Why Energy Efficiency is so Important for Your Home

As homeowners we're all told to be energy-efficient, but what exactly does this mean? And why does it help? 

We've revealed all in this short blog post.

How can you be energy-efficient?

There are many ways that you can improve the energy-efficiency of your home.

  • Install a brand new A+ rated condensing boiler
  • Install a smart thermostat so you can see where you're using energy in your home
  • Install a smart metre as recommended by the government
  • Turn off unnecessary water
  • Limit space heater use
  • Insulate your home
  • Lag your pipes

... You get the idea. There are lots of ways that you can improve the energy-efficiency of your home, but what's the point? Does this actually help in any way, shape or form? 

Yes, it does. 

And here's three ways improving the energy-efficiency of your home can benefit you and everybody else.

Lower your energy bills

Let's face it... water bills, electricity bills, heating bills, they all take up a huge percentage of our monthly pay cheque, and we hate paying them.

So what's the best way to reduce them? Improve the energy-efficiency of your home!

On average homeowners in the UK can save between 5-30% on their energy bills if they apply any of the above energy-efficient tactics to their home. If you're at the top end of that 25-30% scale, you're looking at saving £100's every month... imagine how much you'll save in a decade!

Spend more wisely and reduce your energy bills!

Improve the planet

There's 65 millions of us in the UK contributing to CO2 emissions being pumped into the air, ultimately damaging our environment. 

And we're afraid to say that if you've got an old non-condensing boiler, you're one of the worst culprits!

By installing an A+ rated condensing boiler you won't just be able to reduce your monthly heating bills, you can be proud that you're doing your bit to save the planet. 

Increase the value of your home

If you're worried that you're selling your home in the near future, and that by improving the energy-efficiency of your home it'll be a complete waste of money, worry no longer. 

Having an energy-efficient home is a huge selling point!
