Simple Change To How You Use The Kettle Could Save You Money

This month most people have seen an huge rise in bills, and while living costs as a whole have increased it's energy where people are really feeling it.

Energy bills include electricity and heating, so of course it's to be expected that kitchen appliances will have an impact on this.

While some costs are pretty much unavoidable - we're not about to tell you to turn your fridge and freezer off or never use your oven.

Although, you may be able to save yourself a bit of money by avoiding overstocking your fridge and freezer, as the more products they contain the harder it'll have to work to ensure this are kept at their optimum temperature.

You can also reduce oven costs with regular cleaning.

Talking to Metro, Claire Horne, the energy saving expert at Kesseler revealed that kettles are one of the appliances that could be having the biggest impact on your wallet.

"Research shows that boiling your full kettle just four times a day can add £60 to your energy bill" Claire says, adding: "Being mindful with how much water you really need means less electricity waste and can help save water too."

"I'm not just going to stop drinking tea, so how can I keep my bills down?" We hear you ask. Don't worry, Claire has a solution to this too.

"By not switching your kettle off at the mains, electricity will continue to run through, adding £10 to your annual bill." Says Claire, "avoid this unnecessary expense by simply switching off the kettle at the plug whenever you aren’t using it."
