How To Improve Your Energy Efficiency In Winter

3 Tips To Improve Energy Efficiency

With the cost of living rising each year, people are rushing to find ways of making their home more energy-efficient. High energy bills and cold living spaces are usually telling signs of an inefficient home.

What Should I Do?

The best way to work out where the problems are in your home is from October to January. That is because this is the time of the year when draughts are noticeable. 

Once you have identified these problems, you can start to take the necessary measure to improve your home. By following these three simple steps, you have the opportunity to boost your efficiency and reduce the price of your monthly bills. 

There are many ways to improve your energy-efficiency, such as switching off appliances that are not in use. Below we have outlined three of the most effective ways of enhancing your energy-efficiency.

Compare Energy Providers

Many people allow their energy supplier to roll over onto a standard tariff. These rates tend to be more expensive and could leave you out of pocket. 

There are so many options to choose from nowadays. It can be hard to know where to start when choosing the right energy supplier. That is why research is crucial to get you the best deal. You can also use companies such as Look After My Bills. These will routinely search for the best deals and set up your account with the provider.

According to Money Super Market, switching energy provider could save you up to £286.

Regular Boiler Servicing

Conducting a yearly boiler service means that your gas is performing effectively and efficiently. The best time to have this done is just before winter sets in, leaving you with a fully functioning boiler throughout the winter months.

Getting this work carried out by a professional boiler service engineer is essential as they will be able to identify any problems that may need fixing. Plus, regular servicing will ensure your boiler is working efficiently and could save you money on energy bills.

Replace Old Doors And Old Windows

Old doors and windows can be one of the main ways that heat escapes from the home. Upgrading old wooden doors and windows with uPVC can be a cost-effective option to reduce heat loss. That is because we manufacture these doors with a better seal which can limit draughts.

Our windows come with A-rated double glazing as standard. That means you will have an effective barrier against the outdoors and your home will be noticeably warmer than before.

If you are worried about the cost of replacing all the windows and doors in your home, you may consider replacing the windows in your main living spaces. Think about your bedrooms and the areas you spend most of the time. That can reduce the cost of installation and create a more efficient home.

At St Helens Windows, we have a variety of energy-efficient windows and doors to offer. If you want to know more about our window and doors, call our team on 01744 611 203. Our team can help answer any questions that you may have.
