A campaign is underway which challenges homeowners to become more energy efficient and environmentally friendly.
#TheGreenReset is running between 22 April and 22 May and is encouraging people to take action. From becoming plastic free or reducing online shopping, growing vegetables or reducing energy use, the aim is to create new ‘green habits’.
Homeowners are being asked to think twice about their daily routines and to explore how they could be more sustainable.
Running in parallel with the campaign, myenergi is also hosting a competition to win a selection of eco-friendly smart home devices. If you want to take part you can simply share your eco-changes on social media, tag myenergi and encourage your followers to join in. A winner will be chosen at random and notified on the last day of the campaign.
Energy saving options
Amongst the energy saving options suggested are turning off household appliances rather than leaving them on standby, turning off lights when you leave a room, and turning down your thermostat.
Appliances – turning off appliances can save an average of £30 a year.
Smart sockets – plug sockets that can be turned on and off and monitored via your phone can keep you safe and save energy.
Thermostats – more than a third of your energy use is for heating and hot water. Turning your heating down by 1degree could save up to £80 a year.
Insulation – insulating your loft and cavity walls can reduce your energy bills.
There are also grants and schemes available from the government such as the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). The ECO is a government energy efficiency scheme to help reduce carbon emissions and reduce fuel poverty.
We will be happy to discuss energy saving options for your home, so please get in touch.
