Top Tips to Lower Your Heating Bill

Posted on 03 October 2022

Sarah Kemp, who led our Retrofit event earlier this year, has shared a couple of recommendations with our buddies at Transition Town Shoreham and we’d love to, in turn, share them with you:

The Heating Hub has a brilliant website that everyone should go to before this winter with advice on how to lower your energy bill if you use a condensing combi boiler:

Go to the Ripple Energy website to find out more on how green energy ownership is the easy way to protect yourself from rising energy prices. Investing in one of their wind farms can lead to reduced energy bills and can work out to be more cost effective than putting PVs on your roof. Investment can start from as little as £25!

TTW would also like to recommend the following sites & schemes to help with energy costs:

The Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) has put together an excellent blog with some great practical advice to help you prepare for the winter ahead amid the biggest price rise in energy bills in decades:

The Warmer Homes scheme which has just secured £32 million for retrofitting energy saving measures in Sussex and Hampshire. Under the scheme if a household’s annual income is less than £30,000 and they live in a home with a low energy rating, they could be eligible for insulation, solar panels, air source heat pumps and more. The scheme is open to all eligible residents across West Sussex. Find out more: www.warmerhomes.org.uk

We get such a huge variety of things to repair each month but at this months session the theme was definitely fairy lights and Christmas trees - as well as the usual Dyson mountain (they are probably the most frequent item that we are asked to repair!).

Ah the Dyson mountain. All subtly different so each requires unique spare parts as I understand it! There must be a better business model than 'make it out of brightly coloured plastic'!
