Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters.
Smart meters show you the amount of energy you’re using as you use it and how much you are spending in pounds and pence. Since 2015 gas and electricity suppliers across Great Britain are replacing our traditional meters with smart meters at no extra cost.
There are lots of ways you can cut down energy use in your home, which will help you save money on your energy bills. With a few, small changes you could save over £160 a year.
Turning any central heating thermostats down by one degree could save you between £8O and £95 every year.
Turning off your lights when you’re not in the room could save you around £13 a year. Similarly, if you turn computer equipment off at the wall, instead of leaving it on standby, you could save £8 a year.
By setting the washing machine to wash at 30 degrees rather than at higher temperatures, you could save around £16 a year. You could also save £129 a year on electricity by drying clothes on a clothesline instead of using a tumble dryer.
lt is a recognised fact that simply by monitoring power usage, bills can be cut for all households! it’s expected to see energy bills reduced by some 20%.
So be smart and get a smart meter.
