Stay in Control
The real secret to saving money on your heating bills is the temperature0 control system you are using.

Lock the Heat In
If you have your heating system installed by Profix Ltd, there will be no doubt that your system will be efficiently radiating heat throughout your home, however to stop the heat escaping quickly, you may want to look into options such as insulation and double glazing.
If you still have older metal-framed windows with single glazing, they are most likely costing you a huge amount in heating expenses due to the amount of warmth that can escape through them. Similarly, roofs and cavity walling that lack insulation are a common cause of overspending on heating bills.
Be sure to have both insulation and double glazing fitted as soon as possible, the amount you will save on heating bills will cover the cost of the windows and insulation in a matter of years.
So there are our top three tips for locking the heat in your home and saving a huge amount on heating costs this winter. Be sure to check back on the Profix Ltd blog soon for more fantastic tips, guides and news!
