Saving Money and Energy: Four Simple Tips

This is a sponsored post on behalf of E.ON. It is extremely relevant to my readers in the UK. There are tips throughout about ways to save energy applicable to all my readers regardless of their location.
Winter is here to stay and with it comes potentially high heat and energy bills. Shorter days mean more lights and less access to outdoor activity means more time spent surfing Youtube, or parked on a sofa playing video games. It’s easy to see how lights stay on longer. You fall into a pattern of staying warm and cocooning for the cold months and then you open your mail and get the shock of your life with energy, heat and electricity bills that equal the cost of rent or mortgage. That alone is enough to send your blood pressure through the roof. So what’s a person to do? How is a family to save budget-wise this time of year? Luckily the E.ON Saving Energy Toolkit site: can help.
E.ON helps you save money – the number one need for most customers in today’s economic climate – and equally important, it also helps people use less energy. EON helps customers ‘waste less’ energy now, and in the future, in homes, businesses and communities.
Many people don’t think they can reduce their energy usage, without reducing their comfort levels. But with a little regular attention and a small change in your behaviour as a homeowner it can be done without sacrificing the sanctuary of your home. High energy bills can be stressful.
The E.ON Saving Energy Toolkit is helping customers conserve energy and save money. This toolkit is made up of a number of parts, the most interesting of which is an energy comparison tool which allows E.ON customers to compare their energy usage with similar households in their area.
The tool is an engagement platform that allows energy usage comparison, with a positive environmental message that users can share with others.
Existing customers who are registered online can access the Energy Saving profiling tool, where they can discover how to reduce energy use by comparing with similar homes in their area.  Drawing on either their actual consumption data or the responses to questions about their home, relevant advice and solutions are provided.
As one of the leading energy suppliers to UK customers, E.ON recognises it has a duty to make sure that everyone has all the information they need to work out the best way to help save money and use no more energy than they need.
