The average family could save between £50 and £90 a year just by remembering to turn appliances off ( if they aren't doing it already).
If you turn a light off for even a few seconds, you'll save more energy than it takes to switch on again. That applies to all light bulb types.
Nearly all electrical appliances can be turned-off at the plug without upsetting their systems.
The only exceptions are satellite and digital TV recorders. They should be left plugged-in for recording programmes.
Check the instructions on any appliances you're not sure about.
