As the cost of gas and electricity bills is predicted to soar, families could take measures to ensure that they are paying as little as possible.

The Daily Telegraph asserts that there are measures individuals can take reduce their gas and electricity outgoings, many of which could have a positive effect on the environment.

According to the Energy Saving Trust, switching off electrical equipment rather than leaving it on standby could reduce electricity bills by eight percent, while wearing a jumper and turning down the thermostat one degree will cut heating bills by ten percent.

Opting for eco-friendly appliances can also have an impact on gas and electricity costs, the newspaper claims.

It advises considering appliances' energy rating, which should be noted on the label, when making a purchase.
