The Sun is… Shining?

A short message from Anne, our Money & Home Energy Adviser.

It’s been a long hot summer this year, but the recent rainstorms and flooding have reminded us all that colder and damper weather will return all too soon.  Here are four practical tips you can do right now to reduce heating and electricity bills and avoid condensation and damp. 

  • Keep your gas meter topped up over the summer so you don't owe money in the winter
  • Register with your electricity supplier to get a reminder about when to apply for the £140 Warm Home Discount
  • Submit monthly meter readings to get accurate heating and electricity bills
  • Take advantage of the good weather: open windows and dry clothes outside to avoid condensation and damp.

If you would like advice on home energy, you can request a call from Anne in your My Home account (it's in the My House box)
