9 Unexpected Energy (and Money) Savers

Here are a few surprising and simple ways to cut your energy bill this season.

Put lamps in the corners: Did you know you can switch to a lower wattage bulb in a lamp or lower its dimmer switch and not lose a noticeable amount of light? It’s all about placement. When a lamp is placed in a corner, the light reflects off the adjoining walls, which makes the room lighter and brighter. Additionally, during morning hours, you can use natural light instead of artificial illumination to reduce your energy bill. However, to manage the heat, you may have to adopt solutions like secondary glazing, especially for Listed Buildings, since it can increase the energy efficiency of the building.
