How can I save energy when using other kitchen appliances?

  • Only boil the amount of water you need:  This will save energy and time, as boiling a full kettle takes longer and uses more energy than boiling just the amount you need.

  • Regularly descale your kettle: A build-up of limescale can reduce the efficiency of your kettle, so make sure to descale it regularly, especially if you live in a hard water area.

  • Consider a temperature-control kettle: This will allow you to heat the water to the exact temperature you need, rather than boiling it unnecessarily hot.
  • Keep the oven door closed: Every time you open the oven door, heat escapes, and the oven has to use more energy to get back up to the desired temperature. Try to avoid opening the oven door unnecessarily.

  • Use the right burner: When cooking on a hob, use the right-sized burner for the pot or pan you are using. A small pot on a large burner wastes energy.

  • Clean your appliances: Regularly cleaning your appliances helps to keep them running efficiently. Dust and debris can reduce the airflow in your oven, making it work harder and use more energy.
