What can we do in order to improve state of the environment and reduce the cost of energy?
INSULATION AND GLAZING
Around a third of all the heat lost in an un-insulated home is lost through the walls. Cavity wall insulation is a fantastic way to significantly reduce the amount of energy you need to heat your home and could save you around €115 a year on your fuel bills.
SOLID WALL INSULATION
If you have solid walls you can either insulate them with external or internal insulation, saving you around €400 a year on your energy bills.
Insulating beneath floorboards will reduce heating bills and improve the comfort of your home. You could save around €50 a year by insulating your floors. Gaps and cracks around floors and skirting boards are easy to fill yourself using a tube of sealant - reducing heating bills by around a further €20 a year.
Insulating your loft could save you around €150 per year on your energy bills if you don't have any insulation there at the moment.
Using strips and excluders to draught proof around leaky door and window frames can save around €25 a year on heating bills.
TANKS AND PIPE INSULATION
Both tank and pipe insulation keep your water hotter for longer by reducing the amount of heat that escapes.
Double glazing cuts heat lost through windows by half and installing Energy Saving Recommended double glazing could save around €135 a year on your heating bills. Double glazing works by trapping air between two panes of glass creating an insulating barrier that reduces heat loss, noise and condensation.
