This winter, many of us are feeling the hike in energy prices, meaning it’s now much more expensive to heat our homes, especially now the colder weather is with us.
Making essential home improvements such as adding insulation, installing double or triple glazing, or upgrading your heating system can help you to save energy at home and reduce your energy bills.
The End Fuel Poverty Coalition estimate that the increasing cost of energy will result in an additional 488,000 households classed as being in fuel poverty.
Knowing where to begin when it comes to improving the energy efficiency of your home can be confusing, challenging, and costly.
