Important little ways to stay cosy this winter
It’s getting a bit chilly out there and if your thoughts have turned to fluffy slippers, hot water bottles and cosy winter evenings, you may also be wondering how you can resist the need to crank the heating up quite so high.
There are, in fact, lots of ways we could all save energy and money this winter- little tricks and tips that, when done consistently and collectively, could really make a big difference to your energy bill.
And, as part of our Acts of Warmness campaign, we’ll be on the road letting everybody know all about them. For example — turning down your thermostat by just one degree could save you about £75 a year*. And if think you’ll feel too cold, don’t worry. A well-draught-proofed home can feel very warm and cosy, even at lower temperatures.
So, if you live in or near Sunderland, Nottingham, Newcastle, Leeds, Birmingham or Sheffield, make sure you visit us in our pop-up Acts of Warmness snug. It’ll be warm and dry, so while you talk about some smart energy saving ideas to see you through winter, we’ll bring you a cup of tea, and there’ll be some lovely npower people on hand – including Rachel Riley, TV’s resident clever clogs.
