The Great British Insulation Scheme (previously ECO+) is an exciting initiative that is currently being finalised and is set to launch this summer 2023 through all participating energy suppliers. This scheme aims to help thousands of people across the UK better insulate their homes. Proper insulation is key to keeping your home warm and reducing heat loss. By taking advantage of this upcoming scheme, you can improve your home’s energy efficiency and reduce your carbon footprint.

One of the easiest ways to save energy and reduce your electricity bills is by upgrading to energy-efficient lighting. Replace traditional incandescent bulbs with energy-saving LED or CFL bulbs.
These bulbs not only use less energy but also have a longer lifespan. Consider installing motion sensor lights in areas where they are needed temporarily, such as hallways or garages, to avoid unnecessary energy consumption.
Invest in a smart thermostat that allows you to schedule temperature adjustments throughout the day. Set lower temperatures when you’re away or asleep and raise them when you’re at home and active. This simple adjustment can significantly reduce your energy consumption without compromising your comfort.

Did you know that electronic devices on standby mode still consume energy – roughly 40% of a device’s total energy use? Unplug chargers, power strips, and appliances when not in use to eliminate the “vampire” energy drain. Also, remember to switch off lights when leaving a room. Small habits like these can have a big impact on your energy consumption.
Regular maintenance of your heating system is essential for optimum efficiency. Schedule an annual boiler service with our experienced technicians to ensure your boiler is running smoothly.
Another effective way to improve the efficiency of your heating system is by turning down the boiler flow temperature. By reducing the temperature at which hot water is circulated throughout your home, you can save energy and lower your heating costs.
To learn more about the benefits of turning down your boiler flow temperature and other helpful tips for maintaining your heating system, check out our detailed blog post on this topic.
By following these energy-saving tips, you can create a warm and efficient home while reducing your carbon footprint. Take advantage of The Great British Insulation Scheme to improve your home’s insulation, upgrade to energy-efficient lighting, optimise your thermostat usage, unplug and switch off devices, and maintain your heating system.
