Move furniture away from external walls
Homeowners will feel the cold more if they’re sat by an external wall, so if possible, try to position furniture away from the outside of the house.
Holly said: “If you can arrange your house so that most of the furniture sits against internal walls, you should feel warmer. You’ll feel the heat from throughout the house, rather than the cold seeping through from outside.
“This should allow you to have the heating on for shorter periods of time and reduce your bill by five to 10 percent, equivalent to £1,114 a year.”
Corner sofas are particularly effective at making a room feel warmer as they leave less empty space for draughts to build. Ensure that at least one length of the sofa is against an internal wall to feel the most benefit.
Replace regular light bulbs with LEDs
One of the easiest changes Britons can make, but one that could save them nearly £1,000 a year, is to replace standard light bulbs with LED alternatives.
LED bulbs come in all shapes and sizes and are incredibly energy-efficient, which does wonders for the wallet.
