It is extremely apparent that across the UK, the price of heating and electricity is on the rise. As inflation continues to grow, there are many factors churches need to consider to help reduce heating costs. Luckily we are through the majority of the cold, drowning weather and can now expect to start seeing some improvements in natural light and heat. Although this may help reduce your heating bills this could also present many more issues such as the lack of cooling comfort for your attendees.

Here is a selection of things your church could consider to help lower your heating costs.

  1. Insulate Your Church – This tip focuses on insulating your roof and walls. You should look at investing in insulation materials to keep your church warm and comfortable in the winter months.
  2. Install Fans – Installing fans in your church can help reduce the amount of energy needed to keep your building cool. This will allow you to save money on your utility bill.
  3. Get Energy Efficient Lights – Lighting is another area where you can make improvements to your church to save money. Look for lights that use less wattage.
  4. Consider Solar Panels – If you live in a climate that gets cold winters, then solar panels may be an option for you. These panels would collect the sun’s rays throughout the day and convert them into power.
  5. Use LED Lighting – LEDs use much less energy than other lighting options. They are also long-lasting and can last up to 50,000 hours.
