I'm obsessed with energy saving

This is because the Home Retail Group gave me an energy monitor to see precisely where all the power is being used in my house.

I do now slightly, only slightly, though regret getting spot lights in the lounge and kitchen but I've got energy savers everywhere else.

I do now turn off everything – and I mean everything – except the Sky+ box which infuriatingly has to stay on standby.

I would thoroughly recommend you get yourself one to see where your energy is going mine is made by e.on but many others are available.
