The average house now uses around 13 appliances in the home, which is a huge jump when we compare the amount of electrical appliances 30 to 40 years ago.
But despite this increase in the number of devices we have, we still use roughly the same amount of electricity as we did two decades ago, but why is that?
Well this can be explained by the fact that manufacturers have made huge developments in making these appliances more energy efficient, and also due to the fact that energy is more expensive in this day and age.
But does this mean that we should just forget about trying to save more energy, if we are using roughly the same per person as we did in the 90s?
Of course it doesn’t, and people are looking for ways to save energy all the time, whether it is to save a bit more money on your electricity bills, or to reduce your carbon footprint.
We have put together some of the best ways that you can save energy in the home, so lets get to it.
Turn Off Appliances
Ok so people have been saying this one for years, but it is still something that a lot of people tend to overlook when trying to cut down their energy bills.
Turn things off, even if they are on standby they are drawing electricity.
Get A New Boiler
There is no bias in this statement whatsoever, but a new boiler is much more efficient and will cut down on your gas charges.
It is a well-known fact that double glazing is one of the best ways to trap more heat in your home.
The initial investment can usually pay itself off within a 10 year timeframe, so if you own your house you should consider getting new double glazed windows.
