Who doesn’t dream of coming home to a warm house after a long, cold, rainy day? In winter it’s a real nuisance, frozen fingers, red noses and… the heating bill!
As soon as the temperature drops and the first snow falls, we turn up the heat to hibernate, but the bill goes up too. And yet, heating is the one area where you can easily make energy savings. Insulation and good housekeeping… we’ll give you all our tips!
Insulation, comfort first!
Why heat your home if the heat escapes so quickly? Good insulation is the key to savings! It keeps the heat in during the winter and keeps your home cool in the summer. It provides you with greater comfort, savings and better management of energy resources.
The right things to do to keep your savings warm
1°C more is 6% more on your bill, at that price you might as well add a pair of socks…
To limit your costs you can :
- Lower the temperature by 5°C at night
- Do not cover your radiators with curtains so that the heat can spread throughout the room
- Close the shutters at night to reduce heat loss
- Use your radiators properly
Not every room heats in the same way, but you don’t think about manually turning down or turning off the radiators in each room. You can use thermostatic valves and a central smart thermostat to regulate the temperature to suit your needs. A worthwhile investment that will help you reduce your bills!

You can also use centralized or decentralized ventilation devices that will recover heat and guarantee better air quality and fewer headaches.
