Climate change is real, and every one of us has a responsibility to make the necessary changes required to tackle it. One of the key ways in which we can all help to reduce our impact on the planet is to use less power in our homes and workplaces. The good news is, this typically leads to reduced energy bills, saving you money!
We tend to think of autumn and winter as the times when energy use is at its highest, with many homeowners investing in various methods of insulation to keep heat in their homes. However, we still need to focus on reducing energy consumption throughout the spring and summer too! Fridges and freezers are working overtime to keep your food fresh and cold, fans and air conditioning units are running to keep you comfortable in the heat, and using the air con function in your car means you’ll need to fill up the tank more often.
If you want to cut down on your household’s power usage this summer, the tips in this infographic will help you to make some positive changes. From defrosting your freezer and keeping it as full as possible, to making the most of the sun and drying your laundry outside, you might be surprised at some of the little things that can have a big impact on the environment and your energy bills!
