By insulating some key parts of your central heating system you could save around £45 a year off your heating bills. If you have a hot water tank that isn't insulated or any hot water pipes going in and out of it you could be throwing money out of the window. For a very small investment e.g. £30 and a little time you could have it sorted.
We all know that energy saving light bulbs are more efficient, but how much could they save you in terms of money, and are they worth the extra cost? For an average 2 bedroom house with just 20 ordinary 60W bulbs, the cost of the electricity they use over a year is around £150. If all these bulbs were replaced with their energy saving alternatives rated at 11W each the annual cost could be reduced to around £30. A no brainer when you look at it like that! And remember energy saving bulbs last up to 10 times longer than ordinary bulbs, yet another reason to swap old bulbs now !!
