Getting the most out of your device

Your in-home display can help you understand how, when and where you use energy in your home. You can make informed choices about how to be more energy-efficient and save money.

As your in-home display has a built-in rechargeable battery and connects wirelessly to your smart meter, you can walk around your home and investigate what your appliances cost to run and where you can make savings. Generally, you'll find that things containing a heating element can be more expensive to run: tumble dryers and fan heaters for example. But don't just take our word for it, you've now got all the tools you need to check it out yourself.

Press the SO FAR TODAY button until you get to the NOW option to see your instant electricity use. Turn each appliance on and off and see how much your costs change. You can determine approximately how much electricity each appliance uses.

We have some helpful advice on energy efficiency here.
