Saving energy costs - You have the power

Save energy, save money

Sometimes, bills can seem to get the better of us – and with increasing energy costs, running a household is getting harder.  

Because we understand how important this is to you, we’ve introduced a major project to make sure all our properties reach a high level of energy efficiency that’s well above government standards. 

We have a team of knowledgeable professionals who’ve visited thousands of properties already, to look at how we can make improvements and support you.

It’s important to remember we have over 56,000 homes to look after. Some are brand new and some are older properties, so every situation is unique. By surveying all our homes carefully we can ensure we make the right decisions and spend money wisely. 

But it’s not all about us - you have the power to save energy and save money in your home! An energy-smart household will keep you and your family comfortable, and could save you £420 or more a year. Below are just a few tips to help you do this…

Most systems have a programmer that lets you set heating and hot water to come on when you need it. If you have a thermostat you should use this to adjust temperatures around your home. Turning the temperature down by just 1° could save you around £65 a year.

Most homes lose heat through lots of little holes and openings. Closing curtains and fitting draught excluders can really help to keep the heat in.

It’s estimated you can save around £35 a year just by being careful how you use your kitchen appliances. Try turning the temperature of your washing machine down to 30°, and make sure you only boil as much water as you need.
