Butco energy saving tips and advice

Top energy saving tips from Butco

•  Turn your thermostat down. Reducing your room temperature by 1°C could cut your heating bills by up to 10%.
•  Always turn off the lights when you leave a room.
•  If possible fill up the washing machine, one full load uses less energy than two half loads.
•  Only boil as much water as you need.
•  Close your curtains at dusk to stop any heat escaping through the windows and check for draughts around windows and doors.
•  Use energy saving lamps they last up to 10x longer than ordinary bulbs.
•  Don’t leave appliances on Standby and remember not to leave laptops and mobile phones on charge unnecessarily.
•  Never put hot food into a fridge or freezer as it distorts the temperature and USES more energy to restore the set ambient.
•  A dripping hot water tap wastes energy and in one week wastes enough hot water to fill half a bath, so fix leaking taps and make sure they're fully turned off.
•  At night it is more efficient to leave the heating system set on low rather than turning it off. Energy costs will be less as the building is not being re-heated.
