Cutting heat-loss can cut bills
The recent news that British Gas intends to drop its energy bills will be music to the ears of homeowners around the country.
While heating bills will drop temporarily, price comparison site moneysupermarket.com has advised consumers to invest in products that will keep the heat in, helping to save energy and maximise the benefit of the price cuts.
Utilities manager Scott Byrom explained that the easiest way to reduce energy wastage was to reduce heat-loss.
"Watch out for draughts around doors (keyholes, letter boxes, gaps in doors and windows). Heat escaping your home is money wasted," he said.
"Double-glazing is pricey to install but will make a difference to bills over time. Heat-loss through windows is cut by a whopping 50 per cent – saving around £100 a year on bills."
The same is true for conservatories; extra investment in a quality conservatory can save money in the long run by reducing heat-loss and eliminating draughts.
