Washing your clothes at a colder temperature is a crucial household energy saving tip!

A washing machine spends 90% of it’s energy heating up the water, so to reduce this, why not wash your clothes at a lower temperature? Washing clothes at 30 to 40˚C will clean them just as well, while having a positive effect on the environment.

Change Water Pressure

Reducing water pressure will save money and energy!

Another way in which you can save energy at home is by turning down the water pressure in your shower. A power shower has the potential to waste as much water as a bath does! Compromise and have a high-pressure shower once a week, this will ultimately save you money as well as water.

Involve the Whole Family

Consider each aspect of home and save energy within that.

It takes a collection of people within a household to make a difference. To ensure that you are not the only one trying to save energy, get everyone involved! Encourage children to turn off the electrical appliances they have in their bedroom. Switching them fully off and not leaving them on standby will guarantee domestic energy efficiency. Make energy saving into a game to enjoy and children are more likely to pay attention to it. It is so important to think about energy conservation at home, look at our last post for more information!
