  • Energy saving tips

Save money on your energy bills and help benefit the environment with these handy top tips.

Tip 1:

Turn down the thermostat! If you turn down the thermostat by just 1% you could potentially save up to £200.00 a year. People don’t realise that this very small adjustment can make all the difference to your heating bill.

Tip 2:

Use the timer on your central heating, and set it for the morning and evening rather than leaving it on all day. Why would you want to have central heating on when you are not at the property? If you have got a timer why not set it half an hour before you come home and half an hour before you go to sleep? You will find that this will reduce your bill quite substantially.

Tip 3:

Save energy on making your cup of tea. Put cold water into a mug first then pour it into the kettle. Gage the correct amount you need for a number of cups. This will save a huge amount over the year as you wont be boiling water  you don’t need.

Top 4:

When cooking meals in the oven, try and share it with a house mate and cook multiple meals at once to save energy. You may find it would be easier to cook something the night before ready for lunch the next day.

Tip 5:

Try and use less hot water. Having a shower instead of a bath result in huge saving over a year.

Tip 6:

Turn your washing machine down. If you reduce the temperature to 30 degrees you save energy quite dramatically.

Tip 7:

Turn appliances off at the plug to save an average £30 a year. Households with more gadgets could see an annual savings reach between £50-£80 per annum. If you leave your TV on standby it is still using electricity. Turn it off at the plug and you will find you are making an instant saving.

Tip 8:

Wasting warm water charges you twice. Once for the water, and once for heating it. Unnecessarily adding to your bill.

We wish you well in trying to save money for your energy bills.

Have been very accommodating and helpful when calling agents. They have been very helpful in being able to secure a house for students.

Harringtons have been incredibly helpful and supportive of us as new renters and they have been super efficient in getting all of the documents sent through and signed in such a short period of time. Thank you!

we chose this letting agents as they chose a good bills company that is much cheaper than other agents. When viewing houses the staff were very friendly and have been very helpful in answering our questions and making the process as easy as possible.

I would rate Harringtons Lettings a 5/5. Very lovely on the phone and very quick and easy to communicate with via email. Any problems have been resolved in no time at all. So far so good!I found Harringtons via Rightmove.

Although I have only been renting with Harringtons for a short period of time, I have had nothing but a positive experience. From viewing to admin updates. The admin team especially are very polite and quick to respond and I have no doubt that the rest of my tenancy will run smoothly. I would recommend to anyone considering renting in brighton.

Professional communication with tenant although entirely impersonal. There was a bigger disconnect in their communication with the landlord in most cases, which seemed to be either slow or non-existent (discovered after contacting the landlord directly).Property was full of spider webs on day 1 despite apparently being professionally cleaned. Took a day off of work to clean it on move out day, leaving it cleaner than when it received but still had to pay part of the deposit for professional cleaning.It has been a while since I have rented, but I'll avoid letting agencies completely now if this is anything close to the average renting experience.

Great professionalism/communciation from the start up until the end of my tenancy. Definitely set the standards for what agencies should be like. Highly recommend to those within Brighton.

I have rented with Harringtons Lettings before and have always found the agents to be quick, efficient, friendly and helpful. I loved their service so much I have chosen to rent with Harringtons again. Faultless 😊
