Christmas Central Heating Tips

Here is central heating advice that will help you keep the heat in as well as saving money at Christmas.


Make use of any heat from the little sunshine we get by opening curtains on south-facing windows. Shut them at night to keep warmth in. Check them for draughts to make sure heat is not escaping.

Getting the most from radiators

Don’t forget to dust your radiators. They work more efficiently then, and it alleviates allergy sufferers too. Avoid blocking them with clothes or towels. The heat must circulate around them.

Consider upgrading your boiler or at least get it serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

Turn off radiators in unused rooms

If the pressure in your boiler is too low, you can top it up using its filling loop, which is a small tap that you turn to add water to the system to restore the pressure.

Stopping draughts

Heat escapes easily from unsealed door frames: fit drought-resistant strips – You’ll notice the difference.

Also, you can fit draught excluders to the bottom of the external doors.

Tips about water heating

  • Turn the thermostat down to save money as well as make it safer for kids.
  • Install a lower flow showerhead.
  • Use the energy-saving settings on your washing machine.
