Most of the UK has been affected recently by the rising energy bills from the big 6 energy suppliers and it’s only set to get worse as prices are tipped to keep rising over the next few years. Of course switching providers to make sure you get the best possible deal is essential, but there are other methods to cutting down on your monthly bill, some of which we can help you out with!
Assess your glazing
Up to a massive 25% of your homes heat can be lost through the windows in your property, especially if they’re not efficient enough to contain the heat. Installing energy efficient replacement windows can have a very noticeable effect on your bills. Of course there is the initial cost to worry about but the savings over the next few years could be well worth it. Not only do energy efficient windows do their utmost to keep in the heat that you generate within your home, they also harness the power of a FREE power source, the sun.
Windows work on rating scale from G – A, A being the most energy efficient that we stock, according to current building regulations all replacement windows must be C or above. These windows are virtually maintenance free and even come with an impressive 10 year guarantee.
Put the Wood (or UPVC) in the hole!
Similar to your homes windows, your doors can be the source of massive heat loss, up to 15% in fact. Replacing a draughty old door with a new, thermally efficient model can again hack that terrifying energy bill down to a manageable size! Choose between our UPVC or Rock Door range which in addition to being more thermally efficient also look great and are extremely secure!
Add a porch?
This may not be the answer for everybody simply looking to bring down their bills, but if you had always considered having a little extra space in the form of an entrance porch then there are definite advantages in that area. The extra space acts like a barrier to the outside weather, the same way a flask works! Avoid that sharp draught when leaving and entering the house. Besides its thermal advantages a porch can look great on your property and even increase the house price as a whole. Should you ever think of moving you may be happy of the extra value.
