Many of us are always looking for new ways to cut our spending. Rather than missing out on life’s little luxuries, a great way to save cash is by reducing the amount you spend on energy bills. Using less energy helps the environment, too. Follow these top tips to reduce your energy bills all year round, and start saving today.
1 – Update your windows and doors
Badly fitted windows and doors can let lots of cold air into your house, resulting in lots of energy being used to keep your home warm. Single glazed windows are also very inefficient at preventing heat loss. By investing in new double glazed windows, you can retain a more consistent room temperature, and keep heating costs down. Changing the style of your windows to enable easier opening, or installing patio doors can also help to keep your house cooler in the summer. Contact us at Safeguard Glass to discuss your requirements and receive a tailored quote to meet your needs.
2 – Remember to switch off!
Switching off a light when you leave a room is just the first step. Many electrical appliances, including televisions, stereo systems and computer peripherals, use energy even when not in use. If the item has a digital display, or clock, or power light, it will be constantly using energy and costing you money. By switching off all appliances at the socket when not in use, you can see a dramatic fall in your energy bills all year round.
3 – Insulate your home
Building insulation is proven to reduce energy costs by keeping homes cooler in the summer, and warmer in the winter. Many homes, offices, and other buildings can be insulated in a variety of ways, including cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, and under-floor insulation. Contact a surveyor to discover how insulation can help you to reduce your energy bills.
These ideas, and many others, can help keep you comfortable in your home, and reduce the amount you spend on your energy bills throughout the year. Put these top tips into action and see the positive effects on your next energy bill.
