  1. Insulate your home – One of the most effective ways to reduce your heating bill is by insulating your home properly. By doing so, you will prevent heat from escaping through walls, floors, and roofs. You can add insulation to your loft space or cavity walls, which could lead to significant savings in energy bills over time
  2. Upgrade to energy-efficient appliances – Old appliances are energy-guzzlers that increase electricity bills significantly. Replacing them with more efficient models can make a considerable difference in reducing energy consumption and costs in the long run. Make sure you look for appliances with an A+ rating or higher as these are the most efficient.
  3. Install double glazing – If you have single-pane windows in your home, consider upgrading them with double-glazed ones instead. Double glazing helps trap warmth indoors by preventing heat loss through windows while reducing noise pollution too.
  4. Use smart meters – Many Scottish homes now have smart meters installed by their energy supplier. These devices help monitor electricity usage throughout the day and show how much you’re spending per hour of use. By understanding when you use the most electricity, you can adjust your habits accordingly and save money on bills
  5. Turn off standby mode – Leaving electronics on standby mode wastes a lot of electricity over time- even though they’re not being used actively! Turning off these devices entirely when they’re not in use can make a significant difference in your electricity bill.
  6. Make use of government grants. The ECO 4 Scheme provides eligible households with free insulation, free solar panels, free air source heat pumps and free electric heating. Contact Eco warmth Scotland today and complete our free eligibility quiz to see if you qualify
