Updated: May 24, 2023

Here we go ….easing into the last month of the year and Winter proper…. and for sure every home continues to have an eye to ‘best actions’ needed to do all possible to cut those looming dreaded energy bills. We, at Mint Builders are busy with various home extension and renovation projects, all, of which, of course, very much ‘have an eye’ to the best possible energy saving practices for the future. 

Noted online this week, was some useful updated guiding energy saving information from the always well-informed HomeOwners Alliance team. They pointed out that most of us use gas to heat our homes. and added, quite rightly,  how the more expensive that gas gets, the more measures everyone with gas at home needs to take to cut usage and thus save vital money this Winter.

The Alliance team offered a wide- choice of top tips and guidance to help you save on your gas bill! What is for starters worth a look, for sure, is the well-presented HOA guide on getting help with your energy bills this Winter. Go here…Energy Bills Help …to check for the very latest info on energy bills AND the help due to YOU ….and, also, just HOW you can access all that valuable, essential  help you are due for your home this Winter!

Their advice goes from extra wrapping up with warm clothes …to monitoring a thermostat…re-positioning your furniture ..getting your heater timer set right and, of course, ensuring your heating pipes and radiators are always functioning the very best they can.
