Frugal tips to save money on your energy this winter

When it comes to saving money on your energy this winter there really is a lot you can do.

 

frugal tips for your energy

 

1) Having boiler insurance is very important. You do not want to be without your boiler and repairs and replacements are very expensive – do make sure this is in place.

 

2) Shopping around for the right tariff is also uber important. Energy+BoilerCare is a new tariff from EDF Energy that comes with 6 months boiler and heating insurance included so you won’t have to worry about overwhelming and unexpected costs! I will never forget our boiler breaking down one wintertime just before Christmas and the huge expense this cost us because we weren’t insured. It was a nasty shock and something you will most definitely want to avoid. Have a look here for more information on Energy+BoilerCare.

 

3) Check for gaps around doors and windows and block those gaps. Insulation tape is easy to apply and inexpensive.You can buy it all good hardware shops.

 

4) Pile on the layers as this really does trap in heat and don’t forget your socks and slippers!

 

5) Manage your heating by considering one of these Smart Heating Solutions that enables you to control temperature on your thermostat even when you are not at home. This way it will be nice and toasty when you come in but not wasting heat before then.

 

6) Close internal doors to stop heat escaping.

 

7)  Do consider a hot water bottle, heated blanket and a winter duvet then you can turn your heating off at night.

 

8) We all eat more cooked food in winter so do consider batch cooking so you still get all those lovely home cooked meals but your oven isn’t on constantly.

 

9) Unplug your appliances and turn off your lights. Simple and speedy solutions but they all make a difference.

 

10) Consider turning down the temperature of your water heater to the warm setting.

 

11) When you make a cup of tea fill y a flask with the hot water to save you having to reheat your kettle.

 

12) Change to energy saving lightbulbs – we use A LOT more artificial light in winter.

 

13) Open curtains /blinds in the day to let in light and close them in the evening to keep in warmth.

 

14) Turn down your thermostat slightly and definitely when you go out.

 

15) Air dry clothes in a warm room rather than turning on your tumble dryer.

 

Oh, I could go on! The little things really do make a difference. There are so many smart ways to save energy in winter and keep costs low. A lot of it is common sense but it really can make such a difference.

 

How the Amazon Echo Dot can help

You can use the Amazon Echo Dot to control lights and your heating, which can help with reducing energy usage. If you are an EDF Energy customer you can download energy skill and ask Alexa to check your energy account balance and next payment date, submit a meter reading or find out when your tariff’s due to end. This should make it easier to stay on top of your energy usage and understand it better.

    I suffer from really cold feet in the winter, so always were a cosy pair of thick thermal socks, which really help to keep me warm x

    I keep warm with a good old fashioned water bottle

  3. November 1, 2018 / 10:52

    Oooh I’d never thought about turning down the temperature on our water heater. Thanks for the tip. We tend to layer up with loads of jumpers in the winter, and snuggle under throws on the sofa to watch TV.

    I love this one: 7) Do consider a hot water bottle, heated blanket and a winter duvet then you can turn your heating off at night.

    Sounds so cosy, that it wouldn’t be seen as going without heating at all!

    My favourites keep warm tip is to get up and have a quick walk outside.. Then come home to a blanket you have already put over the radiator :)… Mmmmm toasty and warm. Your walk will get the blood pumping then the blanket keeps you warm 🙂

    You’ve covered lots of my favourite tips already. A little thing that can help which I do is always leave the oven door open once you’ve turned it off and finished cooking (not suitable if you have small children!!!). You might as well have the extra heat in your room than just letting the oven cool down with the door shut. It keeps the kitchen toasty warm while you’re eating!

  111. November 5, 2018 / 09:50

    I’m northern, “I’m cold can I put the heating on?” “DO YOU THINK I’M MADE OF MONEY?! put an extra jumper on and be done with ya!” was a daily argument. I am all about the ‘arm knit’ blanket though this winter. They’re so soft and huge. I have just bought one from So1obags (soon to be on Etsy). Amazing!

  112. Natalie White

  115. Gilly Holmes
    November 5, 2018 / 14:49

    Don’t let yourself get cold, it will take longer to warm up again and cost more in heating.

  124. Jamie Piper

    lots of layers of clothing to keep warm, unless you are on the move because you will sweat and the sweat will cool when you stop moving and make you cold!

