Woman turning down thermostat on radiatorQ: My energy bills are going up all the time. How can I save energy and therefore save money?

A: This week is the perfect time to think about saving energy. Citizens Advice is running Big Energy Saving Week  from 22-27 October 2012, which is a national campaign to help people cut their fuel bills and get all the financial support they are entitled to.

They have joined forces with Energy Saving Trust to give worried consumers like you expert tips and information on how to cut the amount of energy they use, such as insulating your house properly, keeping thermostats turned down and only using dishwashers when they are full.

Big Energy Saving Week is co-funded by the big six energy companies, many of whom have raised their prices over the past few weeks, so it’s important to take all the advice you can and save now.

Of course, one of the best ways to save money on energy bills is to make sure you’re on the lowest tariff you can be. Compare prices at sites such as Money Supermarket and uSwitch. You could save yourself £100s a year.
