Preventing heat loss

First of all, one of the most logical ways to save money in your house is to ensure that no heat is escaping from walls, windows or the roof. In houses that aren’t properly insulated, 30% of energy is lost through these components within the property.

If you think you can’t afford house insulation, think again. Keep Warm offer loft and cavity wall insulation for homes in the UK. They have government-backed funding for 100% non-repayable insulation grants. To find out information regarding free home insulation click here.

Automatic gates for added security

Erreka Automatic GatesAutomatic gates act as a huge deterrent for local thieves and can also prevent any cold calling. If you’re looking to add extra style to your driveway, think about installing a gate. Most homeowners opt for swing or sliding gates due to their style and convenience, whilst also offering a better security solution. Erreka offers specialist electric gate solutions.

Other things to consider include:

  • The height of the gate
  • How will visitors gain entry / exit?
  • Types of gates available

Safe & secure throughout the year

Every 3-6 months, go around your property to check all doors and windows and make sure they are tightly sealed properly. Failing to do so means water intrusion and damage can happen on a regular basis, not to mention the incredible amount of heat loss. See: window & door sealant.

Keeping water away

Your drains and gutters need just as much attention as the interior of your house. They are an all year round task that needs careful monitoring especially after any storms or heavy rain falls. Contact us.

If you neglect your gutters, water could leak into your building causing mould and ill health. If you are unsure about doing this efficiently, find more information from Blue Sky Guttering.

Check your property for leaves, debris or organic matter and ensure they are regularly cleaned out as if they aren’t; they are susceptible to overflowing and can lead to blockage.
