You can install this yourself or get a qualified and registered electrician like M & E Electrical to fit it for you.
2. Get your home electrics checked

3. Check your tariff
Take a look at your electricity bill and see how much you are paying. If its a bit hard to understand, don’t worry. Ring up your supplier and ask them what rate you are on and if there are any cheaper deals.
Then take a look at www.uswitch.com and see if you can save money by changing to a different supplier
4. Turn off your electrical equipment
There is no point in leaving items turned on if no body is using them. So turn off the TV when your not watching it and turn off the light when you don’t need it.
5. Optimise your voltage
The average UK voltage s between 240 volts and 250 volts. However most electrical equipment only require 220 volts to 230 volts. Meaning that the remaining energy is wasted.
M & E Electrical can fit a voltage optimisation unit meaning we can smooth out the incoming voltage to your property. A saving of 12%-15% can be achieved by using an optimisation unit. Give us a call for details on how to book your installation 0114 4000 099
Turn off your oven 2-5 minutes before the end of cooking time. The heat inside the oven will continue to cook your food and you wont be using any energy at all. Just keep the oven door closed to keep the heat in.
