INSIDE GREEN INTENTION Eco-friendly shopping POOL READY Winterise and enjoy PERFECT PICK Smart products to buy HOT WATER RISKS Ways to avoid accidents Keeping out the cold Janita Singh Keeping out the cold WITH autumn here and the colder nights drawing in, we will switch on the heat to keep warm. This inevitably means autumn is a season of high energy bills and a rise in our carbon footprint. However there are a few simple ways to save energy. Doing your bit around the home doesn't have to be expensive. Start by finding out where your energy is going -- small changes such as turning your thermostat down one degree or turning the television off standby are good places to start. Other simple jobs include fitting draft excluders to external doors and installing energy-efficient light globes. If you are planning to replace any of your appliances, just ensure they are A-rated. Seal all leaks around doors, windows and electrical outlets. Heat escapes out of these cracks. Clean the chimney and get vent systems checked. Pipes must be properly connected and there should be no signs of rust or damage. Is your insulation up to par? Upgrade the insulation in your exterior walls, crawlspaces, basements and attics.
