Cut The Cost Of Heating Your Warrington Home

When the temperature starts to fall, we all want to switch on the heating. With fuel bills going up each year, keeping your home warm can be expensive. Most of us spend between £88 and £140 every single month on our fuel bills. Here are some ways to cut the cost of heating your Warrington home.

There are only really two ways to cut the cost of heating your Warrington home:

  1. Reducing the cost of your energy
  2. Reducing your energy consumption

To lower the cost of your energy, you can seek out the deals on independent energy comparison. Switching energy supplier is simple and straightforward so you should do so every year if you are not tied into a fixed term deal websites.

Saving energy

Of course, you could just put on a jumper and turn off all the lights when you leave the room but to really make a difference to your bills, you must do more to make your home as energy-efficient as possible.

Make sure your doors and windows fit

More than a tenth of heat loss takes place through the gaps around doors and windows. Draft-proofing your windows and doors can save up to £50 per year. Keeping heat in means, you can turn the heating down, which will save you a lot more cash.

Plug any holes in the walls

Where cables or pipes come in or out of your house, there are holes in the walls. The caulk that sealed them degrades over time and may need repairing.

Make sure your home is insulated

A lot of councils offer grants to help with insulation, check with them for details of any schemes.

Use the sun

The sun’s rays bring heat into your home even in winter. Keep curtains open during the daytime, on the southern side of your property. Cut back any trees blocking the light.

Get your central heating serviced

If you have not had it serviced yet this year by plumbers Warrington based, then your boiler may not be running efficiently. Ask Warrington central heating engineers like L&W Heating and Plumbing Warrington plumbers to give it a check over and help you cut the cost of heating your Warrington home.
