Choosing the Right Boiler for Your Newton Le Willows Home

Cutting The Cost Of Heating Your Newton Home

Here are some tips on cutting the cost of heating your Newton home:

1. Change to thermostatic radiator valves

Thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) are the dials on your radiators. They control the flow of water in and out of the radiator rather than changing the boiler itself. They keep the temperature constant, and the benefit is that they allow for different temperatures in different rooms. For example, you might keep the bedrooms cooler than the living room by adjusting the TRVs.

2. Install a 7 day, programmable thermostat

Programmable and smart thermostats are getting more affordable and they can be easily fitted to an existing system. Because they allow different routines each day, they save energy by only heating your home when you are in it. They can be used to lower the temperature when you are out or asleep. They are more effective than traditional thermostats as those do not allow for fine tuning.

3. Try out weather compensation

Weather compensation controls work with a thermostat on an outside, north wall. It sends data on the temperature outside to the boiler which fine tunes the temperature. A weather compensation system does not suit everyone – your radiators will not get very hot, for example, as the boiler maintains a steady temperature indoors when temperatures change outdoors.

4. Use your boiler controls effectively

Central heating controls must be configured properly to suit your lifestyle. Taking a couple of hours now learning to use your thermostat will save you money over its lifetime.

5. Make sure you have the right kind of boiler

If you have multiple bathrooms, a standard combi boiler may not be the ideal way to supply hot water. Ask your Newton Le Willows central heating engineers or Warrington Plumbers about fitting a pressurised hot water cylinder system.

6. Have a boiler check-up

You should consider boiler servicing Newton Le Willows every year. Ask your plumber to give your heating system the once-over as rusty pipes and air-filled radiators can not heat your home properly.
