Top tips for the most efficient way to run a central heating system

Loft insulation

A lot of the energy in the home escapes through the loft as heat rises. You can help to keep your home warmer by trapping the heat by using loft insulation. The best loft insulation will vary depending on your loft and home. However, there are many options available which can be relatively easy to install. While insulation is an investment, you can quickly recover the costs through savings on your heating bills.

Boiler servicing

A boiler service should take place every year to ensure there are no problems with the boiler which could lead to a breakdown. As well as this, a boiler service will make sure the boiler is safe and functional for peace of mind for yourself and the inhabitants of the house. Furthermore, a boiler service can help to make sure the central heating system is working efficiently and ensuring there are no leaks or problems. It is potential leaks that can cause costly energy bills.

Thermostatic radiator valves

While many new homes have thermostatic radiator valves fitted as standard, there are lots of households that do not take advantage of this cost-saving solution. Thermostatic radiator valves mean that you can control the temperature of the radiators in specific rooms. This means that you can focus the heat in the rooms you are in and turn off the heat in rooms that you are not using. By only heating the rooms you need to, you can save a significant amount of energy.

Get cosy

You don’t need to turn up the thermostat to full heat to feel cosy in your home. Try to save energy and money by keeping your central heating set to 18 degrees. There are many ways to make your home feel much cosier and warmer without resorting to making your boiler work overtime. Consider painting rooms in warm tones and decorating the home with candles (use fake flames for safety). Pop lots of throws and cushions over seats and invest in a thick rug to give your home a warm and cosy feel.
