The media is full of warnings about the UK’s ever-increasing cost of living, with energy topping the agenda. Currently the 12-month inflation rates for gas and electricity are at their highest since 2009 and seemingly continue to rise. So, in this month’s blog we look at investing in your bathroom now can reduce your energy costs long term.
Repairing Leaks and Drips
If you have a leak or drip in your bathroom, it may not seem like an urgent issue. However, over time this leak wastes water, thus increasing your usage and consequently your bill. If your current bathroom suite is dated and leaking, it might be time to consider a new bathroom.
Use Motion Sensors and Timers
Are you forever reminding your kids to turn lights off when they leave a room? It can be a constant battle and cause an unnecessary increase to your bills. Installing motion sensor lighting with a timer in your bathroom negates this issue completely. Your lights will turn on as you enter the bathroom and turn themselves off when you leave. Therefore, reducing your energy costs and stress levels.
Replace Your Bath with a Shower Room
In addition to the cost of the water usage, baths require more energy to heat the water to fill them. Therefore, if your family replaces bathing with showering you will save on water and energy costs. Bathroom Studio Design hosts a range of showering options in our stylish Brentwood showroom. Furthermore, our staff are happy to advise on the best suite to reduce your energy usage.
Install a Quality Bathtub
If you can’t live without your bath, we totally understand! But there are still ways you can enjoy a nice hot soak and keep energy costs down. We are all guilty of topping up our bath with hot water after soaking for too long. Installing a quality bathtub ensures the water retains the heat for longer, therefore reducing the need to top-up your tub.
