Quooker Taps

Quooker Taps are the leading brand of boiling water taps as they produce boiling water at a push of a button. However, it’s more than just convenience that make these taps such a worthy investment. These taps can help you save money in a multitude of ways and can replace the need to ever boil water in a kettle, or in a pan for cooking.

The water only boils as it exits the tap, meaning that your boiler won’t ever be triggered into action. Similarly, you’ll find yourself saving money on your water bills and lessen your water wastage as Quooker taps allow you to control the exact amount of water you require. This means no more wasted water for a single cup of tea or during the cooking process.


Cold Start Taps

Cold Start Taps, also known as Eco Turn taps, are products designed to reduce the chance of accidentally triggering the water boiler when hot water isn’t required. Cold start taps will always produce cold water unless you actively turn the lever to produce hot water. These taps save massively on hot water wastage and can help prolong the lifespan of the boiler itself – and in turn, can save you money.

Water softener

There are various levels of water hardness across the UK. Those living in hard water areas will all be too aware of the issues that limescale can cause in our kitchens and bathrooms. This limescale can be very damaging to appliances, taps and showers – meaning that you may have to routinely replace these products. Not only does this limescale cause damage over time, but it also can look very unsightly on chrome ware, glass, and tile. You may find yourself wasting washing products, such as shampoo or soap as it can be difficult to create a decent lather with hard water. A water softener will prevent all these issues and will save you money in the long run.



Choose Tiles Over Vinyl Flooring

There are many luxury vinyl flooring products and brands on the market, however, vinyl flooring is susceptible to scratches and damage over time – regardless of the initial price of the product. On the other hand, a quality tile will always save you money when installed correctly. Tiles last longer than vinyl flooring because they are harder to scratch, or stain, They generally have a much longer service life.

Another bonus of  tiles is that tile usage is far more versatile in comparison to vinyl flooring. Vinyl flooring has its limitations regarding being cut to fit around fitted furniture, whereas tiles can be installed beneath fitted furniture. This means that if you ever decided to change your bathroom or kitchen layout in the future, you wouldn’t have to rip up tiles, unlike vinyl flooring.

Electric underfloor heating

Electric underfloor heating was once regarded as a luxury, however electric underfloor heating (when used in conjunction with tile insulation boards) is very cost-efficient and can save you money on your heating bills.  Not only is the initial purchase of electric underfloor heating relatively low cost, but it’s simple to install and highly economical to run. The combination of an electric underfloor heating system and insulation boards enhances underfloor heating systems by reducing downward heat loss.

*It is important to note that underfloor heating can be expensive to run, but only if it’s fitted on an uninsulated floor and not used with a digital programmer and thermostat.
