6 Easy Ways to Keep Your House Warm

Keeping your home warm is a priority during the winter months. With energy prices having increased by 5% over the last few months, we understand the importance of creating a cosy living space within a budget to increase your home's energy efficiency. In this blog, we’ll explore some easy and effective ways to keep your house warm, from thermal imaging services to simple yet impactful DIY solutions. 

1.     Thermal Imaging Services: Uncovering Hidden Heat Loss

Ignite Property Group offers cutting-edge thermal imaging services to help homeowners identify areas of heat loss in their homes. Advanced technology such as this allows us to identify not just large areas of heat loss, but also insulation gaps, cold spots, and other issues such as potential mould that may compromise your home’s warmth. By addressing these areas, both large and small, you not only enhance your comfort but also save on energy costs. 

2.     Reflecting Warmth into Your Room: Foil Behind Radiators

A really quick and cost-effective way to help maximise the efficiency of your radiators is to place a reflective foil behind them. While a simple addition, this will reflect heat back into the room preventing it from being absorbed by the wall instead. This DIY solution amplifies the warmth generated by your heating system.

3.     Closing the Gap on Heat Loss: Door Seals

Air can often escape through gaps around doors. Installing door seals on external and internal doors is an effective way to prevent drafts and maintain a consistent indoor temperature, guaranteeing your doors have a snug fit that keeps the cold out and the warmth in. 

4.     Blocking Drafts with Style: Chimney Balloons

Fireplaces can often be a source of draughts in homes. If you have a fireplace that’s not in use, consider the use of a chimney balloon. These inflatable devices block cold draughts from entering your home, providing an efficient barrier against heat loss. 

5.     Wrapping Up Energy Savings: Pipe Insulation 

Uninsulated pipes can result in heat loss as hot water travels through your home. By insulating your pipes, you not only reduce energy waste but also ensure that the water can stay hotter for longer. 

6.     Loft and Cavity Wall Insulation

For more substantial improvements, it’s worth considering if your loft and cavity walls are insulated. Ignite Property Group specialise in these larger projects, providing not only professional installation to maximise energy efficiency but also insulation removal to update homes and ensure they meet regulated standards and that any defective insulation is extracted.
