How to Optimise Your Central Heating

Central Heating Repair & Boiler Service in Warwick

Do you want to make the most of your heating without replacing the boiler or radiators? The good news is that there are measures you can take to get the most out of the energy you use, and so reduce your energy bills and CO2 output.

We all appreciate a warm, properly heated home when it’s cold outside, but the cost of the energy needed to provide that heat can be a worry – that’s why taking control of how and when you use your heating could make all the difference, and allow you to heat your home without that anxious wait for the bill.

Temperature Controls

Using thermostats effectively can make a significant difference to your heating’s performance and this can be achieved without the need for a plumber.

Radiator valve settings: these limit the water in-flow to the radiator and allow you to control the heat of individual radiators.

Room thermometers: allow you to set the ideal temperature for your home. This is usually between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius. Did you know that you can have room thermometers installed without having to renew your system itself? And if your thermometers are old, it is advisable to have them replaced with modern, more accurate ones.

Boiler thermometer: if you have room temperature controls you can set you boiler thermometer quite high – this allows for fast and more efficient heating, while the room controls limit overall temperature. In this case setting the boiler too low may simply limit its effectiveness and not actually save you any money.
