I’m a real estate guru… There are three things you can do to save hundreds

AN EXPERT has revealed a list of things you can do to save hundreds off your electric bills.

With Britons grappling with a cost-of-living crisis that could last for more than another year, households across the country are looking for more ways to spend less.

But while the energy price cap is set to rise by a further £600 later in October, there are easy ways to minimize spending, according to an expert.

Speaking to The Express, webuyanyhouse.co.uk’s Holly Herbert revealed some changes that could save homeowners hundreds of pounds on their electricity bills.

Here, the real estate expert recommended doing without conventional light bulbs and replacing them with LEDs.

This task, she claimed, could save a household up to £854 a year.

”LED bulbs use a fraction of the electricity compared to regular incandescent bulbs.

“Most LEDs use at least 75 percent less energy, which saves you a lot of money,” explained Holly.

Another simple trick is to move the sofa away from the radiator.

This is because large pieces of furniture absorb heat and prevent it from moving.

So if you put the sofa or armchairs in front of your radiator, the heat will not circulate around the room as well as it should.

But just shifting it can save you up to a whopping £114 a year.

“Putting your sofa even six inches from the radiator allows heat to flow around the room much more effectively,” said Holly.

“This can save you up to 10 percent on your bills.

“The more space between furniture and radiators the better, but since the heat rises, you can do with smaller distances if you don’t have a lot of space in the room.”

The high-flyer also reminded people not to turn on the heating in empty rooms.

“If you have rooms in the house that you are not using, turn off the radiators and close the doors, especially in winter.

“This can cut your bill by up to a third, depending on how many rooms you’re not using,” she pointed out.

According to Holly’s calculations, this could save a family’s annual energy bill by £376.

Moving furniture away from radiators could not only be a good idea, but moving it away from external walls could save you a whopping £1,114 a year.

“If you can arrange your house so that most of the furniture is against the interior walls, you should feel warmer.

“You will feel the warmth throughout the house instead of the cold seeping through from the outside.

“This should allow you to run the heating for shorter periods of time and reduce your bill by five to 10 percent.”

Another tip was shared by Oust’s Rebecca Bland, who suggested using the kettle more effectively.

Sharing her expertise, the guru explained how limescale build-up in kettles “can slow down their efficiency, allowing them to use more energy to boil the same amount of water”.

“Descale your kettle and restore your appliance in eight minutes using Oust’s all-purpose descaler, which removes limescale build-up on the kettle’s inner coils and maintains shorter boil times.

“If you live in a hard water area, descale every three months and in soft water areas every six months.”

It is also important, she emphasized, “not to overfill the kettle”.

“Use only as much water as you need when making tea or coffee,” she said.

If you want to use cheaper methods, try pouring vinegar into your kettle, letting it sit for half an hour and boiling the kettle to get rid of limescale.

According to Holly, it might be time to ditch the regular incandescent bulbs and replace them with LED bulbs
