Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Simple Steps To Energy Efficiency

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 1:11 AM
Energy Efficiency
Short Summary: Some useful guidance on how to reduce energy costs in the home.

Barely a month goes by without news that the energy companies are hiking up their prices again, and we’re paying more for our gas and electricity than ever before. Sometimes switching the heating down and shivering just isn’t an option, so when you’re faced with sky-high bills, the only other option is to invest in making your home more energy efficient.

Loft and Wall Insulation

If your property has a loft, you will be losing a huge amount of heat through the ceilings and out of the roof. Putting in some effective loft insulation can keep your home far warmer and help you reduce your heating bills. If you live in a rented property, ask your landlord if they would be prepared to help fund the insulation, and keep your eyes peeled for deals on rolls of insulation from major DIY stores. Simply unroll the insulation and lay it on the floor between the joists to keep the heat from escaping and keep the cold air out. Wall insulation has to be installed by a professional, and will depend on the construction of your property. Modern houses with cavity walls can be made much cosier by injecting a filler into the cavity. Some postcode areas and people who are on certain benefits can qualify for free cavity wall and loft insulation, so check first to see if you are eligible before buying your own.


If your boiler is more than 10 years old and is not as efficient as it could be, you could save as much as £400 per year by upgrading it to a new one. There is the obvious cost associated with buying a new boiler, but the reduction in energy costs means the new boiler will pay for itself in just a few years. There are government incentives available to help you upgrade, and some of the bigger installation companies will even let you spread the cost of your new boiler over several years. Also ask your plumber to install thermostats onto your radiators which will allow you to adjust the temperature in each room and trim your bills even further.

Smart Meters

Energy Efficient LightingOne great way of reducing the amount of electricity you use is to ask your energy supplier for a smart meter, which will show exactly how much power you are using at any one time. A smart meter can also prompt you to switch off lights when not in use or think more environmentally about how you use your iron, hair straighteners, hoover and other appliances. Kids in particular are very motivated to try to get the numbers as low as possible.

Windows and Doors

Draughts underneath doors can easily be tackled by using draught excluders around the bottom of your doors or sealant strips around edges. If the problem is the doors and windows themselves, think about replacing old wooden units with modern sealed units like Rehau windows. Good quality double glazing can take up to £150 per year off your heating bills, and as well as the energy aspect  new sealed units are far more secure than standard windows.
