Keep The Temperature Down And Save Money And Energy

Even for those who are not too bothered about helping the environment by reducing their energy footprint (= energy usage) the argument about the bottom line holds sway: who doesn't want to save money?

Well, by reducing the temperature around the home you can do exactly that.

Of course no-one is saying that you should be cold and shivering but turning the heating down by around 1 degree celsius is said to save you around a whopping 10% on your heating bill a year that's according to a figure from the energy saving trust.

This means that rather than having a room at say 20 degrees celsius you have it at 19 degrees, as it is only one degree you should not notice the difference too much and some report just wearing a thicker jumper in the winter to compensate for that one degree.

You will be pleased when the energy bill comes, but do remember to stay warm and not take it to extremes by cutting the temperature several degrees.
