- Ensuring adequate insulation can have huge impact on energy bills. Insulated walls and double-glazed windows stop heat escaping and, as such, help reduce energy costs.
- Renewable energy sources such as solar PV and energy efficient alternatives to energy guzzling products such as lightbulbs, are proving to be the fastest and most cost-effective way to reduce energy consumption, typically repaying the investment, through reduced energy consumption, within 1 to 2 years.
