• Take control of your heating and cooling. Consider adjusting the thermostat controlling the temperature of your house by 2-4°.
• Carpets with underlay will give you much more insulation than bare floors, and will stop drafts.
• You can use less energy by taking a quick shower rather than a bath.
• If your freezer isn’t full, fill empty spaces with scrunched-up paper or bubble wrap to stop warm air circulating when it is opened.
• Use a lower temperature wash for clothes which aren’t very dirty.
• Air-dry your clothes on clothes racks or lines if possible – dryers are very energy-hungry appliances.
• Switch your dishwasher off completely when it has finished; it is still consuming electricity on stand-by.
• If you are replacing your computer, consider a laptop – they are more energy efficient.
