How To Save Energy At Home

We’re all looking for ways on how to save energy at home so you can be kinder to the environment whilst saving money on bills, so we’ve put together a few tips and tricks to help you do exactly that.
 

Tip #1: Invest In Thermal Lined Window Coverings

A lot of heat in homes is actually lost through windows, especially during the colder months of the year, which is most of the year here in the UK! Rather than turning up your heating, which can become quite costly as well as not very energy efficient, why not invest in thermal lined blinds or curtains?
 
Our beautifully made thermal lined blinds and curtains are designed to keep in mind style, practicality and most importantly keeping in the heat. Our range of thermal roller blinds, thermal vertical blinds and thermal lined curtains offer plenty of variety, depending on your preference and style, so there’s something for everyone.
 
The choices make great options for those who have single glazed windows or secondary glazing, so you can avoid spending money on a double glazing. Thermal lined blinds would also work fantastic in conservatory’s, open plan living spaces and even children’s nurseries and bedrooms so you can be guaranteed your home will stay warm and toasty.

Tip #2: Install Eco Underfloor Heating

If you are planning your next home project or renovation, you may want to think about installing eco underfloor heating systems. By having these in your home you save a lot of energy as your home is likely to get warmer, more efficiently. This could also result in a reduction in heating bills, which means you can spend your money elsewhere (like on our beautiful blinds).

Tip #3: Use A 30% Wash Cycle

You’ve probably heard this tip before but it is a quick and easy switch to make. If you run your washing machine on a 30 degree cycle, less energy is required which means you're saving more energy in every wash that you do. Whether you are a family of 4 or living alone, you’ll notice a difference in your bills by making this one small quick change to your weekly routine.

Tip #4: Install A Smart Meter

Why not check how much energy you are using by installing a smart meter in your home? Most companies offer this for free, as many individuals are on a journey to save more on their energy bills. Seeing how much energy you use on a daily basis could result in you making small lifestyle changes, which help bring this figure lower - making saving money quicker.
