4 Tips on how to stay warm and save money this winter

With winter approaching, it’s time to prepare for the colder months and ensure your home remains cozy without skyrocketing energy bills.

1. Optimise Your Heating

Use a programmable thermostat to set your heating most efficiently. Lower the temperature when you’re out of the house and about an hour before you go to bed, increasing it shortly before you wake up or return home. This simple adjustment can lead to significant savings on your heating bills.

2. Inspect Heating Appliances

Before the deep chill sets in, have your heating appliances inspected. Old and inefficient heaters can consume more electricity. Ozora Electrical can assess your appliances for efficiency and safety, and suggest upgrades or maintenance that could save you money and keep you safer this winter.

3. Switch to Energy-Efficient Lighting

As the days get shorter, you’ll likely be using more artificial lighting. Replace incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs, which use up to 75% less energy and last 25 times longer, enhancing your home’s energy efficiency and reducing your electricity bills.

4. Schedule an Electrical Safety Check

Ensure your home’s electrical system is capable of handling increased winter demands. An electrical safety check by Ozora Electrical can identify potential hazards like overloaded circuits, outdated wiring, and inefficient appliances. Booking a safety check can prevent electrical accidents and increase your system’s efficiency.
