It shouldn’t cost the earth to keep your home warm. If you're looking to save energy and money the Citizens Advice energy price comparison tool can help take the stress out of switching energy suppliers. You should check you’re on the best energy tariff or with the best  supplier for you.

It only takes a few minutes to check if you could save money on your energy bills. 

Top Tips for Energy Saving

Use a bowl to wash-up rather than running a tap, reduce your washing machine use by one cycle a week, and only fill the kettle with the water you need and you could save around £36 a year in the kitchen
A dripping tap can waste more than 5,300 litres of water a year, so make sure your taps are properly turned off and change washers promptly when taps start to drip.
Spend one minute less in the shower each day and a family of four could save £75 a year on energy and water bills.
A running tap wastes more than 6 litres of water every minute, so turn off the tap while brushing your teeth, shaving, or washing your face.
Replacing an inefficient shower head with a water efficient one could save a household of four people around £70 a year off gas bills and around £115 a year off water bills.
