Don’t keep your immersion heater on all the time – it’s cheaper and consumes less energy if water is heated only when needed.       • Turn down the temperature of your hot water at the central heating boiler, at the immersion tank (if your water is heated by electricity), or on your instant water heater.    • Don’t waste energy heating water only to have to add cold water so that it is not too hot to use! 60°C is ideal.     • Take a quick shower rather than a bath – if you use a power shower, remember that in five minutes it can use as much hot water as a bath.

Fix leaking hot water taps as soon as you can.    • Buy a timer for your immersion heater. Set it so that the water is only heated when you need it.        Water heated by an electric immersion heater costs more than 45p an hour. Just turn it on half an hour before you need it – and don’t forget to turn it off afterwards!       • Buy an insulating jacket if your immersion or hot water tank is not insulated. If you have no jacket, about three-quarters of the energy you are buying to heat your hot water is wasted.
