Turning up the thermostat will heat your home quicker

Your home will heat up at the same rate regardless, so you're better to set the thermostat to the desired temperature to prevent wasting energy in overheating your abode. Fight the urge, even if your home feels freezing.

It's cheaper to keep your heating running on low 


The idea that the heating uses more energy to turn itself on and warm up isn't going to save money compared to leaving the heating running unnecessarily. Instead, use your timers to make the most of your heating for when people are in the home – smart heating systems can make this an even easier way to control and ensure you're not left in the cold.

Your water needs to be constantly heated

Water tanks are well insulated, so hot water will stay hot in it for hours. No need to keep the water on all day for fear of not having enough for a quick shower or to do the dishes.
