 1  Insulation is very important - Enough energy to heat 3 million homes is lost through poorly insulated houses each year - The Energy Savings Trust.

 2   Ensure your loft and cavity walls are all insulated to a high standard - this can save you £100-£120 per year.

 3   Have your widows and doors Double glazed - double glazing could save the average uk household £110 per year.

 4   Make sure all your heating system's pipes are properly lagged and insulated so energy is not wasted through heat loss.

 5   Make sure your hot water cylinder has an insulation jacket.

 6   Older type boilers waste energy; consider replacing yours with a modern condensing boiler, which converts more than 88% of fuel into heat. This could save you 30%, or around £150-£180 on your average annual heating bill.

 7  Make sure you have a thermostat fitted and that you don't inflate your heating bill by having your system turned up unnecessarily high.

 8   Have environmentally friendly low energy light bulbs installed in your house.

 9   Pensioners can get a government grant to help with the cost of insulation - visit the  Energy Saving Trust for more information. http://www.energysavingtrust.org.uk/.

Please feel free to Contact Us at Dean Evans Plumbing & Heating any time for free advice or an operative can check how cost efficient your system is and recommend improvement, where necessary.

 1   Make sure a timer is fitted to your emersion heater's hot water tank to avoid wasting money by keeping water hot all day.

 2   Make sure your immersion heater has a thermal safety cut out fitted. 

 3   Make sure your hot water cylinder has an insulation jacket. 

 4   Make sure your hot water thermostat isn't set too high - the higher the temperature of your hot water the more cold you will waste to cool in down to a safe, usable level.
