How to reduce your gas bills

During the winter, your heating system works overtime to keep your home warm. It's also the time of year when your energy bills are likely to rise. Also, with the cost of heating your house going up,  we recognise how challenging this can be. This guide will look at various concepts and new technologies that can help lower your energy costs and carbon footprint. 

reduce gas bills

So here are a few ways you can reduce your gas bills...

Have you considered switching gas providers? 

Many people believe that switching from one gas supplier to another is difficult, or they do not know how to compare rates from different suppliers. Changing energy providers is simple and will save you money in the long term. 

Get your boiler serviced

This is a vital step! A boiler service allows a heating professional to ensure that your boiler operates at maximum efficiency. Castle Heating Kent is Gas Safe certified, which means all the extensive training to perform various service checks on your gas boiler has been completed!

Your windows may need to be upgraded

Many homes with single-glazed windows lose a significant amount of heat via the windows. If your home has single-glazed windows, you should consider replacing them with double or triple-glazed windows. It will not only keep your home warm but also help you save money on your heating expenses. 

Insulate your home 

Adding insulation to the tops of your pipes and extra storage tanks is a wonderful technique to cut down on heat loss. The biggest benefit is that it will take less time to heat up the hot water, and it will stay warmer longer!

reduce energy bills with smart thermostat

Purchase a smart thermostat

Are you looking for some quick cost-cutting measures you can take straight away? Compared to standard thermostats, using smart multi-zone thermostats to regulate your heating system may help save an extra 25% on energy. With many smart thermostats available, you can be assured that your house will be heated at the appropriate time and temperature to meet your needs and requirements.  Only the rooms that need to be warm are heated with multi-zone heating, helping you further save on your energy bills.

Smart thermostats not only provide you complete control over your home's heating, but they also allow you to access the settings from any device, ensuring that your home only heats up when it needs to. If you would like to know more, please get in touch with us today. 

Upgrade your central heating system

Another excellent technique to save a lot of energy is to update your heating system. Underfloor heating is a considerably cleaner and more effective method to heat a house than conventional heating systems. Installing underfloor heating systems throughout your house might result in significant financial savings.

Long term solutions

Several alternatives are available to you if you're looking for long-term solutions to increase the sustainability of your property and guard against future price increases. You may consider adding a new renewable energy-based heat source, such as an air- or ground-source heat pump, a biomass boiler, or a solar thermal system, while simultaneously planning to install new solar panels that will operate with storage batteries to meet your demands. 

Although these energy-saving measures might be expensive to implement, they can reduce your home's carbon footprint and help minimise the effects of disruptions in the energy market.
