Monday 21st January marks the start of the Big Energy Saving Week, a national campaign carried out by the charity Citizen’s Advice to help people cut their energy bills. Unfortunately, winter is always a very expensive season thanks to Christmas, New Year and the icy, cold weather.
This week’s main focus is to raise public awareness to ensure that you get all of the financial support that you are entitled to and most importantly, save money on your energy bills!
We have decided to get involved too! We are sharing some of our top tips to help you save money. What does windows, doors and conservatories have to do with energy saving we hear you say? Well, read on for more information!
1. Block the breeze!
Your windows and doors should seal properly to make sure the cold weather stays outside. Here at Coral Windows, we have always been at the forefront in providing the best possible products and services to our customers.
Our triple glazing windows add an extra layer of toughened glass, helping you to feel safer in your own home. It also adds extra warmth by retaining natural heat generated by the sun along with any heat your home produces.
2. Conservatories are thermally efficient
A conservatory can be designed to be thermally efficient by using high-quality double-glazed doors which of course, our conservatories are.
Adding a conservatory to your home, otherwise known as the buffer zone, means that any heat that escapes from your home into the conservatory will generate a warmer room in the conservatory.
The heat which is captured in the conservatory can then re-heat the main house.
3. Energy efficient doors
Doors also have a huge impact on energy efficiency in your home.
Cold draughts are caused when the heat escapes through the doors, consequently meaning higher heating bills. All of our doors are energy efficient and our expert fitters will ensure there are no gaps that the cold air can creep through!
There are many more ways that you can save money on your energy bills such as turning the lights off when you’re not using them, switching your energy supplier for the tariff that suits you and even shorter shower time.
