This is advice everyone can use in their daily lives, there is no trick to it and it will help you save a lot of money in the long run.
Heating Bill - If your going to be out most of the day then its a waste of money to have your heating on all that time. Put the timer for the heating to come on ten minutes before you are due to arrive home so your house will still be nice and warm. There is no need to have your heating on all the time. Stick it on for an hour just as you are going to bed and you will be warm all night.
Electricity - This is very simple, if your not in a room there is no need to have a light on. This has been the rule since I was growing up and it means our electric bill isn’t sky high. Same goes for the TV, not watching it? Turn it off. I’ve never understood the reason why people have the television running all day while they are in the house, you won’t suffer just because you don’t have some background noise. Learn to enjoy the silence, its a rare thing that is completely undervalued.
