For many Londoners, the cost of living is already very high. Monthly energy bills for their gas and electricity are unavoidable but switching regularly can reduce those outgoings significantly. Comparing your last year’s bill every twelve months might seem like a chore but it could pay for your holiday each year if you play your cards right and do the leg work. It really doesn’t take that long, especially if once you’ve done it a few times. Find your favourite comparison site covering the Norwood New Town area and set a yearly reminder on your phone. Then act on it each year to make the most saving possible.
To find the lowest tariff you might need to look at your gas bill and your electricity bill separately. This is easier than you might think at first. Ove you’ve selected the best tariff for both services your gas and electric bills will be lower and you can start to plan that summer holiday.
More Energy Saving Tips
As we all know running the home central heating during the winter months can be expensive, but did you know there are some simple things you can do that can help bring down those costs. Your central heating boiler is an essential part of your home, it supplies you with unlimited hot water when you need it, and it keeps you warm in the colder months.
First, make sure that you have your boiler serviced each year, preferably before the winter kicks in. Your central heating boiler is just like a car engine, if left unserviced, over time things will start to go wrong, the same goes for the central heating boiler.
If your central heating boiler is not serviced and something is starting to go wrong your energy bills will start to rise, your boiler may need to work harder to reach that desired temperature thus higher bills, if the boiler is maintained and checked over, anything that needs adjusting or replacing can be carried out.
Another simple way to save money is to make sure the radiator itself has nothing around it, keep it clear so the heat can penetrate the room, don’t put clothes that you want to dry on the radiator put them on a clothes horse close by they will still dry. When you put clothes on the radiator all the heat is lost into the clothes and the room takes longer to heat up. Pipe insulation is another way of cutting down those energy bills. Any pipework that you can visibly see should be insulated. By fitting insulation to the pipes you are reducing the heat loss from that pipe, you can buy pipe insulation from the local DIY store.
These are just a few of the ways you can save on those central heating bills, and remember when you have the central heating boiler serviced, only use a registered gas safe company or engineer.
Now that you’ve saved money on your gas and electricity bill why not look at the other monthly costs that eat into your usable reserves and save even more money each month.Did you receive the latest monthly electrical consumption bill? I’m sure, if you are in the UK, you will read the content with anger and disgust, often because of the data showed on the bill. You might be tempted to find ways to reduce the reading on your next electric bill. A large portion of your take-home pay will always be paid to the owners and shareholders of the company that is providing you with electricity. Tampering with the electric meter is a crime, and diverting the flow of excess electricity is dangerous too. So let's not go there! Consider Coffee as an Electricity Reducer! You’ll think this as a scam or just gimmickry but those users who are already enjoying its benefits can give you proof that it is true. The lady who shared with me the technique on how to put the coffee on the cord of every electrical gadget or appliance at home showed her recent electric bill revealing a more reduced amount that she should expect. A friend of my landlady here in London, who owns a forwarding service or freight company testified that he too believes in the authenticity of this marvellous use of coffee. To tell you straight, I was also doubtful regarding this, because I don't know the component of coffee that can reduce the surge of electric power. Only the experts know. The Story Behind This Discovery. The beautiful and humble beginning of this discovery came from a not-so-prominent guy whose mother was on the verge of dying due to a terminal disease. He was able to mix the coffee with the following (aside from sugar and milk):
- Spirulina - this awesome seaweed that is rich in energy-giving nutrients and minerals
- Ganoderma or Brazilian Agaricus - a kind of tropical mushroom that is usually mixed with ground coffee beans, dubbed as a king mushroom
- glutathione - a very good whitening agent and anti-oxidant
- ginseng- libido booster
- moringa -malunggay, tropical vegetable as immune system booster, too.
This is what I did at homeOrdering a box of that particular mix of coffee will need around Php250.00 pesos ($5.00) for one user to avail. I mean, it's still on the stage of promotion, that's why when the producer (name withheld) presented it at the World Trade Center seminar hall at Pasay City, Philippines, the attendees cannot believe of what he's saying. Until he presented the evidences by showing his recent electric bills (no hanky-panky about it). The results are genuine. Most of them became interested and were able to be persuaded to share the knowledge they've learned during that seminar. In other words, it reached my home in the city. The ratio of using that sachets of coffee for every electrical appliance or gadget available at home will be like this (also depending on its size and wattage).
- electric fan - two sachets of coffee; it can be three pieces if it has bigger wattage
- television set - three sachets of coffee
- refrigerator - four sachets or more depending on its size
- laptop computer or desktop - three or four sachets of coffee
Notes and Update: 8-in1 Micswell Coffee and Nikola TeslaThe 8-in-1 Micswell Coffee here is a patented product, one with eight active ingredients. It is also called Brazilian coffee by its distributor which has already several authorised local manufacturers in the Philippines. Like what I said when I did this article last year, it's always a question whether the aluminium foil or it's coffee mix content that made your electric bill decreases. Now, that a huge discussion has been happening in social networks, like Facebook and YouTube because of this awesome innovation in my country, a more sound explanation is needed as to why this is possible. The author has been convinced with the fact that: "ENERGY CANNOT BE CREATED NEITHER DESTROYED BUT IT CAN TRANSFORM FROM ONE FORM TO ANOTHER."
From the book of Nikola Tesla regarding electricity, radio and wireless transmission.NIKOLA TESLA (10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current electrical supply system. He was also dubbed as 'mad scientist' during his time due to his miraculous inventions, from condenser to capacitor, bladeless turbine, coaxial coils and a lot more, He was more concentrated on magnetic field, the ambient and radiant energy that can prove of a free energy that we can use without the worry of electric bill every month.
Amazing Electricity! Really?Still, many are adamant about the fuzz or buzz on this coffee thing as electricity reducer. It may sound like a scam because the coffee that I've used was dealt upon by a business enthusiast who used to frequent product demonstration at the World Trade Center. I am not promoting the coffee, per se, but the benefits or comfort that it will give, a lower electric billing. Unlike before, you'll wish that you'll install a solar power system, even wind power system in order to cut off a high monthly bill on electricity. If you cannot pay in full for the installation of sun or wind power, then you can settle with this coffee thing. The proof will always depend on your decision to try this procedure, whether you're already fed up with me or out of curiosity.
More Heat Than Light
According to the UK Department of Energy, almost 50 percent of a typical home's utility bill is attributed to heating and air conditioning, 30 percent to appliances and lighting, and 20 percent to the water heater and refrigerator. This equates to almost £1,500 in energy bills for a typical household.
Following are ways to reduce your utility bills:
Tune it. A pre-season tune-up and filter is a good investment for removing dirty air that clogs your heating system, improving airflow and helping your system run efficiently. A tune-up also reduces the chances of a central heating breakdown in mid-winter and improves safety. Keeping your system running at peak efficiency equates to less energy use and lower utility bills.
Seal it. Warm air leaking into your home during the summer and out of your home during the winter will result in higher energy bills. Check for air leaks near windows, doors, outlets and switches by holding a lit incense stick next to them on a windy day. If the smoke stream moves horizontally, you have located an air leak. Caulk and weatherstrip doors and windows that leak air. Caulk and seal air leaks where plumbing, ducting, or electrical wiring penetrates through walls, floors or ceilings. Install rubber gaskets behind outlet and switch plates on exterior walls.
Take these steps to increase your comfort and reduce your utility bills.
