Hot Tips to save money this winter.

With recent events having an impact on the price of energy this winter, we have put together some top tips to help you heat your home for less.

Cover the draughts

Most homes are likely to have the odd gap here or there where those cold winter draughts can sneak in.

A simple trick is to cover them up with a cushion draught excluder that you can buy from any homeware store or online. This will help to reduce those sudden chills or small breezes that get into your home and encourage the need to turn up the thermostat.

Lay down a rug

Rugs are great tools to help insulate your home and help to trap that cold air underneath. They can also look great too so it’s an added bonus.

A runner in the hallway will also have that same effect which is often the coldest place in the home.

Reduce your Thermostat

You may wonder why we suggest turning your Thermostat down in the winter but by reducing your thermostat down by one can help to maintain a warm home but also save on your heating bills.

Have your boiler serviced

Having your boiler serviced can help with its efficiency and improve the central heating costs. A well-maintained boiler burns fuel more efficiently than one that isn’t.

As claimed by our friends at the Energy Saving Trust, heating accounts for about 53% of what you spend in a year in energy bills so an efficient boiler makes a big difference.
