Bovis homes are designed and built to maximise your comfort, while minimising energy consumption and costs. If you want to reduce your energy bills even further here are a few tips:

Energy efficient light bulbs use up to 90% less energy than traditional bulbs, and they last much longer as well. A typical LED bulb will go on shining for up to 25,000 hours - that’s 25 years for an average household.

Leaving lots of devices on standby could add up to £80 a year to your bills according to the Energy Saving Trust.

‘A’ rated goods that carry the energy saving recommended logo are amongst the top 20 per cent most efficient available.

The warmer food is when it goes into the fridge, the more energy it takes to cool. Defrosting your fridge regularly and keeping an eye on the door seals will also keep your energy bills down.

Washing machines, tumble dryers and dishwashers use much less energy on low temperature settings. It also pays to wash full loads - a fully-loaded dishwasher uses less energy and water than washing up by hand.

No matter how efficient your tumble dryer may be, you can't beat fresh air and sunshine. Drying laundry outside doesn't use a kilowatt of energy and its free!

Use a pan that’s the same size as the cooker ring to prevent heat loss. Put a lid on your saucepan to heat the contents faster. Remember pressure cookers, steamers and microwaves use less energy than ovens and hobs.
