According to SEAI research, almost 2/3rds of home energy usage is dedicated to heating. That means that heating is both your biggest energy expense, and the biggest opportunity to cut your energy usage and emissions.
If you want to reduce those costs, the first step is keeping the heat inside your home for as long as possible. When heat escapes through poor insulation or ineffective windows and doors, your heating system has to use more energy to keep you warm. So just keeping more heat inside your home will cut your energy usage and save you money.
Watch our guide below to see the most common ways heat gets out of your home, and how you might be able to save money on your heating.
