The eye-watering predicted figures of increased household energy prices are going to have a major impact on the cost of living. Even with government price caps and guarantees, the cost of fuel is sure to make a serious dent in household budgets.

Everyone is set to see higher energy bills, in particular the new generation of people now working from home. The convenience of WFH may be a win-win for employers and staff alike, but it’s the homeworker who will be footing the bill for keeping warm in their home office, as energy prices continue to skyrocket.

Blankets, hot water bottles and turning the thermostat down a notch or two may save a few pennies, but how about a more sustainable solution to keeping the heat up and costs down this winter?

The answer could lie in investing in a purpose-built, standalone homeworking space: a garden office. Not just a stylish addition to your outdoor area, a garden office will cut down on your energy use.

In this short guide, you’ll find out more about the benefits of switching to working from a small, quality timber garden office. This cosy and affordable alternative to working from the front room will help you save money on energy and create a more productive and enjoyable WFH experience.

Other ways to save

So you've got a comfortable new garden office, ready for winter, but why stop there? Here are some additions you can make to your building to create extra insulation and save even more on heating:

  • Add a sedum roof. Great for wildlife and with a beautiful aesthetic, a sedum roof also keeps you warm by adding another layer of insulation to your new office.
  • Rugs and carpet. As well as adding style to your cosy office, rugs and carpet provide another layer of insulation, trapping more warmth and giving comfort underfoot.
  • Curtains or blinds. Not only great for privacy and security but curtains or blinds will also help keep the heat in during winter and create much-needed shade during summer.
