As energy prices rise, many of us are looking for ways to use less energy at home, but how do we do it? The Energy Price Guarantee set by Government will reduce the unit cost of electricity and gas. A typical household in Great Britain pays, on average, around £2,500 a year on their energy bill. This is set for the next two years, from 1 October 2022.
Let’s see what home investment can save you money this year.
Energy price crisis for homeowners
Even with the Energy Price Guarantee, it is still a lot of money for many of us and not something we can simply absorb into our everyday living costs. So, with the unknown of how long this energy crisis will last, long-term home solutions seem like an excellent option to save money.
We have researched some of the best home improvements you can make to give you a thermally efficient home and reduce those pesky bills down to size for the long run.
Our top 5 home improvements to reduce energy usage
Installing energy-efficient double glazing will help lower your energy bills because it will reduce the amount of heat escaping your home. Making your doors, windows, and conservatories more energy efficient will cut your energy bills and lower your carbon footprint.
Replacement windows for energy efficiency
Energy efficient glazing is both double and triple glazing. These are windows with two or more glass panes in a sealed framed unit. Energy-efficient windows could help reduce your energy bills and your carbon footprint, giving you a long-term sustainable choice.
New doors for better thermal performance
Updating your entrance doors gives many benefits, none more than improving your home’s thermal performance. Due to outdated materials and ineffective seals, your home can lose 10-20% of heat through old windows and doors.
Conservatories and energy efficiency
A modern, well-designed conservatory can be incredibly energy efficient – improving the comfort level in your home. A newly installed conservatory can help you save on your monthly energy bill and give you extra living space at a much cheaper cost than a full home extension.
Roof lanterns for improved energy efficiency
A roof lantern is a great choice to keep your home warmer. Installing a high-performance and thermal efficient lantern roof, it will help trap natural heat inside your space for longer while cold air is left outside.
