Energy is vital to nearly all aspects of our daily lives - but we rarely stop to think about how or why we use it. As the price of energy continues to rise, now is the ideal time to consider what you can do to be more energy efficient. The good news is that there are many simple ways to use energy more efficiently that will save money and benefit the environment.
- Much of the heat loss from a house occurs through the windows particularly if they are single glazed. Keep curtains closed at night and ensure that the curtains dont hang over the radiators.
- A reflective foil, backed by insulation if space permits should be fixed behind radiators mounted on external walls.
- A lagging jacket on your hot water cylinder will keep water hotter for longer and pay for itself in 2-3 months.
- If replacing the hot water cylinder, a cylinder with factory applied insulation should be considered. Such insulation is more effective at retaining heat than a lagging jacket, is less easily damaged and cannot be pulled out of place.
- Insulate your attic and save up to 20% on your home heating bill
