5 tips to avoid excessive electricity bills in Winter

One of the biggest challenges in homes nowadays is knowing how to heat the house and keep it as warm as possible to avoid an excessive electricity and gas bill.

Over the last year, the continued rise in energy prices has caused consumers to rethink their heating and lighting routines. In the coldest months of the year, users are looking for alternatives to heat their homes without heating or heating bills becoming a headache.

Promoting energy savings while guaranteeing a minimum level of comfort is a difficult task to achieve but an essential one. So let's look at some practical tips on how to heat your home while saving on heating. Take note!

Five tips to save on heating

To avoid surprises on your heating bills, we must adopt specific measures that help us to keep warm without the continuous use of heating. Here are some tips to help you stay warm:

Install the correct thermal insulation

Integrating good thermal insulation in the home is the most effective solution for greater thermal comfort and energy savings. It is possible to carry out thermal insulation procedures on the outside and inside, integrating an effective insulating material in elements such as façades, roofs or floors.

From these lines, we recommend our URSA glass mineral wool products, a robust material of excellent thermal resistance, permeable to vapour and with a great capacity for acoustic insulation and excellent fire behaviour. Thanks to a sound thermal insulation system, the interior temperature is stabilised, and heat loss is reduced. Two critical advantages for heating the house and saving on heating costs.

Control ventilation

Ventilating a house is a routine, daily task. It should be carried out at the coolest times of the day, taking advantage of the hours of sunshine. In the case of a small house, just 5 minutes will be enough. Excessive ventilation will result in a thermal sensation far below what users would like.

Take advantage of sunlight

The sun is inexhaustible source of natural light and heat. You can use the sun's rays to raise the temperature in your home. You can use the sun's rays to raise the temperature in your home. Depending on the orientation of your home, you will receive sunlight at certain times. Raise the blinds and remove elements that block the sun's rays.

Control and close off spaces

Particularly in larger homes, it is essential to control spaces and rooms. It is therefore recommended to keep the rooms insulated, thus preventing the cold from moving through the house and concentrating the heat in places where people live the most.

Responsible use of heating

Most of us need to change our heating consumption habits to optimise expenditure. For example, in the case of homes where tenants spend more time outside, it is recommended to turn on the heating when they are at home.

Keeping the heating system idling is recommended instead of switching on and off. Either way, the temperature should be at most 21 degrees Celsius.
