Reducing your energy bill

Advice for householders in Westbury

The certainties in this world used to be death and taxes but unfortunately we are now experiencing a third – the ever increasing cost of energy.  In association with the Parish Church, we are taking advantage of a professional energy advice service offered by the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) based in Bedminster. This CSE advisory service is part of a national initiative to help as many people as possible to reduce their costs of energy.

The advice ranges over many issues – not just loft and cavity wall insulation. The CSE can help householders understand their fuel bills and use their heating controls correctly as well as giving advice on switching energy suppliers and/or finding a cheaper tariff. They will highlight the benefits of low energy lighting and appliances such as washing machines and fridges that use less electricity. If damp and condensation is a problem, again advice is available.

Following the changes in the economics of installing solar panels and the Feed-in-Tariff, there will be an opportunity to explore the costs and benefits under the new arrangements.

Sometimes a simple piece of advice can have huge impact. For example, explaining to an elderly and isolated person how to control their heating system properly helps them steer a course between high fuel bills on the one hand and risks of hypothermia on the other.
