There are two ways to save money on your gas and electricity bills:
Switching suppliers is the easiest way to save money on your electricity and gas bills.
There are 10 suppliers in the Irish market and each of them offers big discounts and cashback incentives to new customers who switch. However, these discounts usually expire after 12 months so it’s important to switch every year to make sure you’re always on the cheapest price plan available.
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.
The table below shows you which appliances in your home use the most electricity and are therefore the most expensive to run.
It’s useful to note that Ireland’s national average annual consumption is 4,200 kWh, which means that the national average daily consumption is 11.5 kWh. The table below show how much usage you can get out of certain appliances before consuming 1 kWh of electricity.
|Electric shower||7-10 mins|
|Immersion water heater||7-10 mins|
|Cooker (1 large ring)||20-40 mins|
|Tumble dryer||20-40 mins|
|Washing machine||70-100 mins|
|Desktop computer and monitor||4-6 hours|
The national average annual consumption figures for electricity and gas per Irish household are 4,200 kWh and 11,000 kWh respectively.
