Energy Saving

How to save money on energy heating bills

If your walls and loft aren't properly insulated you could be paying far to much to heat your home. Likewise if you dont have double glazing your heating bill could be paying to heat the outside. This section looks at the cost of installing energy and heat saving items in your home, and shows you how much you could save on your heating bill.

For ideas on how to save energy (and money) See Energy Saving Tips, or read about other Renewable Energies

The table below shows you how much it would cost to install different types of energy saving devices, as well as how much they would save you per year. As you can see most items will pay for themselves in 2-10 years whilst helping the environment from day 1!
