'Simple steps' can help Brits deal with rising energy bills

'Simple steps' can help Brits deal with rising energy bills
Though gas and electricity rates keep on rising, Brits are able to cut back on their utilities rates by taking small low carbon measures, experts have stated.

Just recently, research carried out by the Energy Saving Trust found that some 33 per cent of all heat lost in the typical UK home is lost through the roof, while broken boilers and open fridge doors costing Brits dear.

However, according to British Eco Energy, UK households are well-equipped to cut back on their energy usage rates, with a number of options open to those looking to cut back on their overheads while simultaneously helping to reduce their carbon impact.

A spokesman for the organisation stated: "Rain harvesting - you can store it, use it for toilets and washing machines, but you can't use it for anything that your mouth goes near.

"If you're on the water meter and you flush the toilet, think how much money you're flushing down the drain all the time."

He added that wind turbines and solar cubes - which desalinate water - are also effective means of slashing energy bills, with these initiatives becoming increasingly popular across the country.
