Understanding and reducing home heat loss
- From poorly insulated walls and roofs to numerous gaps in windows and doors, there are so many ways that heat can easily escape from your home, leaving you switching the heating to ‘constant’ and driving up the cost of your utility bills.
- These costs will add up substantially over time and the truth is that you could quite easily take preventative action to keep heating costs down and allow your home to retain warmth.
- Simple measures like pulling the drapes at night or covering window and door gaps with draughtproofing strips will reduce heating costs.
- However, it’s worth investing in quality insulation for your walls, attic and roof, as the energy savings from these would pay you back within 5-6 years.
