Energy bills are something homeowners need to pay each month. During winter, the cost of these soars and there are some things that can help cut costs. Making a few small changes will help Britons save money on bills, an expert revealed.

Take control of heating
Adding a thermostat and programmer into a room can stop energy waste and slash bills by around 10 percent, Martyn Bridges, Director of Technical Communication and Product Management at Worcester Bosch, explained.

“If you’re out at work, only turn it on or up when needed – perhaps 30 minutes or so before you return home.”
Stop heat escaping
Martin said: “As well as avoiding heat escaping, it’s also important to allow natural heat in.
“Ensure you open any curtains on the south side of the house during the day, as this will increase the solar gain into the house.
“At night, ensure they’re all closed properly to keep out the cold.”
