Martin Lewis shared a simple tip that could save you £100 on your energy bill.
That Money Saving Expert The founder was speaking on his ITV The Martin Lewis Money Show on Tuesday night as he urged Britons to check the “supply temperature” of their boiler.
The supply temperature — the temperature at which your boiler heats water before sending it to the radiators — should be set at 60 degrees, but many are programmed much higher, the cash-saving guru explained.
He said: “Normally it should be around 60 degrees but most people’s boilers are set higher – that’s really inefficient.
“You can turn that down, it won’t affect the heat in your house, it will still be the same temperature.
“Your hot water temperature will not be affected by this – it may take a little longer to reach the maximum temperature.
“But it can cut your bill by £100 a year and is worth everyone doing.”
He added: “This is an absolute no-brainer and anyone with a combi kettle should try it.”
