Our latest competition winner

Posted on 15 October 2015

Thank you to everybody who took part in our September Energy Saving Tips competition. We received hundreds of top tips, but there can only be one winner!

Congratulations to Ann-Marie Howard from Rugeley, winner of our September Energy Saving Tips competition. 

Ann-Marie’s top tip is perfect for this time of year, as the chilly autumn air means we’ll soon return to using the power of the tumble dryer to dry our clothes, towels and sheets.

Ann-Marie told us: ‘With winter coming up you use the tumble dryer more often. Place two tennis balls with washing inside your dryer – it helps to dry the washing faster and doesn't cause any damage.’ 

How does it work? Well, the balls bounce around the drum. This keeps your laundry moving, stops it from clumping together, and helps the warm air to circulate and dry your clothes faster! 

As a reward for her excellent energy saving tip, Ann-Marie has won £150. That’s the typical saving made by installing loft insulation, to help keep your home warmer for longer during the cold winter months. 

We hope this top tip will go on to help more customers save money on their energy bills! 

And remember: if you’d like to try it out for yourself, we recommend you use specially made tumble drying balls, which can be purchased at most major supermarkets for a few pounds.
