Keep an eye on your energy use | Work smarter, not harder

Take control of your energy use with these clever ways to use less energy, spend less money and emit less carbon.

There are several ways to get the most out of your energy use at home, and make sure you're not wasting any of the energy that you pay for!

Smart meters put you in control of your energy use, making it easier to see what you're using, when you're using it and how much it costs - some appliances may have a higher energy use than you expect! Your energy supplier should offer you a smart meter installation for free.

Similar to smart meters, smart thermostats connect your heating system to the internet, allowing you to control your heating via your smartphone when you're out and about. Unlike smart meters, you install or arrange installation of smart thermostats yourself, so it doesn't matter which energy provider supplies your energy. 

Lastly, smart water heaters make the most of your energy use by heating water only when you need it, either by measuring and predicting your water consumption patterns, or based on a schedule you choose and control via an app on your phone.

All smart meters are useful for getting more familiar with your energy use, helping you to make more informed choices about how you power and heat your home.
