2 Why save energy? Saving energy in your home can help you save money on your household bills. And using less energy is good for the environment, as it will reduce your carbon footprint. Baxi has some easy energy saving tips to help you. Your heating system High efficiency boilers If your boiler is more than 10 years old and has a pilot light it is probably a standard efficiency boiler and could be as little as 60% efficient. That means for every pound you spend on gas, you are only getting 60p worth of heat! Modern, high efficiency boilers are over 90% efficient, by simply replacing your old inefficient boiler with a new condensing model, you could save up to 310 a year on your heating bills.* In addition, you could save up to 1,200kg carbon dioxide, significantly reducing your home s carbon footprint.* Savings of up to 310 a year on your heating bills* 7& 10 YEAR WARRANT Y Our high efficiency boilers are backed by market leading 7 and 10 year warranties. Visit baxi.co.uk to find out more. * Source: Energy Saving Trust 2 3

3 Your heating system Room thermostat A room thermostat sends a signal to the boiler to turn on when heat is required, or off when the set temperature has been reached. If you don t already have a room thermostat, consider having one fitted. You can expect savings of around 70 a year*. If you already have one, try turning it down by just one degree and you could save up to 75 a year on your energy bills*. Insulation Is your loft properly insulated? If you don t have any insulation, fitting the recommended depth of 270mm could stop your heat escaping, and save you up to 250 a year on your heating bills (for a detached property, according to Energy Saving Trust). And even topping up existing insulation which is only 100mm thick could save you money. Make better use of your radiators Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs) help you to control the temperature in each room of your home. If you have rooms that are seldom used, you can turn the temperature right down so your pipes are still protected from frost. This means you are not wasting energy by heating up unused rooms. If your radiators are cool at the base and warm at the top, there could be a build up of sludge in your system. This is caused by corrosion inside the system because there is not enough chemical inhibitor to keep it clean. Your local Gas Safe registered installer can test the system water for you and advise whether you need a power flush to clean the system or simply add the correct amount of inhibitor. This will make the radiators much more efficient at heating your rooms. If your radiators are hot at the bottom and cool at the top, you may have air in the system. This is easy to put right by bleeding the radiator: Use a radiator key to open the valve at the top of the radiator. When water starts to come out instead of air, tighten it back up again. The radiator should then be hot right to the top. Recommended insulation depth is 270mm Visit to find your local Gas Safe registered installer. 4 * Source: Energy Saving Trust 5

4 Top 10 tips for saving money on your energy bills 2 If you replace one standard light bulb with an energy efficient light bulb of the same brightness, you could save around 3 per year per bulb, according to the Energy Saving Trust. It s easier than you might think to save electricity, gas and water in your home. Did you know that when an appliance is on standby it s still using power? The Energy Saving Trust estimates that UK households spend between 45 and 80 a year powering appliances in standby mode. 3 4 There are many things you can do yourself, without spending too much money, to stop draughts and save you money. Thermal lined curtains, draught excluder and letterbox covers can all stop heat escaping and cold air coming in to your rooms. 1 Did you know that using the right sized pan for the hob and cooking with the saucepan lid on will help food to cook quicker, saving time and reducing your energy bills? Save up to 3 PER YEAR by replacing one standard light bulb with an energy efficient light bulb. 6 7

5 5 Your parents were right when they told you to turn the lights off when you leave the room. Did you know you can now buy motion detectors for your home, so that lights automatically turn on and off as you enter or leave the room? 7 To improve the efficiency of your fridge or freezer, defrost them regularly and always wait for cooked food to cool before putting it away. Although tempting, don t dry clothes on radiators as this will make the boiler work harder than it needs to. 8 6 If your refrigerator is suitable for a family of six and there are only two of you, or you have to heat an oven big enough to cook for an army, when you only need to cook for a family of four, then you could be wasting a lot of energy. Buying A-rated equipment that is the right size for your needs could save you money on your fuel bills. According to the Energy Saving Trust 21% of home heating bills is from heating water for the bath, tap or shower. 8 9

6 9 According to the Energy Saving Trust, about 21 per cent of the home heating bill is used to heat water. By making sure your washing machine and dishwasher are full before turning them on, by showering instead of bathing and only boiling enough water in your kettle for what you need, you can make significant savings. Controls Baxi controls can help you to use your boiler more efficiently, helping you save money on your fuel bills. Baxi programmable 24 hour wireless sensor Single channel timer and room sensor Easy to read, backlit LCD display Night set-back function - lowers room temperature at night to save energy Save 30 a year on your water & gas bill by not leaving the tap running Source: Energy Saving Trust 10 Did you know that by simply filling your sink to wash the dishes, rather than leaving the tap running, you could save around 30 a year on your gas bill and around 30 on your water bill (if you are on a meter)?
