To Keep Your Heating Costs Down Try The Following:
Insulate Your Home – this is something you can do yourself or hire a professional to do. A simple thing to try is to draught proof your windows and doors. You can use insulating materials to fill in gaps under floorboards.
Insulating your loft is relatively inexpensive and will prevent heat from escaping through your roof. There are even grants available that can help pay for loft insulation.
Install Thermal Efficient Rooflights – EOS Rooflights supply quality skylights and flat roof windows. They are extremely energy efficient as they protect against heat loss from the home.
Having a skylight allows much more natural light into your home meaning you need less artificial light and therefore less electricity.
