Using the most energy efficient products would save the UK billions in energy bills, according to the Energy Saving Trust (EST).
The non-profit organisation that aims to help consumers reduce the emissions from their home pointed out that simply buying the most energy efficient fridge could cut almost £200 from a domestic energy bill.
Adrian Arnold, from the EST said: "If you are buying an A Rated fridge for example compared with a G rated fridge which is the worst rating, you could save £186 across a year on your electricity bill, let alone your reduced CO2 emissions that contribute to climate change."
He added that as well as saving billions in energy bills, using the most energy efficient rated product would also cut the nations power consumption by the equivalent of 780,000 homes a year.
Other methods which could help cut energy use and emissions include replacing boilers, installing insulation and turning the thermostat down one degree.
Taking shorter showers can also help reduce bills as the Consumer Council for Water claims one quarter of domestic energy bills pay for water heating.
