    Amazing advice from @Rebecca ,

    I recently got some draft excluders myself and already can tell the difference not having that draft from the doors and windows creep in and they cost me hardly anything,

    These little tips really do go a long way and can save you lots 💰,

    I know I've said it before but LED lights really are so great and very very energy efficient I can not stop recommending them especially if your E7 or E10 and don't have gas. ⚡

    Great advice @Dean 🤗 - do you know I have had LED bulbs in my home for years now and never had to change once in the 5 years I have been in this house! They last forever!

    Also, on the subject of draft excluders etc - as I live in an old Victorian house - all the windows and doors let in so much cold air - if I ever have the heating on (which I will not put on yet as it's too early) then the heat just creeps right out. I have invested in draft tape for my window gaps and door gaps - works wonders!

    I also have cold air that somehow manages to get under the front door, again where the house is so old. I pop a draft excluder there and then when my heating is on, it doesn't leak out heat and money!

    Also - turning radiators off by the radiator/heating system in those given rooms you don't use will save money and energy. I never ever use my dining room unless I am entertaining. I always have the radiator off in that room, when the heating is on - as its a waste of heating and money!

    Hope this helps everyone!
