How People in Loughborough, Charnwood and East leake Can Keep Their Home Heating Bills Down

In this #throughthekeyholeblog I have written a 60-second speed read that could save you a lot of money.

Here’s a question for you.

What happens when you have a national lockdown in winter?

Well, there a few things but one that’s guaranteed to happen is heating bills rocket.

More people are at home whether to work, learn or stay safe, which means the thermostat gets turned up to keep everyone warm for longer than usual.

The good news is the National Energy Foundation charity has shared eight tips to keep the costs down and cut the amount of energy we use. Here they are.
1) Understand how your heating system and its controls work.
2) Turning your thermostat down by just 1 degree can save you money, and you won’t even notice the temperature difference.
3) Move furniture away from radiators – they block heat getting further into a room.
4) Don’t dry clothes on your radiators – they limit the effectiveness of the heat the rads emit.
5) Think small to save big – letterboxes can let a lot of heat escape, so think about insulating them.
6) Ditch the electric blanket – a hot water bottle is cheaper.
7) Draw the curtains at night and let the sun flood in during the day.
8) Take the advice handed down from dads over the decades and put a warm jumper on when you get cold at home instead of instantly reaching for the thermostat.

At Newton Fallowell we’re proud to serve the community in Loughborough, Charnwood and East Leake. That’s why we’ll be sharing regular articles throughout the latest lockdown to help you stay entertained, informed and safe.
Now, where did we put that woolly pullover?

Thanks for reading as always,

We are required by law to conduct anti-money laundering checks on all those selling or buying a property. Whilst we retain responsibility for ensuring checks and any ongoing monitoring are carried out correctly, the initial checks are carried out on our behalf by Lifetime Legal who will contact you once you have agreed to instruct us in your sale or had an offer accepted on a property you wish to buy. The cost of these checks is £60 (incl. VAT), which covers the cost of obtaining relevant data and any manual checks and monitoring which might be required. This fee will need to be paid by you in advance of us publishing your property (in the case of a vendor) or issuing a memorandum of sale (in the case of a buyer), directly to Lifetime Legal, and is non-refundable.  We will receive some of the fee taken by Lifetime Legal to compensate for its role in the provision of these checks.
