When it comes to winter it is the one time of year that you want to make sure that as much heat is being retained in your home as possible. Not only does this mean you are warmer but it can have a positive impact on your energy usage which then in turn has a positive impact on your energy bills. Having an energy efficient home is the best way to ensure that you aren’t spending money unnecessarily on your energy that is literally flying out of the window.
Here are some of the areas that you will want to check to ensure that warm air is not leaking out or cold air being dragged into the home.
Lights – it might seem a strange place to look but the area around your light fittings can be a place where draughts occur. Your lightbulbs create heat as they work and you want to keep as much of this heat in the room as possible. One of the best ways to do this is with Downlight Covers
Windows – check around your window seals to make sure that they are intact and operating as they should. If you find that the seals are worn and broken you should get these replaced to help prevent cold air from coming into your home. You should also check that you have double glazing as again this is an easy way to retain as much of the heat in your home as possible in the cold weather.
