    #29 ~ Is It Cheaper to Leave Your Heating on Constantly?

    Should you be running your heating constantly or are you better off using your timer?



    Roger gives us his money-saving advice to reduce your fuel bills this winter.



    Energy myth-busting with Money Saving Expert:



    The energy market is in crisis. There are no cheap energy deals due to record wholesale prices (what providers pay), so using less is the best way to save right now.



    There are obvious ways to cut your usage, such as wearing jumpers and turning lights off, but this guide aims to crack the less-obvious energy conundrums, including if it's cheaper to keep your heating on low all day, or whether painting your radiators black can help.

AJH - Uk ,

Thank you!!

We have moved home and the amount of work we have to do is daunting. Having you both rabbiting on in the background is making the work so much easier and pleasanter.

I love it when you talk about mistakes and struggles... we are living the ‘dream’ here!!

Very nice

Love your work Roger and Robin and now this podcast is fantastic. So nice to just hear simple chat, putting the world the rights and discussing the trades. It’s like being down the pub with you.
Can’t go back further than episode 5 for some reason on iPhone podcasts app...

Great Podcast

Really appreciate this podcast and YouTube channel. I’m an electrician by trade but am fixing my own house up and have found the plumbing and joinery videos have really helped me. Sometimes it’s hard to know/find out what the best way of doing something is, your videos and information make it a lot easier. Thanks
