Could social media improve energy saving knowledge

A high number of people are now consulting social media platforms to find out how they can save money through appliances such as sink accessories, research shows.

It has been discovered that an average of 255,000 questions on the topic of home energy efficiency are shared by the UK's Twitter and Facebook users every day, according to research by Thinksulation.com.

Lydia Sharples from Thinkinsulation said: "Social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook are now a huge part of everyday life and provide a natural platform for people looking for a range of advice."

Measures such as closing curtains at night can help people to become more energy efficient and save roughly £300 per year, Ms Sharples added.

Her remarks come after UK Blinds claimed that a combination of blinds and curtains could help to offer the most efficient lighting option for residents in the UK.

The group also said that people lose a significant amount of heat through windows.ADNFCR-1321-ID-800569557-ADNFCR
