We've found a few handy energy-saving gadgets that can help make a difference in the amount of energy you use in your daily life.
Automatic Radiator Bleeder
An automatic radiator bleeder automatically releases the built-up air in your radiator so your central heating system is always working as efficiently as possible.
If you don't bleed your radiators regularly, the efficiency of the radiator decreases proportionately to the amount of air that has built up inside it, meaning you use a lot more energy while getting a lot less heat.
Average cost: £10 or less
Energy saving letterbox cover
Noticed that draught coming through your letterbox? Reduce the amount of heat lost through your letterbox by investing in a magnetic flap letterbox or a simple brush lined one can help reduce the cold airing breezing through.
Average cost: £20 - £30
Radiator foil / radiator reflectors

Average cost: £5 - £20
