How can I reduce my gas and electricity bills?

There are two ways to save money on your energy bills:

  1. Pay less for energy by switching to a cheaper energy supplier
  2. Use less energy by monitoring your consumption

Switching suppliers is the easiest way to save money. Most of Ireland’s energy suppliers offer discounted rates to new gas and electricity customers as a sign-up incentive. However, these deals usually expire after 12 months. At this stage, if you don’t switch, your supplier will revert your plan to standard pricing and you’ll pay more for the exact same service.

So, if you remember to switch suppliers every year, you’ll ensure that you’re always on a discounted rate, which means you’ll never pay over the odds and you’ll always get the very best value for your money. No brainer, right?

Another way to lower your energy bills is to consume less. You can do this by figuring out which appliances in your home use the most gas and electricity and then looking for ways to reduce your consumption.

Which appliances use the most electricity?

Electricity is charged per kilowatt hour or kWh. 1 kWh is the amount of energy used by a 1kW electric appliance for 1 hour. Your electricity bill will show you the price you’re being charged per kWh.

The table below shows how much usage you can get out of certain appliances before consuming 1 kWh of electricity.

Appliance Usage
Electric shower 7-10 mins
Immersion water heater 7-10 mins
Cooker (1 large ring) 20-40 mins
Kettle 20-40 mins
Tumble Dryer 20-40 mins
Washing machine 70-100 mins
Dishwater 70-100 mins
Desktop computer and monitor 70-100 mins

What are the national average consumption figures for gas and electricity?

The national average annual consumption figures for electricity and gas per Irish household are 4,200 kWh and 11,000 kWh respectively.
