Winter-proofing your home with Wickes

If you’re concerned about the onset of winter, and the effect it will have on your home and its heating bills, then we’d like to point you in the direction of two helpful online guides from DIY giant Wickes.

The company has an extensive advice section which includes a guide to heating your home for less. Covering methods of keeping warm and cutting your energy bills, it includes product know-how and energy-saving tips as well as a list of useful items including radiators, pipes, valves, boilers, fires and surrounds. Access it here.

The retailer’s home insulation guide explains a number of no- or low-cost measures that you can take to prevent heat from escaping through your roof, walls and windows this winter. Access it here and learn more about insulating a loft here.
