Winter can be magical, with snowflakes falling and cosy fires burning. But there’s nothing lovely about feeling chilly in your home or the high energy bills that come with keeping the cold at bay.

Save on Energy Bills

At DD Wilson Gas & Heating Engineers, we're not just the trusted local boiler installers in the North West, but we’re also all about working smarter, not harder, to keep you warm. Here are our top winter tips to Save on Energy Billsas your friendly community guides to keep your home toasty—and those energy bills as low as possible.

1. Draft-proof Your Home

Your front door might be solid, but is it draft-proof? Keeping warm and cold air in is key for comfort and energy efficiency. Use weatherstripping or a simple draft snake along doors or windows that let in a little more than charming winter light, and keep your toasty air in!

2. Take Advantage of Natural Heating

Use that winter sun to your advantage, even when it's frigid outside. Open your curtains or blinds when the sun is out to bring free heat into your home, and at night, shut them for an extra layer of insulation.

3. Think Smart About Heating

Considering investing in a smart thermostat? They can optimise your heating use, learning your habits over time to heat your home efficiently. Many even let you control your heating from your smartphone—perfect if your plans change and you'll be home earlier than expected!

4. Maintain a Steady Temperature

It's tempting to crank up the thermostat when it's nippy, but, for energy efficiency, it's best to set a comfortable, steady temperature. Experts recommend around 18 to 21 degrees Celsius as optimal. Remember, your favourite jumper was made for winter, so it's okay to use it!
