Gas Suppliers - Saving Tips

By: Liam G

Natural gas has been the fuel of choice for the UKs energy requirements for over 27 years now; this is reflected in the fact that we are the world's third largest consumer of natural gas.

With both usage and prices on the increase it's vital that every homeowner is aware of steps they can take to make their homes' as efficient as possible.

The most obvious way to save money on gas bills is to use less, what may not be as obvious though, is just how much you can save. Simply putting on a jumper and turning your thermostat down a few degrees could save you up to 10% on your bill!

As warm air naturally flows to cooler areas, it's vital your house has adequate insulation. Places that require the most insulation are attics and areas above unheated rooms (e.g. garages, basement).

Drawing your curtains during the colder months and at night is a simple method to help keep a considerable amount of heat in.

As a great deal of heat is lost through windows and doors, double glazing is an excellent preventative measure to take. Although expensive to implement, they can make a considerable difference to the amount of heat you retain, and thus gas saved.

If you suspect your heating system may not be as efficient as it should then it's advisable to get a CORGI registered engineer to come and check your gas suppliers central heating system.

All of the above will help make your home more "efficient", you may however, still be paying through the teeth from your current gas suppliers. Moving to a new gas suppliers may therefore be an excellent way to ensure you are getting the best deal available.
