With longer, warmer days and more time spent outdoors, our energy usage gets a little break of its own during the summer months. However, there are still lots of little ways you can make the most of the good times, while saving both energy and money.

Here’s how to get saving whilst the sun’s out, from the every day to the forward-thinking:

1. Embrace cooler showers 

Be brave! By dropping your shower a few degrees (even for the last couple of minutes for a refreshing kick) you can shake up your morning routine and start saving on the £80 a year spent on heating showers. You could even enjoy it.

2. Soak up the heat 

Everyone loves a freebie. Keep your curtains open during sunny days to soak up that free heat for your home.

3. Break the cycle

Give your tumble dryer a break and enjoy lovely fresh laundry with a line dry instead (just make sure you check the forecast). And if you’re limited on space, even drying on a clothes horse indoors is much quicker in warmer weather.

4. Summer nights

Lighting up your garden for enjoying summer evenings doesn’t have to strain your energy usage. Efficient LED or solar-powered bulbs create all the atmosphere without the cost.
