Do you need a Price?

It’s that time of year: the leaves have fallen, and so has the temperature. So how do you keep your home warm without it costing a fortune?

We’ve put together a guide of eight easy ways to keep your home warm efficiently.

Door Insulation

Fitting draught excluders is an easy win when it comes to keeping the cold at bay. These can be fitted around the frame of all interior and exterior doors, and in addition to this you can purchase door runners or ‘draught snakes’ to sit along the bottom of any door. These are stuffed tubes of fabric that help prevent draughts from entering and heat from escaping. You can even make your own by sewing a tube of fabric and filling it with dried rice.

Don’t Forget

For extra heat protection, insulate letterboxes and keyholes too.

When One Door Closes, Another One Opens

If your house is prone to draughts, the first thing you often do is shut all the doors to trap heat in a confined area, but consider reusing heat in your home too. If you’re cooking in the kitchen, try leaving the door ajar as the heat can travel between rooms. If you’ve used the oven, leave the door open when you’ve finished using the heat.

Window Insulation

Windows are a big culprit for allowing heat to escape. Triple glazing will be the best way to go, but there are other ways to improve heat retention. Start by closing your curtains: this will act as a barrier between the cold windows and your warm room. You don’t want to spend money on central heating only for the warmth to escape through your windows.

Top Tip
If you cut bubble wrap to the size of your window and secure it by spritzing some water and sticking it on, it acts as a handy DIY alternative to draught excluders.

Move Your Furniture Around

It may sound too simple but having a jig-around of your current layout could help with warmth. Have a proper look at your living space; does your sofa block your radiator? Is your armchair positioned in line of a draught? If so, have a shuffle and see where you can maximise your heat output and reduce chills.

Reflect On

Pop some foil behind the radiator to reflect heat back into the room. It’s an old-fashioned way of doing things, but hey – if old-fashioned warms you up and cuts costs then why not give it a go, right? Alternatively, you can purchase radiator panels that will do the job just as effectively.

Don’t Forget
Bleed your radiators; this helps them run efficiently and effectively.

Floors

Underfloor heating is sometimes available but if you’ve got wooden or laminate flooring, try adding some rugs for a quick win; you can even layer them up for double insulation. Not only will this keep you warm underfoot but it will also help with airborne heat.

Top Tip
Put carpet tiles in high-traffic areas of your kitchen such as by the sink or oven – generally areas you would stand if you were cooking or cleaning.

Layer up the Loft

A quarter of all heat is lost through the roof,* so where temperature retention is concerned, this one is pretty important. Not to mention the fact that it’ll help your home to be more energy-efficient, saving you money in the long run.

You can insulate your loft by purchasing a loft blanket, also known as loft roll; it’s available in different widths, so ensure you’ve got the right one for your home.

Top Tip

Check that your existing roll hasn’t been compressed by boards laid on top of it. This can affect the effectiveness of your insulation.

Tackle the Temperature

Obviously, the easiest way to heat your home is to crank the thermostat up, but that’ll increase your bills and dry the house out. You don’t have to have the heat in your room at a tropical temperature to reap the benefits of a warm home.

Top Tip

By reducing your thermostat one degree lower than you normally do, you can potentially save yourself an average of £85 a year.*

Eco-Friendly Rooflights

Having beautiful rooflights doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your energy bills. In fact, it can help them.

Our eco-friendly rooflights are triple-glazed and Krypton-filled and retain heat, making them the front runner in energy-efficient rooflight technology.

What is Krypton?
A gas that’s injected into the glass to maximise its efficiency.

Great company to use - very helpful with pre-order enquiries, and we’re very accommodating when organising delivery dates and details. I would be happy to recommend EoS.

Very easy transaction, great product and delivery service was fantastic. Only constructive feedback I can give is to better highlight the weight of the product and that can/will cause issues with delivery and installation. Luckily we had 6 builders on site who between them managed to move the £140kg roof light but what that meant is that we had to pay extra to re-enforce the roof with different beams

Chris was a great help in selecting my roof lights. Quick delivery for 3 stock roof lights and the builders had them installed without a problem. The one opening roof light has not been connected so I wait to see how it works after our extension is complete.

Our rooflights from EOS look stunning and 'make' our room. Our extension is flooded with light. The electric one functions really well. We couldn't fault the service from EOS. They were so helpful, especially as we needed a bespoke size rooflight. I did a lot of research into which rooflights to buy and EOS were the most cost-effective by far, and theirs is a quality product. Thanks to the entire team at EOS. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.

Good price, helpful on information delivered promptly and well wrapped. Delivery cost seemed steep but I don't think that was under their control.
