LEAMINGTON SPA, England, September 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Doesn't time fly? The August Bank Holiday is now past us and before you know it the nights will start drawing in, temperatures will start to lower and the heating will need to be switched on again.
With the big energy suppliers having already hit the headlines this summer with their price rises, it's time to take into account other ways to help save money on your energy usage rather than just chasing prices. Here at First Utility we think smart meters can help you do this.
Research from the Energy Saving Trust has found that smart meters can save you between 5-15% on your energy bill. With a smart meter your electricity usage can be broken down half hourly and gas can be shown daily. All this becomes even more useful when you can break it down and start to see how changes in how you use your household appliances and heating can save you money.
With the Government saying that by 2020 every household in the UK will have a smart meter, they're certainly going to be a hot topic in coming years. For this reason we want to know what you think and we're not just giving a penny for your thoughts, we're giving away £100!
Have you got a smart meter? Have they helped save you money? Do you know the difference between smart meters and In House Display Units? We want to know what you think. Post your comments here and each post will be automatically entered into a prize draw where you could win £100 to spend at Lastminute.com where you can treat yourself to a mini-break this coming winter.
All comments need to be posted by 23:55 BST on Thursday 8th September 2011 to be in with a chance to win.
We'll look forward to hearing from you.
