DIYers advised to combat rising energy bills


DIYers advised to combat rising energy billsDIYers who invest in heat-proofing will quickly cut their energy bills, according to an expert.

Ellie Horwitch-Smith, energy management expert with Faithful + Gould, has highlighted how making a few amendments around the home could save DIYers money.

Her words of advice follow statistics published by her firm which show that Brits spent an extra £1.2 billion on wasted heat during the cold snap this winter.

Ms Horwitch-Smith notes that during cold spells "inefficient buildings perform increasingly badly as heating systems struggle to maintain ... indoor temperatures".

She advises the public that an investment in "heat-proofing can rapidly cut their energy costs".

Faithful + Gould, a member of the Atkins Group of companies, is a project and cost management consultancy operating from 64 offices across the world.

Earlier this month, a survey from Rated People claimed that energy efficiency would be the top priority for DIY enthusastics in 2010.
