Start your #PowerSwitch ⚡
Creating a better tomorrow 🌍💙Hi to our little world that is our wonderful community 👋
If you're new here, welcome, or if you've been floating around on the Community for a while, you've perhaps been wondering how you can save energy and lower your energy consumption for you and our planet. Whilst knowledge of climate action is important, it isn't everything. We need to have the desire and determination to make positive changes and have the passion and drive to act upon it.
Whilst it's good news the price cap is going down in October, that doesn't mean our energy usage needs to start creeping back up.
With that in mind, I've got some tips for you that I wanted to share.
You can start your own #PowerSwitch ⚡
Saving energy in your home can reduce your bills and your carbon footprint, which in itself is already pretty fantastic! But we know our Community folk always go that little bit extra when it comes to energy saving, and together we can help people get even more out of their energy with a few small #PowerSwitches .
Keep your style looking fresh 👠
Tumble dryers are one of the most power-hungry appliances in your home 🤯
Try making use of your washing line or an indoor airer and you could save up to £60 a year!
(Bonus tip - air drying helps protect your clothes, so they fit better and last longer.)
A lighter home for a brighter day 🌞
You could save up to £25 a year by simply flipping that light switch off when you leave a room. Better yet, make the most of the sunshine and leave them switched off during the day.
(Bonus tip - natural light is associated with better mental and physical wellbeing. It can also help you catch some extra 💤's)
Find ways to improve your energy efficiency with energy generation.
Home energy solutions like solar panels or air source heat pumps could shrink your carbon footprint and significantly reduce your energy bills.
One thing I do to save energy in my home, is use my air fryer to cook a boiled egg! Here me out.... just pop in as many eggs as you like into your basket and cook at 180 degs for at least 12 minutes and low and behold, not only are you getting the extra golden goodness but you're also being more efficient with energy... and you don't have to wash up the egg pan residue. You're welcome! #EmsEggTips
That's what is so lovely about being part of our community, it's finding ways of helping one another with ways we can save energy. 😍
I want to hear your thoughts and the little #PowerSwitches you've made in your home, that help you to save energy day-to-day? Let's get talking 🗣
