Have you ever sat wondering if you switched off the oven/hair straighteners/iron or similar? Apparently this is called appliance anxiety and according to new research by British Gas up to 30 million of us could be stricken with the condition. Joking aside, I know I’m not alone in walking out the door and later fretting about not having flicked all the relevant switches.
What can you do about it? Well, British Gas themselves offer smart meters which help you keep track of what’s using energy. Not only will a quick glance at the screen tell you if you’ve switched off the dangerous appliances but it will also show you where you may be wasting energy. Prudent in these austere times.
To promote this British Gas are giving away a super fancy eco steam iron worth £76.60 to one lucky reader. It not only glides through the ironing with minimum energy but it will switch off if you forget to. I’m not one for ironing myself but I to wield a steam iron when sewing because then it is pressing and not a chore at all.
