Energy Week 2015 - Top Three Tips
During this year’s Energy Week (24-31 Oct 2015) #EnergyNI15 we are encouraging you to do just three things:
Insulate, Insulate, Insulate
Make sure your insulation is up to spec, recommends the Housing Executive, as it remains the best way to keep your energy bills down.
Make sure your loft has 270mm of insulation and if you’ve cavity walls find out if they have been filled. If you’re on a low income you may be eligible for help through Affordable Warmth.
