Save £312 on heating bills with a warmer duvet

Typical consumers could save £312 a year on their gas heating bills by using a warmer duvet allowing them to turn their heating off for a few extra hours each night.

In a study this week by the they found that by having a warmer duvet you could easily turn the heating off for 3 extra hours per evening. Saving a typical household £312 per year.

Whilst the exact amount of savings will vary depending on a range of factors such as boiler efficiency, how high the heating is set and the thermal efficiency of the house, what is clear that there are potentially big savings to be made.

For those people who have the heating on all night the savings could be even higher by turning it off for more than 3 hours!
There is also an environmental impact too, with an estimated reduction of around 700kg of CO2 per year. The conducted the following experiment.

They tested how much gas was used over a 3 hour period to heat a typical 4 bed detached house. They found that by using a really warm 13.5 tog down duvet you could switch the heating off for 3 hours less around bedtime and still have a great nights sleep. Based on the British Gas Clear and Simple tariff (the most popular UK tariff). This equated to a saving of £1.73 per day. Over a 6 month period (180 days) this equated to a £312 saving. Phew!

Jonathan Attwood a spokesperson for said. ‘Many of us have not changed or even cleaned our duvet for years. By replacing our old duvet with a thermally efficient 13.5 tog duvet we would need less heating at night, saving a substantial amount of money whilst still having a super nights sleep!
