The rising costs of gas and electricity are causing more and more people to look at ways to save money on their bills.
Even the smallest changes can have a big impact on your energy consumption, such as switching to energy saving light bulbs, turning off the television instead of leaving it on standby, or only filling the kettle with the water you need. But once all of these have been done, you will probably find you may need to spend some money to see some savings in the long run. Replacing appliances with more energy efficient models is one example of this. Items with an A energy rating will save you money over their lifetime, however this solution can be costly at the time and are only really suitable when an old appliance needs replacing.
After all of these solutions have been exhausted, the next step is installing new double-glazed windows. This may not seem as appealing as a new appliance, no one sees getting new windows the same as getting a new tv. But modern double glazing can save you as much as 40% on your energy bills - more than all those other small savings combined. It is a good idea to speak to local double-glazing installers in your home, who can advise you on the best solution for your home.
Rather than a quick fix, like the treat of a new modern appliance, new windows can really become a money saving investment, saving you thousands of pounds.
