Improving your home is a productive idea. This not only adds to the aesthetic appeal of the property but increases the value too. However, it is not necessary that you improve your home just because you are planning to sell or rent it. Even from a personal point of view, many home improvements can be incredibly useful.
Whole home improvements are generally beneficial, you can make more out of them if energy efficiency is focused. In today’s word, when expenses and costs are both on the rise, one should be saving money wherever they can. No one will deny the fact that regular utility bills are a huge burden on our pockets. Also, the excess use of electricity and other resources is also increasing the environmental footprint.
Sealing the Leaks
If you look around your house, you will be able to identify plenty of leaks. These are responsible for moving the warm and cold air out of the house in the winters and summers respectively. So whenever the weather is about to worsen, find and seal them up. You will typically locate them around the windows and doors. Although, they can be as easily be found in the basement.
Talking about sealing the leaks, another area to seal is the ducts. If you have a forced-air heating and cooling system, then the ducts are responsible for transferring the air to the different parts of the home. In case the ducts have leaks, the air can escape from them. The Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that around a 5th of the air escapes from leaky ducts. This obviously overwhelms the system of the house and increases utility bills.
Double Glazed Windows and Doors
Insulation can be a life savior when it comes to saving money on the utility bills. And you don’t just get insulation for heat and cold but noise too. Don’t you just dislike it when the neighborhood dogs or kids won’t quiet down and you need peace? Well, the double glazed doors and windows are what you need.
This can be expensive given that two panels of glass are used instead of one. The air trapped between the two is what provides the insulation. However, in the long run, it turns out to be extremely cost-effective.
You should always check for recommendations or testimonials when choosing a glazing company to work with, I was recommended Complete Glazing Birmingham and they did a fantastic job of my home.

There are hundreds, if not thousands of airports around the world, but there is only one Birmingham Airport. This airport is quite fascinating for those who are arriving in the UK for a holiday, as well as those who are waiting to take off to other destinations around the world.
If you want to get from the airport to the city fast and easy (or the other way around), then using a service like Birmingham Airport transfers is a very good idea. It’s a very fast, convenient service and it’s affordable too.
One of the best features that is available at Birmingham Airport is their FlightSmart Service. FlightSmart sends live flight updates to a person’s Twitter account, so no one needs to worry about missing an important update about their flight.

These past 2 weeks have been an absolute nightmare! Me and my partner have split up and her jerk of an ex boyfriend from Bilston though it would be a good idea to beat my lights out…
So yeah that’s why i haven’t been posting that much.. great start to the year eh? So now i have had to get a solicitor (wolverhampton solicitors) my friend Dan has recommended them he says they work wonders, lets hope so this scumbag needs locking up.
I know this post isn’t the greatest and i’m ranting but have you ever felt so alone? Knowing that my “ex” is back with her “ex” is killing me.. Has anyone ever been in this position before? It’s gut wrenching.
I feel like i need to take some time out and just forget about everything and everyone. Things are going to change, my life isn’t how i pictured it, i work my but off to make somebody else rich why? What is the point in making somebody else rich? Why shouldn’t we all be free to do what we want, go where we want to… I am going to turn my life around and be a free person. I will keep you updated once this load of crap is over.
So, i am in the Lake District! I am currently sitting in the comfiest chair looking out of the window out onto the stunning Lake Windermere! I am in pure heaven. I thought i would write a post this morning as i haven’t wrote one for a bit and i thought you all may miss my weirdness!
Me and Lauren have decided to come away for a few days to reconnect wi Continue reading “New Year New Me”
Hello readers what a fantastic December it’s been.
I’m really feeling the Christmas spirit at the moment, me and my partner are going to put our tree up this weekend, we have been so busy we just never got around to doing it.
I love Christmas so much it’s a time where everybody winds down and relaxes, what makes Christmas for me is the quality time i get to spend with my family and friends, work just goes out the window and we have two weeks to recharge our battery’s.
Do any of you guys go abroad for Christmas? I have a friend who does and i find it really confusing, Christmas to me is cold winter nights, snow and open fire, i really hate the sun on Christmas day i know it’s a bit extreme but that’s honestly how i feel about it haha.
I still haven’t brought Christmas presents for everyone yet, this weekend is my only chance and i can bet that the bullring is going to be manic! I might have a go at shopping online, that should be fun!
Enjoy the rest of your week people ill be back Saturday.
We all love being in trends with the fashion, or at least wear something that flatters us and in which we feel comfortable. When it comes to accessories, sunglasses are among the most important, which should not miss from the wardrobe of any fashion enthusiast. Not only that they make you look cool, but they also protect your eyes from the sun rays and keep you safe from early wrinkles, both in the summer and winter. I own a pair or two, but I know I guy that buys sunglasses like their socks. He is a fashion blogger, of course, but I think his passion for sunglass is a little off.
I believe that he ended up having one pair of sunglasses for every outfit he has in the wardrobe. I mean, Continue reading “A passion for fashion, or sunglasses more precisely *** Guest post with a twist 😉 ***”
So, this afternoon me and Lauren decided to treat ourselves to a bit of late night retail therapy as she is down for the week! So, we got ourselves ready and walked out onto the pavement outside my house! Within two seconds, taxis started flooding in as normal so we just trotted over to the nearest one… but to our horror… I opened the door and it looked like someone had, had a mud fight in there and then decided to leave cans of beer on the back seats! By then, the other taxis has swarmed off trying to find there next victim! So the good old girlfriend gets her phone out and orders one, obviously with me still moaning about the state of the taxi in her ear and now complaining that we would have to wait in the cold for hours! But, as usual, the woman is always right!
The taxi she ordered was with us within 5 minutes and thankfully it was as clean as a whistle, which sadly, you don’t get them kind of taxis anymore, especially around Birmingham! So, thank you Birmingham City Taxis! Like I said to the driver, I would mention them in my blog as they definitely saved us from a mud bath! So to all the fashion freaks like me that would never ruin their attire in a million years, I would definitely recommend this taxi firm to you! A taxi should always be clean
