21.10.14 It's Big Energy Saving Week

As it gets colder we begin to pile on the extra clothes layers – the winter coat, the woolly scarf and some natty headwear – all with the aim of keeping our body heat in and the cold weather out. But how many of us get our homes ready too? This week (20 – 24 October) is Big Energy Saving Week and it's a timely reminder to consider how we can do the same for our homes. The Department of Energy and Climate Change DECC), the Energy Saving Trust and Citizens Advice have come together for the annual Energy Saving Week campaign to encourage all of us to take some simple steps at home this Winter to save us both energy and money when it comes to keeping warm. A good start is DECC's really useful Keep Warm This Winter guide which includes information about the Government's Warm Home Discount and Winter Fuel Payments schemes as well as various energy saving tips.
