Sajni Shah commenting on...

Energy prices during the cost-of-living crisis

"Soaring energy costs are making life extremely difficult for many households. It’s important to be aware that if you’re really struggling you need to seek help. Don’t hesitate to contact your energy supplier to see if you’re eligible for help with your energy bills and also check your eligibility for benefits than can help with the bills." 

The benefits of using energy saving light bulbs

“Traditional light bulbs, known as halogen bulbs, work by passing an electric current through a metal filament. When the metal gets hot enough, it produces light. However, a lot of the electricity used to light the bulb is lost as heat.

“Although they cost more to buy initially, energy saving light bulbs can use up to 80 per cent less electricity than a traditional bulb, which could result in savings on your energy bills. Typically, they also last far longer than standard halogen bulbs, so you shouldn't have to replace them as often.”

 

Which appliances use the most energy

"Electric hobs tend to be more efficient at cooking than gas hobs, but the cost of electricity is higher so they can also cost more to run – around 0.71kWh per use. Microwaves are cheaper and more energy efficient than stoves at warming or reheating food. Meanwhile, slow cookers are a very energy efficient way of cooking and preparing food in larger batches helps to cut energy use, as well as time spent in the kitchen.’’
