Cut Your Home Bills In Half With These Upgrades

Monday, June 19, 2017


Are you tired of your energy bills costing you a fortune each month, or each six months, depending on what type of tariff you’re on? Well, you’re not alone, and I’m sure if you research saving money on energy at home online, you’re going to find a lot of neat little tricks. For instance, some people recommend that you don’t want drain the bath and reuse the water. Or, that you using the extra boiled water in the kettle to wash the dishes. I, on the other hand, think the best way to save money on your home is to get a few add-ons, make some improvements and turn your house into an eco-friendly dream. There are several ways to do that so let’s start by thinking about tech. 

Hey, That’s A Smart Choice!
Ah, tech, where would we be without it? It helps us stay in contact with people across the world and gives us thousands of songs in our pocket. Now, it can help you save money on your bills! You might have guessed that I’m talking about a smart meter. Smart meters record your daily energy usage, promptly alerting you as to how much you’ve spent through the day. The best part is that if one day your expense suddenly balloons it’s fairly easy to figure out which outdated appliance is costing you a fortune. To be honest, it’s probably going to be something like the tumble drier. They cost a fortune, and this is particularly true for the older models. 

Traffic...What Traffic?
Blanketing the sound of cars whizzing past outside your home is just one of the advantages of upgrading your windows to double of even triple glazing. Aside from keeping the noise out, they keep the heat in! That’s definitely going to be noticeable come winter when you’ll no longer have to put the thermostat at the highest setting. According to companies like Your Price Express, you can replace your windows in no time at all. In fact, you can get them sorted out in no more than five days! 

The Sun’ll Come Out... Today!
And, when it does, wouldn’t it be great if you could harness its energy? This used to only be an option for the rich business owners. Now, anyone can install solar panels on their roof and benefit from solar energy. You don’t have to pay for it, and you can use it to light and power your home. At the very least, this is going to trim your energy bills right down. There is the matter of installation costs, but the government and environmental groups are offering subsidies to homeowners willing to make this change. 

Money Trickling Down The Drain? 
It might be if your shower pump is a little too powerful. But, you can always fix this by replacing it with a slightly weaker model. That way, you’ll use less water when you shower, and that will drive your water meter charge right down. It might just take a little time to adjust to the lower pressure. 

So, what do you think? Are you interested in making these changes to your home?
