Peter Brown opens new shower installations offer in London. Here are several home heating, plumbing and energy saving tips from Peter Brown, a proud to be a well respected, reliable and family run plumbing, boiler and central heating expert in Harrow offering fantastic levels of service.
Many homeowners and landlords in the harrow area and beyond are tempted to attempt DIY on their new bathroom installation. It’s a tempting thought – you save money on labour charges and it’s a project you can get stuck into. However, ask any professional bathroom installations company and they will tell you that, while most DIY-ers with limited skills can actually replace their own bathrooms, the end result lacks the precision, skill, and aesthetic excellence that it would have if done by a time-served craftsman. Many others think about becoming a project manager, allocating different work at different stages to a plumber, a plasterer, a tiler, an electrician, a decorator, and a unit installer. It might sound cheaper but that’s multiple tradesmen’s profit margins you’ll be paying together with the headache of getting the right people in at the right time. Based in Harrow and serving the community across North London, the Peter Brown bathroom installation team is almost certain to be the quicker, cheaper option with a guarantee of a beautiful new bathroom under guarantee at the end.

Watch out for mini-draughts. “Lots of draught comes through the letterbox,” says Potter. It’s worthwhile putting an extra barrier there in the form of a “brush”. They may be a nightmare for junk-mailers trying to force through that 15th pizza takeaway offer, but they could prevent a chill breezing through the house. The same goes for keyholes, which can be protected with “simple circular (keyhole covers) that slip over the top”, says Potter, especially with the older, wider keyholes. Cat or dog flaps can also be filled with some sheep’s wool insulation or pieces of blanket. “It’s amazing how even a small draught can make a room a lot colder, so if you can cut that bit of air out it immediately makes a difference,” says Potter.
Insulate your pipes: Insulating your hot water pipes is a quick and easy way to save energy. As well as reducing heat loss from your system, pipe lagging will also prevent pipes from getting too cold in winter, and therefore prevents pipes bursting. Pipe insulation is an easy DIY install – you can buy foam insulation tubes online or from a DIY store and slip them over your pipes. In a typical 3-bed semi-detached house, materials will cost around £20, and you will save around £3 a year on your energy bills, as well as reducing the possibility of expensive repair bills from burst pipes.

Here’s how to keep your house warm with some easy foil insulation. Cover a thin sheet of card with tinfoil and place it behind your radiators (if you’re feeling particularly crafty you can make it T-shaped so it sits on your radiator brackets). It’ll reflect the heat back into your rooms, meaning they warm up faster and retain more heat. If DIY isn’t your thing, you can also buy ready made foil insulation.
