The Energy Saving Trust is urging people in the South East to follow three tips to save water and energy, without impacting on their lifestyle.
They say, an average South East household could save £22 on their energy bills each year, with metered households saving an additional £13 on their water bills by;
- Showering smarter - installing an eco-shower head to a mixer or power shower, which 49 per cent of households may be eligible to
- Turning it down - washing clothes at 30C, saving 40 per cent on a wash at 50-60C
- Budgeting your brews – boil only the water you need when you fill the kettle
People are pouring millions of pounds down the drain by wasting water every day, according to a new study.
Despite constant drought warnings and summers of hose pipe bans, the Energy Saving Trust says, homes in the South use 1.3 billion litres of water every day. They say with a few life style changes that amount could be dramatically reduced and energy bills cut.
