How To Cut Energy Bills In Your Home
There are several ways to cut energy bills in your home and save money!
You can cut energy bills in your home by doing the bare minimum, or what you believe to be the bare minimum.
For example, home heating and cooling have been identified as the leading causes of high utility bills, so they are among the first, if not the first, places to look for cost savings! So, if you’re ready, take a look at the following:
A properly insulated loft can keep heat in. Ensure your loft has around 12 inches (about 270mm) of insulation so heat doesn’t leak out making you colder and in the end making you spend more money on heat!
Hot Water Tank Insulation
If you have an uninsulated/factory insulated water tank, you should consider replacing them with new jackets to save you money. Check to see if your hot water tank has insulation with an R-value of at least 24. If not, consider insulating your water tank. It is estimated that a cover can save your energy bills up to 15% with a typical tank.
Energy Efficient Boiler
For instance, to save more on gas bills, consider trading your old-style non-condensing boiler for a modern condensing one! Research shows it can save you up to £330 a year which is definitely something!
Heating controls allow you to choose when the heating is on and how or where you want warmth. This kind of control is estimated to save you around £55 a year!
Thermostatic Radiator Controls
Thermostatic radiator valves allow you to maintain a constant temperature in a room, they are self-regulating which means you can control temperatures in different rooms so you’re able to turn off heating in rooms that are not in use for instance. This also saves you money as it reduces your heating bill.
