How to significantly reduce your fuel bill

Autumn is most definitely upon us and the mornings are chilly (and the evening too) its only going to get colder. Sigh

Autumn and Winter can be gorgeous with rosy cheeked kids, red berries, Chirstmas lights and bright frosty or misty days. It can also be really expensive on your fuel bill

Recent research from Calor, 73 per cent of people spend the majority of their time in the living room, but a huge 58 per cent of households are still heating the whole house. I have to admit I often do this when I am working from home and it  is not a smart solution!

So much wasted energy and wasted money.

It  a much better idea to turn the heating down or off and just heat the one room you are all gathering in with  a better location specific option, perhaps a portable, spot heater from Calor?


It makes so much more sense and can cost as little as £1 a night to heat one room. It can also help you pre-budget for the heat you need  this winter as you know roughly what you are going to be spending. This such a cost effective fuel solution. With package prices, including the gas starting from as little as £89.99, Calor portable heaters offer an affordable, pay-as-you go solution that lets you be in control of the bills.

When I was a kid we didn’t even have central heating just one heater in one room and lots of hot water bottles we managed just fine.

It really pays to be smart, creative and to plan ahead  when it comes to fuel bills as they can really sting and make winter a lot more miserable than in needs to be!

    Hi Becky,

    Nice post and it is so true that people often heat the whole house!

    In our house we have thermo valves on our radiators which allows us to control the heat setting for each radiator.
    It’s an ideal solution as some radiators will be turned off, the one in the living room would be set high and the ones in the kitchen and bedroom would be set low.

    Having said that it is always handy to keep a portable heater on hand in case the heating system stops working. There’s nothing worse than being in a cold house!

    just be careful if you use a portable gas heater. if not serviced they can give off carbon monoxide just like any gas fire. I heat one room and keep doors closed. Then half an hour before I go to bed I open the doors to my bed room the heat rises and takes the chill of my bed room.
