Install a smart thermostat

Smart thermostats give that extra level of control when heating your home. By connecting your thermostat to a tablet or mobile device with an internet connection, you can control your home's heating simply with the touch of a button even while you are out and about.

Some of today’s models even feature learning technologies that remembers and learns your personal usage, automatically making the adjustments you would normally do. Once installed, you can quickly adjust the controls depending on your needs, gain useful statistics on your usage, turn your heating off if you are out and even switch it back on before you arrive home, so you are welcomed by a warm home.

Monitor your usage

Monitoring your home's energy usage is the quickest way of working out where and how you can save energy around your home. One of the best ways of monitoring your home's energy usage is by installing a smart meter.

Smart meters allow you to see exactly what is using the most electricity and gas in your home as well as how much it is using. They also automatically send your meter readings to your energy provider, so you don't have to. For more information about smart meters and for installation advice, contact your home's energy provider.
