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: https://www.eonenergy.com/for-your-home/saving-energy/ 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.
Four simple ways to save energy
- Unplug vampire devices or switch off the power bars overnight.
- Use your smart meter.
- Don’t leave the TV or radio going mindlessly for hours.
- Be mindful of your screen time. Turn the TV off when you are not watching. Same for radio too.
4. Register with E.ON. Help compare prices and services while saving energy.

Im not sure if my first comment went through but thanks for sharing your tips! We try to teach the kids all about energy saving by encouraging them to turn off lights and electronics when not in use! 🙂
Wow I never thought about all those “vampire”devices–I’m sure to unplug them TODAY!! thanks 🙂
Some great tips for saving on energy usage/costs! I am always looking to reduce my household expenses!
Yes, I do my best to unplug the vampire devices!! Living in Florida, winter is our time for lower electric bills! Summer is hard though!
These are great tips!! It really is easy to make a few small changes and make a HUGE difference. My hubby makes sure we make as many changes as possible to help save energy without compromising comfort. 🙂

We have a programmable thermostat to make sure that we are not heating/cooling the house when we are not home.

Great tips. I’m really particular with keeping the heating a couple of degrees lower and turning off lights we’re not using.
Vampire devices suck the life out of your electric bill right? Do husband’s count as vampire devices? He wreaks havoc on my electric bill.
Thanks for the tips. Now that we moved to a condo apt. we already save money on energy, but we still think about saving the environment all the time.
Great tips and many we implement in our home now and it really do make a difference in saving both money and energy!
