As the weather gets colder in autumn and winter, it’s only inevitable that we’ll all turn the heating on sooner or later. That’s absolutely fine – you don’t want to be sitting in the cold, after all. But over time, the costs start to stack up, leaving you searching for ways to save money on your energy bills.
The good news? There are ways to reduce them. In this post, we’ll look at four ways to save on your energy bills without having to compromise on the temperature of your home.
It has to be said, the easiest way to save on your energy bills is by searching around for the best deal. Far too many of us assume that all the energy providers will offer the same deal. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
According to comparison site finder, switching energy suppliers could save you an average of £320 a year. Despite this, a third of Brits (34%) have never made the switch! To say it takes just a few minutes, and costs nothing, this is certainly a good way to save on your energy bills.
An air source heat pump is an innovative way to provide clean, renewable and almost cost-free energy for your home. It works by taking natural heat from the outside air and converting it into hot water for your home’s heating system.
With estimated savings of up to £1,350 per year for an average 4-bed detached home, it’s certainly a great way to shrink those bills. However, it’s also backed by the Renewable Heat Incentive, which could provide an additional £1,000+ every year from the Government.
Another good way to save on energy bills is simply by keeping heat in your home. That doesn’t just mean shutting doors and windows. Every home has a thermal envelope, comprising the roof, floors and walls, which is responsible for separating the inside temperature of your home from the weather outside.
Loft insulation, wall insulation and even floor insulation can save you money on your energy bills by preventing heat from escaping, meaning you don’t need to turn on the energy as often to maintain a comfortable temperature.
Similar to an air source heat pump, solar panels make you less dependent on the energy that’s costing you money. However, while heat pumps work for your home’s heating, solar panels can help with the electricity.
By converting the sun’s energy into electricity, solar panels can save you over £600 a year on average. Needless to say, this will also reduce your carbon footprint and give your home a back-up power source during power cuts.
