Home heating costs

This accounts for about 60% of what we spend in a year on energy bills, so an efficient heating system can make a big difference to your finances.

Where money is tight many people have to make the decision whether to ‘heat’ or ‘eat’, this section should help your understanding of all the different heating options.

Your central heating system plays an important role in your home – keeping you supplied with the heat and hot water that make life so much more comfortable. As fuel costs inevitably rise, having an efficient and cost effective heating system is vital, and it’s one of the main steps you can take to reducing your bills and CO₂ emissions.

​With ever increasing energy bills and the use of fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil declining, a growing option is to look at green heating and hot water systems. Using alternative energy sources is also a great way to reduce the CO₂ footprint of your house.
