Save money on gas central heating through proper insulation such as draught proofing and insulation for lofts and walls.
Roof and loft insulation
In an uninsulated property, a quarter of the heat is lost through the roof.
By insulating your loft or flat roof you can easily reduce your gas central heating system bills. This is both effective for at least 40 years will pay for itself in the long term.
A third of all the heat in uninsulated properties is lost through the walls. The colder it is outside, the faster heat will escape, affecting your gas central heating bills.
Cavity or solid wall insulation will pay for itself.
Insulating under the floorboards on your ground floor will save you serious money on your gas central heating systems.
Draught-proofing is one of the cheapest and most efficient ways to save money on your gas central heating system.
Solar energy subsides to drop dramatically again after July
Government subsidies from the Feed-In-Tariff, a scheme to encourage people to install solar panels, are to be reduced again for installations after July 31.
In March 2012 the Department of Environment and Climate Change informed the Solar energy industry that the Feed in Tariff would be reduced from 21p per kWh to 16p and that the duration of the scheme will reduce from 25 years to 20.
Returns on Investments in Solar PV energy will significantly drop again after this month but Solar PV manufacturers have already lowered their prices to ensure that returns on investment remain attractive.
Amazingly, until the end of July, this means that Returns on Investments in Solar PV are roughly the same as when the scheme was first introduced in 2010.
