Saving energy in 2017

Looking for new ways to save energy in 2017? Princes LHS are here to help. We’ve put together 10 ways that you can start saving right now.  Read our top 10 tips below and learn how to reduce your monthly bills by staying on top of your energy usage all year round.

Saving at home

Install a room thermostat and start managing your central heating costs

If you own a room thermostat then room temperatures can be managed throughout the day using just one thermostat. If you don’t own a thermostat, then you should really be setting your boiler temperature as low as you’re comfortable with.

What’s best? At Princes we recommend the NEST thermostat which programs itself over time by learning what temperature you like. To find out more about NEST please click here.

Do your washing at a lower temperature and save 1/3 on the cost of a spin cycle

Doing your washing at 30 degrees and not 40 degrees may seem insignificant, but realistically this could save you up to a third on the cost of every spin cycle.

Use central heating to heat one room instead of using your gas fire 

Central heating is the cheaper way to heat a single room. You can even test it yourself by comparing meter readings.

Replace one old light bulb with an energy saving bulb and save £78 over its lifetime

Energy saving bulbs are much more cost efficient and will last up to 12 times longer than a standard light bulb.

Defrost your fridges and freezers every year and help them to run more efficiently

By defrosting your fridge and freezer you can make space for more food. This acts as insulation and lessens the time they have to stay cool.

Install underfloor insulation and heating for older building 

Older building often have timber frames which don’t hold in as much heat. Underfloor heating can be fitted beneath these floors to help them stay warm throughout the year.

Saving at work

No more screen savers

Avoid setting screen savers when your away from your desk by changing the power settings and stop your computer screen from running all day.

Purchase indoor plants – It works!

Plants act as natural air conditioners due to the humidity produced during their respiratory cycle. This can even improve the air quality in your office.

Fix those dripping taps 

The cost of not fixing dripping taps far outweighs the cost of getting someone to service them – Not forgetting the wasted water!

Energy saving workplace

Promote efficiency within your workplace and you will see the rewards every month. You could even appoint someone to take ownership of saving energy for the entire company.

Employ just one of these energy saving tips and you should see a difference in your monthly bills!

  • Princes LHS were brilliant from start to finish. When I contacted them I had received a quote from a rival company that did not appear quite right and really wasn't thought through properly. Princes LHS were the opposite of that. From initial discussions to the fitting process itself (solar PV and a Powerwall 2) everything was done very well and ahead of the agreed schedule. We're now happily producing meaningful power even in the depths of winter & the Powerwall means that we get to use all of it.

  • When Matt came round to discuss solar panels, he really listened to what I was saying, as I wanted a system whereby I could store the solar energy gathered during the day, and then use it when I came home. Whereas other companies told me this was impossible and wanted to sell me geothermal or other technologies, Princes LHS Ltd suggested a battery system, such as those used off-grid. A novel solution.

    I totally recommend them for solar technology

  • We at Grove School had been looking at ways of reducing our energy bills and upon speaking to Simon Lewis at Princes LHS Ltd in Ellesmere, he suggested carrying out a specialised lighting survey to reduce the overall wattage of our existing lighting installation by installing a more efficient type of light fitting with a lower overall wattage.

  • I just wanted to say a very big thanks to the two lovely lads Ryan and Jack who came out yesterday to fit our new bolier. They were very courteous and worked nonstop to ensure that the boiler was up and running for us.

    We have used Princes LHS Ltd in the past for our alarm system and electrics and have always been satisfied. Ryan and Jack are a credit to your company. their professionalism and politeness was very refreshing.
