Here is a list of the top home improvements you can make to save energy, retain heat and reduce those dreaded fuel bills:
Get a new energy efficient boiler
If you have a boiler over 15 years old, it may be worth thinking about an upgrade. 'A' rated condensing boilers not only use less energy but come with electronic programmers to help you regulate heat at a click of a button.
Cavity wall insulation is so effective that it will pay for itself over and over again. Did you know that around a third of a household’s heat is lost through the walls. By insulating your walls you could save up to £150 per year!
Top up your loft insulation
By installing 270mm of insulation in your loft, you could protect yourself against rising fuel bills and keep your home warmer. If everyone in the UK installed 270mm of loft insulation, we could collectively save around £520 million and nearly three million tonnes of CO2 every year. That's enough to fill Wembley Stadium nearly 380 times!
Consider External Wall Insulation
There are millions of homes around the UK with solid walls or non-conventional building structures, which means standard cavity wall insulation is not feasible. Solid wall insulation also known as external wall insulation, can help improve the look and feel of your home as well as save you up to £490 a year on your fuel bills.
One of the best ways to save energy is to generate your own! Solar PV panels are made up of a series of cells that create an electric field once exposed to daylight. This current is passed through a module called an inverter that converts the energy into usable domestic electricity.
