Having an efficient heating system running on a low carbon fuel is one of the most important steps you can take to reduce your fuel bills and your carbon dioxide emissions.
In a typical household, over half of the fuel bills are spent on heating and hot water. An efficient heating system that you can control easily can help reduce your fuel bills and reduce your carbon emissions.
There are likely to be significant changes ahead to how we heat our homes. In the meantime, there is a lot you can do right now to make your heating system more energy efficient, saving yourself money on your fuel bills, as well as reducing your carbon emissions.
It’s possible to generate your own electricity or heat from renewable, or replenishable, sources of energy, such as the sun or wind.
Electricity generated at home can be used to power electrical appliances, or even an electric vehicle, reducing the amount of electricity you import and pay for from the grid. This could help you save money on your electricity bills, as well as contribute to reducing the carbon emissions of the UK’s electricity network.
With over 1 million homes in the UK already generating electricity from either solar or wind, renewables are quickly becoming a common sight across the UK.
