Pali's top tips to reduce your energy bills

Posted: 07/08/2012


We have recently had a new energy monitor installed in the Pali office which inspired us to share our top tips on how to save money on your energy bills. You will be surprised how much money you can save by making small changes so, here we go!


> Turn lights off when you’re finished in a room.

> Don’t leave appliances on standby.

> Turn your thermostat on your hot water tank down a few degrees. This will save you adding cold water to your bath when its too hot, especially in the summer.

> Change your light bulbs to energy saving bulbs. Energy saving bulbs will last up to 15 times longer than a standard bulb.

> Turn radiators off in rooms you don’t use often like a spare room.

> Set your radiator thermostats a few degrees lower and set a time for your radiators to heat up and cool down so you don’t accidentally leave them on. We recommend setting your timer to half an hour before you wake up in the morning and then off when you usually leave the house and back on half an hour before you arrive back at your house and then off again when you usually go to bed. This will be only less thing you have to remember every day!

> Wash your clothes on a lower temperature like 30 or 40 degrees instead of 60 degrees. Also, try to avoid unnecessary use of the washing machine.

> Put your clothes on your washing line or over your radiators instead of in the tumble dryer.

> Only use your dish washer when it’s fully loaded.

> Make sure you close your fridge or freezer doors when there not in use. Don’t leave them open whilst your cooking or stocking up.

> Unplug your phone charger when your battery is full and only charge your phone when your battery is almost empty instead of half full.

> If you’re renting, speak to your landlord about loft insulation and cavity wall insulation as you may be entitled to a Government grant.

> If you would like an accurate energy rating for your home, Pali can carry out an energy assessment and issue you with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). This document will give you a grade from A being the most energy efficient to G being the least and will include information on how you can improve the energy rating of your home therefore, saving you money on your energy bills. If you would be interested in ordering an EPC or you would like more information, please email: search@paliltd.com or Tel: 0151 691 1170

We hope you enjoyed our top tips and if you have any energy bill reducing tips yourself, please feel free to share them below.
