Over Christmas, with people staying, we may have gone off the rails a little, but now that the New Year has arrived we have refocused again and are keeping an eye on our energy consumption.
The main changes I have made since having a smart meter installed are:
- Only heating the room that I am in (rather than the whole house.)
- Not filling the kettle to the brim when I'm only having one cup of tea (or coffee!)
- Turning the lights off when we aren't in a room.
We are yet to receive our first Smart Enegry Report. It will look something like this.
You can watch the video telling you more about the Smart Energy reports below, but in essence they provide insights on how you use energy in your house as well as providing you with tips on how to save energy.
I am particularly interested to see how we compare on energy consumption with similar households in our area.
If you are an existing British Gas customer you can register your interest in receiving a free smart meter upgrade.

Don't forget I also have a giveaway running to win a junior sleeping bag from sleeping bags outlet.
We were already British Gas customers, so the smart meter installation was free of charge, but I have been compensated for writing this post to raise awareness of their scheme
