Today officially marks the start of autumn and the weather has felt somewhat autumnal over the past couple of weeks.

The changing of seasons will have got some homeowners worrying about their energy bills and whether they will be able to afford paying them.

If you’re one of them then TradeMark has some fantastic and simple energy saving tips for you to follow:

  1. Switch off all the lights in your house whenever it is left empty at night.
  2. Unplug all appliances or switch them off at the wall when not in use or fully charged.

  4. Reduce the amount of time you spend in the shower.
  5. Put an extra sheet or thicker duvet on your bed.

  9. Replace all traditional lightbulbs for energy-saving lightbulbs.
