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.

Energy suppliers are feeling increased pressure from the government to regulate and lower the cost of their fuel prices, after three of the big six energy suppliers have raised their energy prices once again by 20%.

The companies have all blamed the rise in gas prices on the rise in the wholesaler's prices.

The first thing to understand is that these companies we pay for our gas and electric bills, rarely produce the energy themselves. Like any other retailer, they buy their product from a wholesaler.

Q: If we check how much wholesalers are selling their fuel for, will it show if energy suppliers are justified in their high fuel prices?

If only it was that simple!

There are a lot of energy prices on the market, and they change every day, therefore the cost will differentiate when supply and demand goes up and down.

Wholesale prices are set at which period or season they are selling for. For example, a wholesaler and energy company may strike up a deal called 'winter 2017'. The energy firm is agreeing to buy gas to be shipped to them throughout October to March.

More expenses and pay outs are unlikely to do the economy any good.

Q: why doesn't the existing competition lower prices anyway?

Tariffs are still likely to mirror each other. Every time one supplier announces a price hike, it becomes easier for others to do the same, similar to how the cost of petrol can fluctuate so easily.

What you have to remember is that the 'big six' energy companies are trying like the rest of the economy, to make money, and that they'll be playing the field to get the best prices and stay on top of the market just like any other profit driven firm.

Have you ever gotten frustrated by the insufficient performance of the supposed "energy efficient" product compared to the regular version? Unfortunately, that does happen, but it doesn't have to happen when you purchase LED lighting. Keep these traits in mind when you're buying your next LED light.

  • Brightness: Equal or better!
  • Light Output: Consistent color and brightness, no fading over time.
  • Efficiency: No fluttering; turns on instantly, no energy wasted when turned off.

What the U.S. Dept. of Energy Says About LED

One way the U.K. can save gobs of money and electricity over the next 20 years is by utilising LED lights instead of other lighting options. The UK Office of Energy claims a savings of £265 billion over the next 20 years and a reduction in lighting electricity by 33 percent by 2027. Also, the production of about 40 new power plants will be prevented!
