Bills, bills,
bills and even more bills! In this technology fuelled aged it seems the only
way is up when it comes to energy bills. It therefore may come as no surprise
that the levels of carbon emissions continue to rise despite many governments
efforts. Whilst some of us are environmentally conscious, most of us consume
high volumes of energy daily – all at once, at times. This inevitably means
that we continuously pay out hefty sums to accommodate equally hefty
energy-consuming lifestyles. High energy consumption is equal to high energy
bills – therefore to avoid higher energy bills, it is paramount to avoid high
energy usage. Would you agree that we’re on to something here? Yes? Well, that
is fantastic – admitting the problem is the first step to recovery! But how
does one achieve this?

The first step
to avoiding higher energy bills is quite clearly a no-brainer; simply to reduce
levels of energy consumption. Treat this almost as you would a diet – don’t go
for a dramatic upheaval too quickly, but rather choose a slow but steady
mechanism.  As opposed to reading an e-book from your laptop which is by
the way sucking your electricity dry, you could unplug the device and pick up a
dog-eared book from the shelf.

Better yet
before you take our advice, use the energy consuming device that is your
laptop, for a much higher purpose – do a quick search on the internet for the
best possible gas and electricity prices around. The internet is rife with
comparison websites that immediately
gas and electricity prices

for you in a matter of seconds. Within which time, you may even find that you’d
be better off on a different home broadband deal.

Gas and
electricity prices are constantly on a rise with the average household gas and
electricity bill increasing by £100 year on year, therefore it’s essential that
you compare gas and electricity prices from not just the Big Six energy
suppliers but from the many smaller gas and electricity companies dotted throughout
the UK. Shop around the entire energy market to find prices that are the best
for you.

Unbeknownst to
most, the gaps between walls in your home are one of the keys to avoiding
higher energy bills to pay, by keeping the heat locked in wall-insulation ensures
that large amounts of energy are not escaping your home. Be sure to insulate
your home from an established insulation company for the best results.
Furthermore, always keep an eye on your bills as well as how much energy is
used in your home. By having your own record you can spot whether you’re being
overcharged by your gas and electricity supplier.
