill
