What is energy efficiency?

Energy efficiency is all about doing more with less - in terms of energy efficient households, this means getting as much useful power out of appliances while using as little energy as possible, and not letting any go to waste.

For instance, while old-style lightbulbs produce a lot of light, they also produce a lot of heat, which is a waste of energy. Energy-efficient lightbulbs produce the same amount of light, but very little heat, which means there is less energy wasted. This is the case with all energy-efficient household appliances.

You can also make your house more energy efficient by installing loft and cavity wall insulation to reduce the amount of heat that is lost through walls and the roof - simply improving your home's insulation could cut your annual energy bill by up to £390 per year.*

*£390 savings a year figure is for a 1940s 3 bed semi-detached home with a ten year old gas boiler and a gas price of 3.73p/kWh, when cavity wall insulation and loft insulation are installed. More modern homes save less. Individual savings depend on a large number of factors and the £390 quoted should be treated as a guide. †Based on installing a new A-rated condensing boiler and full set of heating controls in a gas-heated, semi-detached gas heated home with three bedrooms.

Boiler replacement

If your boiler is broken or you notice a problem with it such as varying boiler pressure or strange noises, you may need to have it replaced. It might also be helpful to have your boiler replaced if it is old and inefficient. For example, by replacing an old G rated boiler you could see an annual saving on your energy bill of £300.

When choosing a new gas boiler there are two standard options: regular or combi. A regular boiler has the advantage of being able to deliver hot water to more than two places in the house at once, suitable for large families, whereas combi boilers can deliver hot water at any time of the day, not needing to rely on a hot water tank.

Boiler replacement typically costs around £2,300 but it is a good idea to speak to an installer before you buy. By filling in the UKPower.co.uk boiler replacement form you will receive up to 4 free quotes from local, vetted, boiler installers.

Old boiler rating Annual saving*
G ( < 70%) £300
F (70–74%) £200
E (74–78%) £150
D (78–82%) £105

Home Insulation

A typical house can lose half of the heat through the walls and loft. If your home is currently without loft insulation, you could see a saving of £180 per year on your energy bills by installing 270mm deep mineral wool insulation (based on a gas-heated, semi-detached home with three bedrooms). With an installation cost of less than £300 the insulation will pay for itself within two years.

With cavity wall insulation you could see a saving of £140 on your energy bills. So long as your walls are not exposed to driving rain, are in good condition and unfilled, and the cavity is 50mm wide, they will likely be ideal for filling.

Why not see if you can save with home insulation?


Double Glazing

Double glazing helps you save money on your energy bills by stopping heat from escaping through thin windows. The type of glass that provides the greatest protection is known as low emissivity or Low-E glass. Special gasses such as xenon can be used to fill the panes to provide an even higher level of insulation. Be sure to look out for warm-edge pane spacers, for minimum heat conduction.

By filling in the UKPower.co.uk double glazing form you will receive up to 4 free quotes from local, vetted, double glazing installers.
