London boiler service and repair company advises its clients on how to save on energy bills this autumn and winter.
Online PR News – 12-November-2015 – London – In the winter months, particularly when the clocks go back at the end of October, some of us may find that fuel bills rocket to unexpected levels. However, there is no need to worry – as GPS Property Services have some key advice for their clients with regards to saving money on energy bills.
Invest in home insulation
If the home has not already been insulated, there is a chance that there could be a lot of money wasted on the heating of the building. Cavity wall and loft insulation are available from many companies – sometimes even at a discounted rate thanks to government grants in certain areas – and this can make a huge difference to energy bills. It is thought that by adding loft and wall insulation to a home, £300 could be saved annually on energy bills, which means that within two years the investment will have paid for itself.
Shop around for energy
GPS Property Services know that shopping around for most things is a great idea, so why not for energy, too? Companies are changing their rates and tariffs all the time, meaning that the agreed deal signed up for six years ago may no longer be the best one any longer. By taking a look at the different options that are available, our clients should find that they can cut back on the amount that they’re spending. Some consumers found that they could save anything up to £300 per year by switching their supplier, so it is certainly a move that is worth taking.
Get a boiler service
If something goes wrong with a boiler it can be dangerous and costly, which is why GPS Property Services recommends that their clients have theirs serviced by a reputable company at least once every year. It is important to make sure that the engineer providing the service is Gas Safe registered, as it is important that the job is done professionally.
Turn down the thermostat
Most homes will have the thermostat set to a certain level when the heating is on, yet by simply turning it down by as little as 1 degree GPS Property Services’s clients could save up to £90 on their energy bills per year. This is a small amount of heat to lose so probably wouldn’t even be noticed, yet it can make a huge difference, meaning that it is certainly worth a try.
Deal with any draughts
Anywhere where air can get into the home can cause it to lose heat, and this includes under doors and round window frames. Draught proofing is a great step towards retaining the heat in the home, and this means that not as much money will have to be spent on heating.
Ultimately, GPS Property Services understands that saving money on energy bills can make a huge difference, which is why the above advice has been provided. By putting steps in place, the home can become as energy friendly as possible, and this will save clients a lot of money in the long term – particularly over the winter months.
