Usage Breakdown and other great tools
Every household has a 'someone' – someone who never quite remembers to turn the light off, or someone who cranks up the heating when they could just grab a blanket. Our Usage Breakdown tool helps you keep your 'someone' in check. Find it either in the app or online.

Tips to save energy and money
With Energy IQ you have access to a range of tips to help you save energy. Here’s a sneak peek.
Add a dry towel to the dryer
Pop a thick, dry towel in your next load, items will dry faster as the towel will absorb moisture. Also avoid overloading, clothes won’t tumble-dry properly.
Recycle firewood ash
Compost is naturally acidic, so wood ash is a great addition to your compost bins, plus it adds calcium. Lightly sprinkle a layer of ash as you build up green and brown layers. Be careful to just sprinkle it though – too much will ruin it.
What a rock star!
A customer told us they painted rocks in their backyard with glow-in-the-dark paint. They absorb sunlight during the day and give their garden a soft light through the evening.
