This week I sponsored the 'Get Winter Ready' event by British Gas, which is the launch of their winter advice campaign.
With winter on the way, it is important to take advantage of free help and support with energy bills. There are a number of simple steps that can be taken to make sure bills are kept down and the home is kept warm.
British Gas have rolled out free loft and cavity wall insulation for eligible households, and you don't need to be a British Gas customer to sign up.
They have also rolled out smart meters which enable you to see how much energy you are using down to the penny, and identify where savings can be made.
I asked whether the smart meter could measure how much energy solar panels create within a household. I was told this will be enabled by the next generation of smart meter and so I look forward to that!
