Snow, Heating and Insulation

With the snow season upon us, many people are looking for ways to save money on their energy bills. The simple answer is to turn the heating down and wear a jumper, but this isn’t very comfortable and in extreme cold not very healthy either! Aside from turning your heating up to full and coping with the energy bill another day, there are a few things you can do to reduce energy costs and still have a warm home. Here are a few of the most popular.

There are places in your home that are colder than others, and these will often suck up the heat from other areas forcing you to turn the heating up. For example, if you have a conservatory that is poorly insulated then heating it as well as the rest of the house is sure to lower your energy efficiency by quite a lot. Instead, you might want to consider insulating the conservatory more or placing a fill in heater there so that it doesn’t take energy from the boiler.

Another example is the loft. Some people have a loft conversion and this means that the area is probably well insulated, but most people lose a lot of energy through the roof. A bit of insulation there can make all the difference and cut down on your costs considerably.

Of course, there is always the option of upgrading your hearing system. The better the heating system is, the less likely it is that you’ll be wasting energy. Modern boilers are a lot more efficient than older ones, so although they are expensive to replace it might work out to be better for your bank balance in the long run. This is something you need to work out before you buy though, otherwise you are taking a big risk.
