The most important question that households ask is whether they can cut their energy bills without sacrificing their comfort and routine. The answer is yes, and here’s how:
Heat the same, waste less
Poor insulation can lead to increased heat loss. Did you know old properties can lose up to 30% of their heat through a poorly insulated under-roof area? An energy-efficient interior can turn a cold home into a cosy nest with no cost increase. Additionally, you might find that you can heat the same with a smaller size boiler.
Smart thermostats and controls can keep your heating system under control. Mobile apps can help manage heating needs and costs.
Don’t waste water
Reducing shower time by only 1 minute can save up to £7 per person at the end of the year. Timing your shower can have a huge impact on your energy bill! Besides, there will be less complaining about the empty water tank or running out of warm water!
Similarly, you can also keep washing up waste to a minimum by filling up a bowl rather than using running water.
Reach out to a boiler expert
Servicing and maintaining your boiler ensure it can remain as energy efficient as possible. Yet, it’s fair to say that old boilers are likely to be less energy efficient. When it’s time to change your boiler, it’s a good idea to compare different options.
Similarly, it’s worth comparing options when it comes to tank-based boilers, such as oil and LPG boilers. Depending on the location of your tank, it could affect the way the heat travels inside your home, in which case a compact tank would be a better option.
We hope these tips help you control your energy bills without making your home uncomfortable.
