How To Improve Home Energy Efficiency

We should all be doing our part to conserve energy, and the easiest way to do that is to make our homes more energy-efficient.

You should want to be a big fan of home improvements. They’re not only an investment in your property, but they can also help you save money. For example, if your home needs insulation, you can reduce your energy bills by up to 15%. If you’re building a new home, you can choose a more energy efficient style.

Some people think that home improvements are a waste of money, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. There are a number of ways to create home improvements that are actually beneficial to the environment and your wallet. For example, you can install solar panels to generate your own electricity. This will actually help to lower your monthly expenses.

It certainly pays to shop around and compare suppliers and deals across the market so that you can take control of your energy bill, to secure a competitive fixed rate contract.

Roof, Loft, And Wall Insulation

Over 25% of heat can be lost in a poorly insulated property. When you have the correct insulation installed this will pay for itself over and over again in its 40 year lifetime.

A sign of a poorly insulated roof can be seen in very cold seasons when property roofs carry frost or snow. Look for roofs that show little or no sign indicates that heat is leaking up into the roof to melt the settling frost or snow.

Lighting

With better choices, a home can still use the same amount of light for a lot less money. Upgrading light fittings can make a big difference to bills over time.

Boiler

Windows
