Britons might be wise to hire a builder in Bradford in order to carry out home improvements that will make the winter more comfortable.
Tony Pickup, founder of the Double Glazing & Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme (DGCOS), explained that there are numerous ways to make a property warmer. He suggested adding loft insulation – which is said to be the most cost-effective option – as well as similar material in the walls.
However, in many homes, it is the windows and doors that need to be targeted by professionals, as this is where up to a fifth of heat escapes. “Upgrading your windows and doors to more efficient windows and doors can actually help stop energy loss and save you money,” Mr Pickup stated.
A recent survey by the DGCOS found that almost half of young people aged between 18 and 34 would rather focus on making their homes look nicer than improving their energy efficiency in order to drive down bills.
