Watch How Much Energy You Use This Autumn and Winter
With autumn and winter on the way, we start to take more notice of our money. Trying to make things go even further including gas and heating. One of the biggest expenses in the winter time of the year is all the energy bills. Instead of having to worry about this autumn and winter why not follow our tips on ways that you can save money on your energy bills.
Check Your Homes Energy Efficiency
In order to make the best of your energy usage, you will need to check that your current property is energy efficient. A home that is energy efficient will use less central heating and retain heat better than a home that is not. Furthermore, this is what helps to save money on your energy bills.
Insulate Your Loft
Ensure that your current loft space is properly insulated. A lot of heat is lost via the roof of your home. This can be a big contribution to your homes energy efficiency. Furthermore, if the loft is insulated correctly your home will stay warmer longer saving your money on energy bills.
Heat Escaping from Windows
Heat can escape from old and tired windows, this includes single glazed and old double glazed units. This can be big on energy costs for homeowners as running the heating while the heat escapes can use up a lot of energy. Furthermore, increasing your gas bills.
Upgrade Old Windows
Upgrading your old single glazed windows or old double glazed units with newer units will help to save money on energy bills. New uPVC and aluminum windows are more energy efficient than ever before. Both available in double and triple glazing. As well as, new designs and colours to choose from there is plenty to pick when it comes to matching a window to your property. New windows installed will help reduce heat loss from your home and keep your property warmer during the winter months.
