Reduce Your Energy Use


Saving power is empowering

Many believe that becoming energy efficient involves sacrifice. You’ll have to make painful lifestyle changes to reduce your utility bills.

However, nothing could be further from the truth.

Reducing your power consumption is incredibly easy. And at Co-operative Energy Saving, we’ve helped countless homeowners discover how empowering it feels to:

  • Save money
  • Protect the planet

Each additional energy efficiency improvement not only saves you money today, but it also helps to shield you from future price hikes tomorrow.

However, where do you even begin?

Start with the low-hanging fruit

These are simple tips you can implement today – without spending a penny:

  • Turn off appliances when not in use. Just your computer alone is costing you £90 a year if you leave it on 24/7. Keeping appliances on standby isn’t much help either. You can save £80 by disabling this energy-wasting feature
  • Adjust your thermostat down by 1ºC and save £90 annually
  • Only do full loads in the dishwasher and make £75 in savings

Taking energy reduction to the next level

With the savings you’ll enjoy you can begin exploring some bigger, more intensive, home improvement projects. The following improvements do have an initial cost but quickly pay for themselves once installed.

  • Install LED light bulbs. Did you know that 90% of the energy used in incandescent bulbs comes off as heat – not light? By using energy-efficient LEDs, you can cut your electricity use for lighting considerably
  • Use a smart thermostat to intelligently regulate your home’s interior. Potential savings exceed £150 annually
  • Invest in proper insulation. With the right type of insulation, you could save £500 a year in energy consumption
