About ChurchCare

By each saving a little energy at home we can collectively make a huge impact on the carbon footprint of the country.

Top Ten Tips:

  1. Turning your thermostat down by 1ºC could cut your heating bills by up to 10 percent and save you around £30 per year.
  2. Is your water too hot? Your cylinder thermostat shouldn't need to be set higher than 60ºC/140ºF.
  3. Close your curtains at dusk to stop heat escaping through the windows.
  4. Always turn off the lights when you leave a room.
  5. Don't leave appliances on standby and remember not to leave appliances on charge unnecessarily.
  6. If you're not filling up the washing machine, tumble dryer or dishwasher, use the half-load or economy programme.
  7. Only boil as much water as you need (but remember to cover the elements if you're using an electric kettle).
  8. A dripping hot water tap wastes energy and in one week wastes enough hot water to fill half a bath, so fix leaking taps and make sure they're fully turned off!
  9. Replace your light bulbs with energy saving recommended ones: just one can reduce your lighting costs by up to £78 over the lifetime of the bulb - and they last up to 12 times longer than ordinary light bulbs.
  10. For more advice, visit the Energy saving Trust web-site , the CSE advice pages.
