With energy prices rising, it’s a good idea to know where exactly you can start saving money and energy around your home. Read on for our helpful tips and advice on how to do this.
In this post we start with two of the easiest energy saving changes you can make: switching to energy saving light bulbs and protecting your appliances against limescale build up.
Switching To Energy Efficient Lightbulbs
We all have dozens of bulbs in use everyday throughout the home and they may be costing you money unnecessarily. You probably already know that energy saving light bulbs are more efficient and cost-effective than traditional bulbs, but exactly how much could making the change impact on your monthly bills?
The results might surprise you. The EnergySavingTrust states that replacing just one traditional bulb with an energy saving light bulb can save £3 a year on average and by swapping all your inefficient bulbs in your home you could save around £55 a year!

Preventing Limescale Build Up
Limescale is prominent in hard water areas and can be a big threat to the health of all your home appliances that are connected to the water supply or use unfiltered water to function. Appliances that are commonly effected by limescale build up include washing machines, dishwashers, steam cleaners, kettles and coffee makers.
Limescale deposits can cover internal components of your appliances such as heating elements. This covering makes your appliances operate less efficiently and as a result they need to work harder to deliver the same performance levels you have come to expect. The major downside to this is that all this extra work can add needlessly to your utility bills and if the problem persists it can even cause parts to fail.
Fortunately, limescale can be prevented and its impact restricted by using a descaling product in your appliances regularly. We have descaler for washing machines, dishwasher and coffee makers as well as versatile descaler for small appliances.
