You may not realise it, but making a few small changes to the way you use energy can make a big difference to the cost of your energy bills – our home energy saving tips are full of great ideas to help save you money.
For instance, our energy saving tips for lights and lamps will outline how switching to energy-efficient light bulbs can save you around £78 in lighting costs over the lifetime of the bulb. And did you know that you can save around 3% on your heating bill for every degree that you turn down your thermostat?
Once you’ve switched energy, put some of our tips to save money on energy bills into practice to cut costs even further. And being more energy-efficient also means your doing your bit for the planet too.
Switching energy supplier is the quickest and simplest way to cut your gas and electricity bills – you can literally save hundreds of pounds a year from switching alone. If you’ve been put off because you think it’s too much hassle, think again – you can compare energy deals and switch within a matter of minutes.
Once you’ve agreed your switch, you’ll be with your new supplier and saving money within 21 days, and your gas and electricity will be supplied through the existing pipes and cables, meaning there’s no need for any digging or drilling at your property. Why pay more for the same energy? Switch now.
If you’re a business owner and you’ve never switched energy suppliers, or you’ve let an old contract expire, you’ll be paying too much for business gas and electricity. This means you need to run a business energy comparison to find a deal that better suits the needs and budget of your business.
The simplest way to compare business energy prices is to give the UKPower commercial energy team a call, and they’ll compare prices and arrange your switch to save you time, money and hassle.

Insurance is something we don’t like to think about until we actually need it.

Compare boiler cover plans with us to get up to four, free no-obligation quotes to compare prices and find the best deal for you.
Home insulation could help your home become more energy efficient and cut your energy bills by as much as £390 a year*. A typical house can lose half of its heat through the walls and loft, but adequate lost insulation can help lessen the impact. And if your house has a cavity wall, but no insulation, you could benefit from installing cavity wall insulation. Compare loft insulation and cavity wall insulation with us to get up to four, free no-obligation quotes to compare prices and find the best deal for you.
*£390 savings a year figure is for 1940's 3 bed semi-detached home with a ten-year-old gas boiler and a gas price of 3.73p/kWh, when cavity wall insulation and loft insulation are installed. More modern homes save less. Individual savings depend on a range of factors and the £390 quoted should be treated as a guide.
