People have reached the end of their tether as far as energy bills are concerned. It is quite incredible how quickly they have risen in recent years and that trend is set to continue well into the future as demand outweighs supply. Many have been left with no other option but to turn their heating off; a very dangerous route to take but a necessity for those struggling to pay fuel costs.
Orion Windows strongly advises that householders avoid neglecting their boiler when the weather dictates that they should turn their heating on as it can have a huge effect on the health of those involved. What they need is reliable double glazing in North Yorkshire or double glazing in Leeds to properly heat their home and that’s exactly what we supply and fit at Orion.

Very few homeowners need to keep their heating on throughout the day, nor can they afford too. When you are out of the house it makes no sense to have the heating on but it would be cold if left off all day between 8 and maybe 6 when you return from work. As soon as you arrive home in and you do need to heat your home though it would be more beneficial if the heat generated could be kept inside for longer. If you live in a property with traditional windows it may not do enough to keep your home warm as old windows are one of the chief causes of heat loss and draughts.
This is one of the major benefits of double glazing in North Yorkshire as it is designed to trap any heat generated by a boiler or portable heaters for long periods so that …Continue To Full Story
For many people getting time to chill out and relax is minimal. We work more hours than most countries throughout Europe which means that any free time we get is extremely limited. This poses a problem for when you feel as though you need to somehow recharge batteries as a lack of energy can result in a lack of performance in work and lack of general vigour.
The best place to wind down is without doubt in your home. The family home is very often where we most feel comfortable but even there it can sometimes be difficult to switch off from life if your living or dining room does not have the necessary atmosphere to aid relaxation.
Rather than allow things to get on top of you, why not add a further room to your home that you can primarily use as an escape and the best way of …

The cost of household energy has become a serious problem for the UK homeowner. Families have to fork out in excess of an average 1,350 pounds per year on household fuel at the present time, with that figure set to rise further over the coming weeks, months and years.
Some advocate switching suppliers to save money, but this will only save you money up to a certain extent. Whilst it is true that first-time switchers can save anything up to 300 pounds per year, the more you switch, the less likely it is that you can expect savings in excess of that amount of money.
It is in your own hands as to how you lower the cost of energy. If you have never replaced your old windows and doors then it should come as no surprise when you get hefty energy bills through the post. The older timber windows …
If you are looking for ways to increase the size of your home then you may have already considered many different options. Once upon a time, the easiest way to get a bigger home was to simply move house however, a very slow property market and falling house prices have made it very difficult for most people to move. This is especially true for those first time buyers who bought before the market crashed, are stuck in negative equity and have an ever expanding family. The only way to add to your home when you cannot afford to sell or find somewhere better is to invest money in your own home by adding an extension.
There are many possible ways to add an extension to your home however some are easier (and cheaper) than others. Traditionally people have opted for bricks and mortar extensions however; these can generally end up …Continue To Full Story
We do so many different things in our homes e.g. sleep, dine, lounge, watch TV, study, that it can sometimes be difficult finding the necessary space to do them all. If you have the correct number of bedrooms in your home to accommodate everyone who lives there then you are fine on that score, but if you have little room to eat or relax then it can be a problem.
Our kitchens and living rooms can often become cluttered the longer we reside in a home which can at times result in that unpleasant feeling of claustrophobia. When you reach this stage, home living no longer provides the pleasurable experience that it should which is when you should consider the installation of a brand new conservatory.
Conservatories in Ilkley are the ideal replacement for any lost space in your living or dining room as they provide you with a spacious …
