Energy Action Scotland have some handy energy saving tips you can use in your home!

Such as:

- If your home has a hot-water tank or cylinder, it should have at least 8cm (3 inches) of insulation. This will reduce the cost of heating the water and keep it hot for longer.

- If there is no thermostat on the hot-water tank it is worth looking into having one fitted. The hot water thermostat should be set at around 63°C (140°F), as this is usually hot enough for most household use.

- Only switch the hot water on for the hours when hot water is needed. It is more expensive to leave it on all day. An hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon/evening is usually enough for most people’s needs.
