So, to make sure you can focus on being festive, we’ve got a few handy tips to help you cut the Christmas costs.

Staff awareness

Getting your staff on board with energy efficiency is a brilliant, cost-effective way to keep your bills down. By simply switching off lights, shutting doors and making sure appliances are turned off, you can see a real impact on your bills.

We’ve even put together a handy course you can use to get the ball rolling: Take the course

Get your bills checked

We know this one might sound obvious, but the late nights and the influx of extra shoppers means bills can often be overlooked at this time of year.

With the colder weather meaning higher energy usage (never mind all the Christmas lights!), it’s super important to make you’re paying more than you need to. One of our energy experts can check your bill to make sure you haven’t overpaid- if you have, they’ll even arrange a refund on your behalf, simply get in touch.

 Go Smart

By using new internet technology, you can monitor and control everything from your heating to your lighting (even the ones on the tree!) With the use of super clever tech, you set and schedule your systems and appliances, so no more worrying if you left the heating on, simply switch it off using your phone or tablet.
