Behaviour Changing

Reduce your energy useage by taking simple, easy actions such as:

  • Minimising building leaks and draughts using draught excluders, closing doors and windows and checking window and door seals are properly maintained
  • Wear warmer clothes in winter – socks, jumpers and blankets will keep you nice and cosy inside. Layers and thermals can help outside
  • Keep radiators clear of furniture
