How To Run Your Heating and Hot Water Efficiently This Winter to Save Money!

Are you looking for tips on effectively using your heating and hot water this winter? Ensuring your gas boiler is working correctly and fully serviced will give you a head start on a more efficient system and increase efficiency. Modern boilers are designed to have a lifespan of 10-15 years and taking care of your boiler will enable you to get the best from it for longer.

Annual servicing is the best course of action for preserving the lifespan of your boiler, and Gas Safe registered engineers can help you identify any issues and rectify them. But what can you do to ensure you use your heating system effectively without wasting money or energy?

These tips will help you out.

Lower your Temperature Flow

This is a quick and easy way to ensure you save money on heating and hot water. All you need to do is manually lower the predetermined temperature to the one you feel comfortable with. The Heating and Hot Water Council suggest aiming for 60 degrees, 55, if possible, for maximum savings.

Turn Off Preheat Settings

If your boiler is set to constantly keep your hot water at a specific temperature, have a look to see if you can do this. The reason is that the system will fire up to maintain this temperature even if you aren’t using it. Either turn it off entirely or adjust it only to keep this temperature at certain times of the day.
