From Boiler Replacement To Insulation: A Brief Guide on How To Save Money on Your Heating Bills

In News by Martina

With constantly rising energy bills, it’s no wonder why many homeowners across Britain are looking for ways to save money. As well as the financial value of reducing bills, tempering your consumption also has a positive impact on the environment. From investing in boiler replacement to improving insulation, we’ve created a brief guide to saving.

1. Boiler Replacement

If you have an old boiler in your home, you can save plenty on your bills in the long-run by installing a newer model. Upgrading from a G-rated boiler to an A-rated boiler can save you hundreds of pounds a year. Improving your central heating system should be your first port of call when it comes to energy efficiency.

2. Insulation Upgrades

As well as investing in boiler replacement, you can reduce bills by improving insulation. Insulation retains the heat generated in the home and, as such, ensuring your insulation is up to scratch will increase the heat retained. In turn, this will reduce your reliance on your boiler and save you money. Insulating your loft alone can save you more than £100 per year.

3. Change Habits

Simply changing some habits can make a huge difference in how much you spend on your bills. For example, turning down the thermostat a couple of degrees, monitoring your consumption, turning off standby appliances and washing at a lower temperature can all make a difference.

4. Install Efficient Appliances

Finally, investing in more efficient appliances will save plenty on your annual bills. Look for A+++ appliances like fridges and washing machines to save potentially hundreds of pounds over their lifetimes.
