Power saving tips for winter  

Keep warm and keep your power use down this winter with these top tips! 

Winter tips

1. Heating accounts for 50% of household power use, heat only the rooms you're using to save. 

2. Up to 40% of winter warmth leaks through windows. Invest in good quality lined curtains. 

3. Air leakage accounts for 15 - 25% of winter heat loss, use door snakes (or even a rolled-up towel) to stop draughts. 

4. Instead of heating your bedroom all night, use an electric blanket to heat your bed before you get in, turn it off or down once you’re in!

5. Close doors to rooms not being used, your heater won't have to work as hard to keep you warm.
