Energy-saving products to reduce utility bills

Contains affiliate links

With the increase in energy prices and a cost-of-living crisis, many of us are looking for ways to cut down on our utility bills. One way to help with this is by using energy-saving products that can reduce the amount of electricity or gas your household uses, thus cutting down on your utility bills.

We have picked a few products that can help you reduce your bills this winter and going forward as well.

LED Bulbs from 4lite

According to new insights from smart lighting gurus at 4lite, soaring energy bills are set to make the LED switchover unavoidable. The latest lightbulb energy cost analysis by 4lite technicians reveals that from October 2022, a single LED lightbulb will cost less than 4p a day to run (based on six hours’ usage), equating to just over £13 a year. For 10 bulbs within the home, this would cost £134 in energy. In comparison, an incandescent bulb would cost 20p a day, or £74 a year per bulb and amounting to an eye-watering £745 for 10 bulbs.

Kate Baker, who is a light and wellness advisor at 4lite, has commented that "LED bulbs are incredibly energy efficient and use considerably less electricity. They may cost a little more initially but the payback is fast – plus they are long lasting so they won't need replacing so often. In addition, taking the next step by upgrading to LED smart bulbs can revolutionize your home lighting as well as save you even more."

Modern LEDs are the most eco-friendly bulbs on the market, using a dazzling 85% less energy. LEDs brighten instantly and power for 25,000 hours or more. Used for six hours a day, that’s nearly 12 years so you’ll not only be saving money on your energy bills, you won’t need to replace them nearly so often. They are also completely free from toxic chemicals and generate virtually no heat so they are cool to touch, safer for the home. Sounds great, isn't it?

Since we started using LED bulbs around the house, we have seen a significant drop in our energy usage and subsequently our energy bills. The switch to LED has a been a wise choice.

If you are not using LED bulbs yet, take a look at 4lite's website to find a product that would work best for your needs.

We recommend the 4lite LED Smart Bulb Wifi & Bluetooth ES (E27) which is a colour changing, tuneable white dimmable LED bulb that can be controlled via the WiZ App and Voice Controlled Smart Devices like Google, Alexa, Siri and Samsung Smart Things.

Silentnight Comfort Control Electric Blanket

Since being introduced to electric blankets around 5 years back, they have always been our go-to item in the colder months. With the electric blanket on, we can easily turn down the bedroom heating. Made from super snuggly fleece material, the electric blanket not only keeps us warm and cosy but also is a great way to save energy and money as the cost of using an electric blanket is much less than having the central heating on at high settings.

You can adjust the heating levels on the electric blanket with the 3 heat settings it provides. Plus it comes with a overheat protection, so you can sleep safely with total peace of mind. A great product that we highly recommend.

You can order it from Amazon.

Energy Saving Countdown Timer can be used to save energy and to reduce your energy bills. This device can be set up to help turn on or off power for a set period of time. Easy to install and easy to use, the timer can help turn off any equipment/gadgets that may accidentally been left on for long periods of time or overnight.
