Household budgets are tighter than ever with increased inflation and unemployment amongst several factors in this economic climate.
With this in mind saving money on household bills is high on the agenda for many families and energy efficiency is a great way to do this.
Energy efficiency is often a misunderstood and over used term but as well as helping the environment it can also cut your household bills.
Two of the most realistic ways to increase energy efficiency in your home are listed below.
KEEP YOUR DOORS IN GOOD SHAPE
The energy efficiency of doors is now so important that the government made all replacement doors carry a minimum U-Value (a measure of how well a building material conducts heat) Your old doors could be leaking heat and on top of that could be a security risk on your property.
Watch our videos on the glazing channel to find out more on replacement doors and providers or alternatively visit www.dhfonline.org.uk
GET DOUBLE GLAZING
This will improve the energy efficiency of home’s and conservatories drastically. Many homes still dont have double glazing and the higher energy efficiency provided by double glazing could reduce your bills by hundreds per year.
Energy efficiency does vary though so feel free to browse our site for the different options on our news page’s and glazing videos.
Home improvement is the theme right now with the downword spiral of house sales people are spending on the home so why not make sure you save some money on Bills whilst upgrading your castle.
