Big Energy Saving Week
Next week is Big Energy Saving Week, and EcoFlap is delighted to take part. Ecoflap helps you save money on your energy bills by cutting draughts through your letterbox. A draughty hallway not only feels unpleasant but can fool your thermostat into believing the whole house is colder than it really is, so the boiler fires up and bingo!, you’re using more coal, gas or electricity than you need to, day after day.
Ecoflap is always keen to pass on energy saving tips and advice. Big Energy Saving Week is all about helping householders plug the gaps and learn how to use their energy more economically, through events and online material. As part of our involvement we’ve agreed to publish Energy Saving Trust’s publicity material, including the following blog post:
>>British households could save £1.7bn a year by switching appliances off standby, new research from the Energy Saving Trust has found.
In the countdown to next week’s Big Energy Saving Week – a joint campaign between Energy Saving Trust, Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and Citizens Advice – research reveals the number of appliances in homes is sending bills out of control and costing households billions.
Throughout the campaign the Energy Saving Trust will be issuing research and guidance to help householders learn how to take control of their electricity and heating bills with free advice available throughout the week over the phone, online and at events across the UK.
