Paying over the odds for your heating bills can be frustrating but having a cold home is not the answer. In fact, there are many things you can do to lower your heating bills and avoid underlying problems that could the cause of the price increase.
Here are some top tips on how to lower your heating bills in 2021.
Don’t neglect your boiler
If your boiler is not functioning properly then it could be putting extra strain on the rest of the system and creating a spike in your bills. Even if you don’t notice any obvious faults, you should always get your boiler serviced annually as it may have internal problems that you don’t know about. Keeping on top of this will ensure that your boiler sees you through the year without breaking the bank.
Switch energy providers
When the end of your energy contract is near shop around for the best deals. Don’t be lazy and stick with the same supplier if you could be saving money elsewhere, as even a few pounds difference will add up over the year. Do your research and you could end up saving a lot more than you expected.
Do home improvements
As well as taking care of your main heating source (your boiler) you should also look at other areas of the home that could be making your home colder. Draughts coming from doors or poorly sealed windows will let in cold air which could mean you end up leaving your heating on for longer or at a higher temperature. Fixing these areas will not only improve your home but keep it cosy!
