A properly insulated house will be able to keep the heat in. Attics are particularly beneficial when they are insulated. Some governments even run heating schemes which help to cover the cost of the insulation. Once a house is insulated there is no upkeep or costs, and you will start to see your heating bills lower almost instantly.
Invest in Double Glazing
Double glazing is where two panels of glass are placed in a window with a small gap in between them. They have the ability to drastically reduce a household’s heating bill. They also have several other benefits, including reducing external noise to help you to get a better nights sleep. Double glazing can be installed onto any type of window, and it will also look attractive. Although double glazing requires an initial investment, it is a practical choice for people who are seriously looking to lower their energy bills over a longer period of time.
