  2. Manage your lighting - this can cover various practices, from switching off lights in un-occupied rooms, keeping windows clear, making sure light fittings are clean and using energy efficient lighting.
  3. Manage your heating - keeping your heating to its optimum level. For every 1°C increase in temperature, you could be looking at an energy cost rise of around 8%. Don't use heating in un-used rooms. Keep heaters clear of obstructions. Ensure that heat insulation and draft proofing to doors & windows is in place. Keep your heating system regularly maintained.
  4. Energy audit - obtaining the cheapest tariff is one way to keep costs down, but managing the way in which you use your energy can add even greater savings. Ask for assistance in this area to have somebody recommend ways to reduce your energy consumption.
  5. Smart meters - these will be implemented over the next few years, providing several benefits. There will be no more estimated bills - you will only pay for what you use. You can monitor your usage online in near real-time and make changes to the way in which you consume your energy.
