Why Energy Efficiency is Important for Your Home November 21, 2019 If you’re a home-owner, the chances are that you’ve heard the term ‘energy efficiency’ prolifically over the course of the last decade or so. In simple terms, this refers to the goal of reducing the amount of energy required to provide heat, products and services on a global scale. From a domestic perspective, the goal is to reduce energy consumption in your home and lower your household’s carbon footprint. Here’s why this is such a positive move for you and your property: Save Power and Pounds Effortlessly Let’s start with the basics; as the single biggest benefit of having an energy efficient home its ability to save you money. The reason for this is simple; as installing a modern, A-rated boiler in your home can increase efficiency by up to 35% in some instances and actively reduce the amount of energy required to heat your home (and its water supply). These efficiency savings subsequently help to reduce your annual gas bill, helping you to save potentially hundreds of pounds without having to switch providers or identify a significantly cheaper energy source! Contribute to a Healthier Natural Environment As part of the national drive to create energy efficient homes and reduce carbon emissions, the UK government is rolling out so-called smart metres to help property owners assume control of their usage and identify key areas where they can save. At the same time, smart technology has heralded the introduction of remote and comprehensive heating controls, affording home-owners even greater control of your boilers and heating systems. The Energy Saving Trust estimates that if every UK household was to install an A-rated boiler in conjunction with a smart metre and full set of heating controls, we’d save enough energy to heat nearly 1.9 million homes for an entire year! We’d also save around 6.7 million tonnes of CO2 during the same period, which is no small feat in the current climate!
