The recent energy price increase has again highlighted the importance of using our power wisely. Quite apart from the environmental benefits (reducing carbon emissions, helping to control global warming) being energy smart is becoming a fact of life for everyone, and living in a climate like ours here in the UK can mean never really knowing what the elements are going to throw at you.
So even a night in, especially in winter, isn't always going to be as cheap as it sounds!
The really bad news is that an awful lot of the energy we all use is actually going to waste. The good news is that there's something we can do about it.
E.ON's "No More Than You Need" campaign is all about helping you pinpoint energy wastage in your home, so that you get the benefit of absolutely everything you're paying for, putting money back in your pocket.
The campaign includes a number of ways that you can begin to improve energy efficiency.
First of all, it offers you the chance to host an energy efficiency expert. Comparing your home with others in the area, he or she will assess your home's energy performance, work out where wastage is occurring and recommend the next steps to take.
Secondly, you will be made aware of a number of energy-related discounts and loans that you are free to take advantage of, such as the "Green Deal": a government scheme which provides loans to any energy-saving home improvement, such as double glazing, cavity wall insulation or an energy efficient boiler.
Thirdly, you have the option of exploring and making use of a vast array of helpful tips to improve energy efficiency in the home. These will make you aware of the ways in which you are currently wasting energy and subsequent steps to take to rectify waste.
It really is that easy. Use the EON Energy Saving Toolkit to put money back in your pocket and reduce energy waste today.