    Fluffy socks and a toasty dressing gown are a must in the cold weather!

  127. November 6, 2018 / 15:23

    Socks and slippers! It amazes me how often my kids tell me they are cold and yet they have bare feet still? Or really thin trainer socks on.

    invest in a decent pair of slippers and it is amazing how much warmer you will feel with toastie toes!

  128. Davina Mellon

    November 7, 2018 / 12:46

    When I’m cold, rather than turning up the heating, I just get up and either do several star jumps or go and run up and down the stairs a few times. Both really warm you up!

    I keep warm inside with layers of fleece tops and socks and thermal heatglen leggings,which if below 5oc I wear to bed ,I have no central heating,so keep old fashioned shutters closed on the small windows in the evening ,no bath ,only a shower ,so keep the bathroom warm with an electric wall heater .

    My tips for keeping warm are wearing extra clothing…. Especially socks and a cardigan. A hot water bottle or wheat wrap are good too

  176. Pam Lawrence
    November 17, 2018 / 17:01

    Layers and a blanket – i wear various layers, always wear a scarf – not an outside woolly one, but a light one which coordinates with my clothes, but can be wound around to keep my neck warm! Also i wear socks and slippers, and put a fleece throw over my knees whilst sitting still, plus have a hot water bottle next to me to cuddle up to, and a warm drink!

    I hate the cold. HATE it. It’s all about the layers for me, I wear tonnes of clothes. Also though, as I have a really bad back and hip issue, I always need a hot water bottle for the pain. That does help. Old fashioned, but works!

    Hello!
    A good pair of cosy pjs, fluffy socks and a sofa blanket is my tips! Its when you are sat still when you feel the chill, so when you are relaxing in front of the TV of an evening, a blanket keeps you perfectly cosy! Always got mine on me in the evenings! 🙂
    I enjoyed reading your tips! I try to be savvy with my heating.. always looking for ways to save money. I have 6 kids so every penny counts!

    Hi,
    I came across your blog whilst looking for tips on saving money – some great ideas – thanks.
    I’ve rolled up an old towel into a sausage shape, put elastic bands round either ends to hold in place, and sewn up a bit of old sheeting around it, to create a sausage for a drafty door (draught excluder on the cheap.) The difference to the temperature of the room is amazing, and heating isn’t kicking in as often.

    Cheers
    Emma

    Wear a jumper or coat around the house when the weather gets cold, thus keeping you nice and warm indoors – it’ll save you plenty of money on bills and you won’t have to turn the heating up so often!

  255. Faye Reed

    Use a draft excluder or towel/blanket to cover the gap in the bottom of the living room door. It’s amazing how much of a draft it causes and how warmer the room stays with it covered.

  256. Kathy Chilvers
    November 30, 2018 / 15:22

    I have a little fox that I heat up in the microwave. I then put on my stomach to warm ‘my core’ up.

  257. Emma Jackson
    November 30, 2018 / 16:29

    We all have our own blankets for watching a film, it’s really tempting to boost the central heating when you’re just sat watching TV. Snuggling is much cheaper xx

  260. Fiona Johnstone
    November 30, 2018 / 17:13

    Fluffy socks, big blanket and a hot water bottle. So much better than putting the heating on.

  264. Alison Clark
    November 30, 2018 / 18:49

    I put the heating on and close myself in to the living room for half an hour – its only a smallish room and with the doors shut it gets hot really quickly and lasts the rest of the night.

  269. Lesley Bambridge
    November 30, 2018 / 19:58

    My favourite way is to sit in a cosy bed with a hot water bottle. I read, or do puzzles. Being upstairs, the heat rises and the temperature is quite a bit warmer in the bedrooms

  270. Nikki Phipps

  275. Carolynn Crabb
    November 30, 2018 / 21:18

    I always wear layers – a cami under a jumper – tights under trousers, socks and slippers. If you keep warm with layers you can turn the heating back by at least a couple of degrees

  276. REBECCA TOWNSEND
    November 30, 2018 / 21:54

    Go for a walk outside, when you come back inside it will feel much warmer, and also make sure you layer up with thin clothes rather than just one thick layer of clothing.
