We all need energy for our homes. We need it to keep us warm, and to cook our food with. Without energy our lives would be quite uncomfortable. Just because we need this energy, it does not mean we have to pay through the roof of our warm houses for it. There are a number of things that can be done to reduce your energy costs and the purpose of this guide is to provide you with all the information necessary to help you to get on your way to doing just that.
This guide is designed with you, the consumer, in mind because as consumers ourselves, we know how important it is to have all of the necessary information to hand so that an informed decision can be made. We think that this is especially important when it concerns something that is so vital to our everyday lives.
To make the most of this guide, we recommend that you have one of your recent electricity and gas bills in front of you for reference so that you can look at information first hand as we explain it to you. We have provided you with a table within which you can note down these bits of information when prompted along the way. This way you will know which areas have been highlighted as compareandsave hotspots.
We also recommend that you read the guide section-by-section so that you can take a step by step approach to identifying the areas where money can be saved. However, if there is only one section that interests you, it can be read on its own as a mini-guide.
