Energy saving guide

The little things that make a big difference

Electricity is a precious energy source and we all wish to safeguard it in order to lower our energy bills and reduce the impact on the environment, whilst maintaining the ideal comfort in our home. 

Here are some tips on how to minimise energy consumption:

  • Switch off your appliances when not needed.  Look out for De'Longhi heaters with energy-saving features such as timers and ECO functions.

  • Remember not to leave the appliances on standby, especially when you are not at home.

  • Close your curtains at dusk to keep the heat in and leave them open during the day to allow sunlight to come in. Keep doors and windows closed if heating is required. When The weather is cold, air from outside can have a big impact on energy consumption.

  • Turn your thermostat down, especially during nighttime. Reducing room temperature by just 1°C could cut your heating bills by up to 10 percent.

    Set your thermostat as low as is comfortable. The thermostat can be set much lower when the home or any other room is unoccupied.

  • Wear warm clothing and in layers even whilst indoors during cold weather. Some modern fabrics used in new clothes are ideal for keeping your body heat in and tempso you feel warmer.

  • Heat the room and not the house: Remember that zone heating is energy efficient because it heats only those areas of your house in which there are people.

    If possible upgrade the insulation in your home. In particular the attic and all outside walls.  Loft insulation is a quick and relatively inexpensive way to significantly reduce heat loss from the home.

    Place the heater close to you to maximise the temperature accuracy of the thermostat.

  • Keep the doors of unoccupied rooms closed in order to avoid heat loss.
