According to the Energy Saving Trust here in the Midlands we could make big savings on our energy bills. Here's their tips on how
Standby Savers - There here are a number of products available to help cut down your standby electricity consumption, such as standby savers that allow you to easily turn all of your appliances off from standby without having to reach for the plug.
Televisions and games consoles are now among the primary sources of our everyday entertainment, yet when left on permanent standby they are costing us £45-80 a year. Check your appliances regularly and switch your supplier to take control of your bills.
Cold appliances - Is your fridge-freezer 15 years or older? If it is, then the chances are that it could be using more electricity than required. As fridges, freezers and fridge-freezers are switched on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it could be worth finding models that are more energy efficient and will save you money on electricity bills. Tenants can ask their landlord to buy a newer model if the current one is faulty or not performing efficiently. If it's not possible to replace the model, then the following tips and advice can help save money on refrigeration:
o Make sure the back of your fridge-freezer is ventilated and dust free - dusting should be done at least once a year to keep it running efficiently;
o Make sure the fridge-freezer is out of direct sunlight from outside or other sources of heat from inside the home, such as your oven or boiler;
o Make sure the door seal is not damaged
o Check that it is cycling on and off as it should - ideally you should only be able to hear your fridge or freezer running 30-40% of the time; and
o Don't keep the fridge-freezer doors open longer than necessary.
Lighting - Lighting is a vital aspect of any home, especially during the darker winter evenings. Lighting makes up 16 per cent of household electricity consumption. By turning off the lights when they're not needed you could save around £7 a year. If households want to go further, replacing all the remaining old-fashioned bulbs with CFLs and all the halogens with LEDs could typically save around £45 a year.
Carl Froch has told ITV News exclusively that he is near to confirming he will fight in Las Vegas against Mexican boxer Julio Chavez Jnr.
He told us:
I've said before if I can't fight in Vegas I'll probably call it a day, it has to be big, and Chavez Jnr is that man, and I have had a good chat with my promoter this morning and we are making good progress with that fight and hopefully we'll have an announcement soon.

University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust is to reveal a new state-of-the-art robot which will perform keyhole surgery.
The 'da Vinci' robot will be able to undertake prostate, kidney, bowel, throat and heart operations.
The Trust says it will mean minimal intrusion for patients, as it allows more complex procedures to be done using keyhole surgery. This means reduced blood loss and a quicker recovery time for the patient.
It is controlled by a surgeon using their hands and feet to control the machine's four arms. The robot has 10-times greater precision than the human hand.
It's all about the rain this week, it's going to remain very unsettled and cloudy with not much sign of sunshine.Read the full story ›
