Some energy saving ideas that we can help with

Install an energy monitoring device. These are really simple and an easy way to see how much energy you are consuming daily.

Upgrade your boiler. If you were to replace your old inefficient boiler with an energy efficient A-rated boiler you could save you up to £200 per year.

Install loft insulation. By putting insulation in your loft you could save up to £90 a year.

Rain water harvesting. By collecting rainwater in either above ground or below ground systems we can use this water for washing machines, toilets, garden etc. Only 50% of our water needs to be of drinking water quality. A massive 33% is used for flushing toilets.

Install a voltage optimiser. This can save around 10% to 20% off your electricity bills. It’s a simple solution and easy to install by a competent electrician.

Install a water saver in your toilet cistern. This can save up to 3 litres of water every time you flush the toilet.

Replace old incandescent lamps with energy saving lamps will use 80% less electricity.
