As well as reducing the amount of energy used in your home there are also methods to compliment and subsidise your gas and electricity consumption. These alternative energy technologies can be installed in your property and require no change to existing household appliances.
Home energy efficiency ratings will need to be produced for all property sales under new EU legislation commencing 2012. Making your home more energy-efficient now will not only save you money on bills now, it will also make your property more appealing when you come to sell.
Initial costs of implementing some of these systems can be high but various grants are available to encourage people to install them for long-term benefit.
