* Between 1 Jan 2018 and 30 Jun 2018, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with uSwitch saved £482 or more.

Business energy customers and those looking for simple ways to cut down on their consumption could take note of celebrity cleaner Kim Woodburn's tips.

The former co-presenter of How Clean Is Your House? has partnered with British Gas to share her expertise and help people save power in their home.

First, keeping appliances in the best condition helps them run more efficiently. "De-scaling your kettle will allow the water to boil more quickly using less energy," she suggested.

In addition, Woodburn advised maintaining the condition of oven doors as keeping them clean will allow people to check their food without unnecessarily losing heat by opening the door. 

Furthermore, she urged people to adjust the settings for their heating, to accommodate the change in weather. Recent YouGov figures showed that 39 per cent of the nation has lowered the temperature in homes since January.

One final expert tip would be to purchase an electricity unit called a standby saver, which automatically turns off certain equipment and can save around £30 each year.
