Reducing the cost of staying cosy
You don’t need to be Sherlock Holmes, but doing a bit of investigating when it comes to your energy usage can help save you more on your bills.
Could you keep your curtains closed to reduce heat loss through your windows? Is wrapping yourself up in a cosy throw blanket an alternative to turning the heat up five extra degrees? Everyone’s home is different, which is why it pays to experiment with what works best for you – like Simon did.
“When it’s cold, I’ve started to run little tests – like instead of heating my whole flat, I’ll heat one room and keep the doors closed. Or sometimes I’ll set the heater temperature slightly lower and wear a beanie, and see how that’s reflected in the usage information. It’s true what they say—the little things make a difference.”
Staying on top of your usage – and bills – doesn’t have to drain your time or energy. Going digital with online services like My Account, eBilling and the AGL app help streamline otherwise manual tasks, allowing you to keep an eye on how you use your energy, no matter where you are.
“If people are with AGL and haven’t tried the app yet, or signed up for eBilling, I’d encourage them to give it a go. It’s one of the things that drew me to AGL and so far I’m really happy. Now I just need to get through winter.”
