  • Turn offany lights in your house that you are not using. If the kitchen lights are on whilst you’re in the living room, this is wasting energy.
  • Consider switchingto LED lights. Discuss this with your landlord and see if it’s something they are willing to do for you, or they cost as little as £2 from IKEA if you want to front the cost yourself. An LED light bulb uses over 75% less energy than a regular bulb.
  1. Be more efficient with your laundry
  • Washing your laundry at 20 or 30 degreesrather than 40+ can help you to reduce your energy usage. If you have a good relationship with your housemates it may also be worth combining your washes.
