Guest Post: Home Improvements Worth Saving For

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, a little home improvement is always appreciated. Whether you’ve just moved in to a new home or you’re planning on upgrading your current one, home improvements can help to bring your home up to date as well as save you money in the long run. Many of the home improvements available are incredible investment opportunities that may be an initial cost outlay, but will save you heaps over the coming years. 

Of course, it’s not always possible to look into home improvements, with rental properties being problematic because you don’t own it. However, if you are a homeowner, you can make a difference. Not everyone will have disposable income to use on improvements but those listed are definitely worth saving for. 


A New Boiler 

How long have you had your current boiler for? Old-style boilers can end up costing you money rather than saving it. With a new British Gas boiler, not only will you be benefiting from better energy efficiency but your monthly statement will look healthier too. Plus, British Gas boiler prices are some of the most competitive on the market.  

Double Glazing 


Replacing the windows in your home can cost a fortune but it’s definitely worth it. Not only will they help to keep the heat in, meaning you’ll have to spend less on your heating bill, but they will also keep the noise pollution from your noisy neighbours out. 

Insulation 

Most homes will have some degree of insulation, but investing in better levels of it can help to improve the energy efficiency of your home and save you money over time. Cavity wall insulation and loft insulation has come on leaps and bounds over recent years, so make sure your home is benefiting from the best. 

Take a look at the Green Deal initiative to see if you’re eligible for government help towards any of these improvements and start seeing changes for the better.

  1. My husband and I have lived in our home for almost 5yrs, we were told by the owners that the boiler was new, but we were not fooled when you looked at it and could see that it was rusting and falling apart. We knew that we would someday have to replace it with a new one, however with other renovations and upkeep that hasn't happened...yet. We are "shopping" around and checking out prices so this will be one we have to will look into.
