Consumers urged to seek energy saving advice as cold snap begins

The Heating and Hotwater Industry Council (HHIC) is urging people to take out simple measures in the home which will help them to waste less energy and make savings.

HHIC’s national energy efficiency campaign called Hole in the Roof aims to raise public awareness in how to save energy. The Hole in the Roof website provides information in how these changes can be easily achieved. 

For instance, reducing the temperature on your thermostat, could help you save hundreds of pounds; cutting out draughts from doors and windows or fitting reflective foil behind radiators all save money and they are good for the environment too.

HHIC directorRoger Webb said: “We can become complacent when we have some prolonged, mild weather and can delay making changes to older heating systems. Then the cold sets in and our homes are unprepared.  Not all changes to save energy are costly and we have some easy energy efficiency tips on our website, ‘Hole in the Roof’ that will really help people to save money and make our old housing stock less leaky.”
