Today's energy saving tip ...

Turn lights off when a room is empty. Use natural light as much as possible. If you use a light for an average of four hours or more a day, fit an energy saving light bulb. It will use around a quarter of the electricity and will last ten times longer than an ordinary bulb.

Save up to £300 with these home energy saving tips ...

Like most households across the UK, you're probably starting notice the effect of recent energy price rises on your monthly budget. Industry figures have shown that wholesale gas prices have increased by more than 70% in 2008 alone.

On the plus side though, these staggering price hikes have created a highly competitive energy market with energy suppliers desperate to maintain existing customers and tempt new ones away from their competitors to maintain profits.

This buyers market together with the fact that much of our energy consumption is wasted, means that most UK homes can save up to 300 a year by simply comparing energy prices and making small changes to daily habits.

Are you paying too much for gas and electricity?

The difference between the cheapest and most expensive gas and electricity supplier can be as much as 100 per year.

If you've never changed your energy supplier or not compared prices recently, you could make huge savings with minimal effort by switching to a more competitive company.

Its simple to compare energy suppliers online and switching is easier than ever. But like any consumer purchase, you should follow a few guidelines before signing on the dotted line. Ask yourself these questions when comparing energy companies:

1.Are there any hidden charges?
2.Do the prices quoted include VAT?
3.Are you eligible for any special offers, incentives or discounts?
4.What is the supplier's complaints record?

You don't have to switch supplier to make savings. If you pay your energy bills by cheque you could save 50-60 per year if you pay by direct debit instead. Switching to an online account can save you even more.

Small changes equal big energy savings

The biggest long-term savings come from changing your energy habits and being more energy efficient around the home.

As you start to see savings its a good idea to re-invest this money in energy saving products and appliances to reduce your energy consumption even further. The long-term savings will more than pay for the cost of purchasing and installing these measures.

Start using these no-cost energy saving tips around your home and measure the reduction in your next few energy bills. The more you apply the more you'll save.
