Saving Energy

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) - Alpha Property Group

More than half of your domestic energy consumption is used for heating your home.

Proper insulation of walls and roofs and the use of insulating glass have a huge effect on your energy consumption.

To save energy, set your thermostat as low as is comfortable in the winter and as high as is comfortable in the summer.

  • You could save 3% on the day's heating or cooling costs by setting your thermostat back one degree (higher for cooling, lower for heating) for that 24-hour period.
  • On a windy day feel for leaks. Also look for spider webs - if there is a web there is a draft.
  • Keep heating radiators clear of furniture, curtains and rugs.
  • Plug gaps around pipes, ducts and fans that go through walls, ceilings and floors from heated to unheated spaces.
  • If you have a fireplace, close the damper to prevent warm air from escaping through the chimney, and make sure the damper fits tightly.
  • Switch-off your home appliances, instead of leaving them in stand-by mode.
  • Stand-by mode account for some 10 percent of your home energy consumption.
  • Have your heating and cooling systems serviced once a year to ensure peak operational efficiency.
  • Use kitchen, bath, and other ventilating fans wisely. In just one hour, these fans can pull out a houseful of warmed or cooled air. Turn fans off as soon as they have done the job.
