With the cold weather upon us, here are some top tips to be more energy efficient and reduce your carbon footprint:
1. Solar Panels
Have you considered installing solar panels? This is a great option if you are not looking to move in the short to medium term. Once installed, the solar panel system will drastically cut your electricity bills. Your system maybe eligible for the government backed Feed-In Tariffs which means you get paid for the electricity you generate (whether you use it or not) and if you have a surplus of electricity, you can sell it back to the grid. Solar panels come in different types which can generate more or less power. Find out more about solar panels here: BayWa r.e. Renewable Energy
Have you ever thought what the purpose of a dehumidifier is, when will you need it and how to choose one?
A dehumidifier is a machine that removes moisture from the interior air of a room and maintains the room’s humidity levels through a humidistat. Ideal relative humidity levels in British homes is 50 to 55%. Air which is too dry can cause dry skin and create static shocks around the house. Too much moisture can encourage mould and allergen growth leading to risks of health problems and can cause damage to the house.
