Let the fight begin ……

10Jul09

Just like most of the population, I guess we’ve been too busy (insert excuse) to devote some time and logic in seriously reducing our energy bill whilst maintaining a non-naked level of comfort.

Okay, that makes us sound rather environmentally uncaring.

Let’s get some things straight, we have done all the upfront investment and eco-buying decisions for years.  The house is fairly big but is well insulated, fully kitted out with low energy lighting, high efficiency boiler, efficient wood burning stove, A+ appliances.

Even so, the utility costs make you cuss and adopt a ostrich like pose.  So what we gonna do ?

I reckon during 2007 we nearly hit 2k for gas/electric split roughly 50:50, so that’s our benchmark. This does not include wood which easily ‘would’ add on £500 plus to the gas.

Dear dairy will now post our efforts and observations.
