Where does the most heat escape from in the house?

To save energy and avoid paying high electricity bills, you must optimize the use of heating in your home. To do this, you need to check where the heat is escaping the most. These heat losses may lead you to turn up the thermostat on your radiator because the heat is not being properly retained.

Most heat is often lost through windows. Many people are unaware of the condition of their windows, so it's important to keep them in good shape and check if they are not allowing heat to escape. About 25% of heat is lost through the roof, and 35% is lost through walls and window openings.

It's important to identify the weaknesses of your home, so you can determine whether you need to repair or insulate it. If your windows are made of materials like wood, it's better to replace them with double or triple glazing.

To prevent heat loss, you can also insulate the floor of your home using materials that offer the best thermal performance.
