Well it turns out we can. At Property Rescue we've found that there are a number of simple changes you can implement around the house that could see you save hundreds of pounds every year!
It could be the simplest adjustments like fully loading a washing machine or purchasing thermally lined curtains for the bedroom, but they'll make all the difference, not to mention keeping the family much warmer throughout the year.
Our energy saving infographic details ways to save money in every room of the home, even the garage where a large amount of heat could be escaping, through small gaps and cracks. Around 20% of heat in our abodes is lost this way, with drafts causing the majority of the problems. Door seals, foams, and chalks cost as little as £5 each and can make a huge difference from the place we store our car, right up to the loft where we store our boxes and Christmas decorations.
There are some changes which could save even bigger amounts. The country as a whole uses approximately 4,600 kWh of electricity per household every year with the government wanting to cut that by 11% by the year 2020. We can contribute to this by making some important changes to our home, like installing loft insulation, solar panels or energy efficient double glazing. Whilst these will require initial investment up front you will benefit from the savings in just a few years.
There are dozens of ways we can improve our finances just by making a few adjustments in the home. To find out more take a tour around the Property Rescue house and discover just what you can do to make your bills that little bit less daunting.
