Energy Saving Tips to Keep Your Wellington Home Warm
One of the biggest concerns for New Zealand home owners is how to keep their homes as dry and warm as possible. Energy saving tips such as using a draught stopper underneath your door frames and installing insulation in the floors and ceiling can have a huge impact on the quality of your environment.
The windows in your home can be a big source of heat loss so it is important to have properly fitted curtains and blinds. It is recommended that you draw your curtains at dusk to keep the day's heat in and use thick and well-fitted curtains that cover the whole window and reach the floor.
Installing double glazed windows is another cost effective way to keep your home warm and dry. Having double glazed windows will save you money on your energy bills and reduce your power consumption.
Double glazing your home has many benefits and there is no doubt that living in a warm and dry home will have a positive impact on your health.
Some benefits of double glazing include:
- Making your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer
- Saving on power costs and reducing power consumption
- Reducing condensation and outside noise Increasing resale value.
If you live in Wellington you will know that the city and surrounding areas can often experience wild weather such as strong winds and heavy rain. As a consequence some homes in the city can be damp and cold.
By installing double glazed windows you will reduce the dampness in your home and ensure a more comfortable temperature all year round. Double glazing prevents condensation because it creates a vacuum between two panes of glass.
The trapped air creates insulation that prevents heat loss or gain through the window which is why double glazing keeps the heat in during winter and the heat out in summer.
