Ways to save heating

Many people would prefer redoing the kitchen or bathroom rather than adding insulation and renovating to save energy

  • Upgrade your windows to energy-efficient windows. Note: some producers provide the heat loss (U-value) for the glass rather than for the whole window, as the heat loss is higher for the full window than for the glass alone.
  • Ensure optimal insulation of the hot water container, heat exchanger and piping.
  • Check to see that the roof and ceiling or properly insulated, and whether additional insulation of the walls is necessary.
  • Check whether the floor is sufficiently insulated.
  • Reduce your consumption of hot water - this saves both water and energy.
