LONDON, Sept. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It seems only five minutes ago we were donning shorts and flip flops whilst enjoying the short summer, but as the days get colder and we turn on our heating for the chillier months, there is no need to forget your green credentials says sustainable energy provider, green energy uk.
It's at this time we all start to turn on our heating to ensure we are not left shivering in our living rooms. However, just because our thermostats are being turned up it doesn't mean we have to stop being green, there are still ways households can go green without having to make huge changes.
"This year the weather during the summer months has been slightly disappointing, whether we like it or not, winter is starting to set in with colder nights, shorter days and winter coats coming out of the wardrobe," explains Doug Stewart CEO of green energy uk. "However, there are some simple ways you can prepare for the colder season, which will not only mean your home is warmer but also can improve your households' green credentials.
"Firstly, make sure your home runs as efficiently as possible. Before the cold snap sets in have your boiler serviced, this will help prevent any mid-winter breakdowns and also ensure you are not wasting energy. Don't forget to bleed the radiators too, this simple task will only take a couple of minutes but could help raise a temperature of a room by a few degrees.
"Set heating to a timer for when you need it most, coming on at the times you will feel the cold and turning off when you won't be in or when you are snuggled up in bed.
"Above all, don't forget the great energy savings grants that are available to homeowners, these can provide incentives to get your home insulated or your attic cladded and boarded to help minimise heat loss during the winter. More information can be found on the government's website."
green energy uk provides homes and businesses with sustainable electricity, from traditional sources, such as wind and solar, as well as alternative energy sources like skip waste and cow pats.
Doug continues: "Making green choices doesn't have to mean a big commitment, small changes can also make a huge impact; saving energy and working towards being greener."
