Draught excluders, proper sealant, insulating strips, or even blankets can be used as draught excluders to prevent this from occurring. Make sure your home is properly insulatedIf your home is effectively insulated, you may save a lot of money on your energy expenses. Did you know that if your roof isn't properly insulated, the bulk of your heat is lost? To avoid this, make sure the roof, cavity walls, and even solid walls are well insulated. Insulation under your flooring can help you save even more money on your energy bills.Book a Boiler ServiceAnnual boiler servicing can undoubtedly help you save money on your energy expenses. Because soot can gradually build up on the internal components of your boiler, significantly compromising its efficiency, it's possible that your boiler will become inefficient without you even recognising it over time and with continuous use. Regular servicing can help avoid soot accumulation by allowing your boiler to run more efficiently and consume less fuel! Improved efficiency allows you to save money on energy while simultaneously lowering your carbon footprint: it's a win-win situation!Please do not hesitate to contact our gas engineers now if you have any questions about any of our boiler or central heating services that we provide throughout Hertfordshire, including Harpenden, Welwyn Garden City, and St Albans.
