 Here's a list of good ways to keep Warm, and cut your bills;

  •  Good heavy curtains or blinds can cut your heating bills.
  • Set your boiler thermostat around 20˚C and only heat the rooms you use during the day.
  • Install Thermostatic Valve Controls on Radiators
  • Have a Regular Boiler Service – for maximum fuel efficiency.
  • Install a full radiator in your bathroom, chrome towel rails have much less heat output and may mean warm towels and a cold bathroom.
  • Draught-proof around the house especially windows, attic doors, external doors and letter box flaps to retain heat.

Using The System:
It is worth understanding how your Central Heating System Clock works and keep your instruction manuals.
Use a manual clock if you are not familiar with digital. If you don’t know how to set your clock and leave it as it was when fitted you will never get the temperature right.
Often it will be cold but you can’t turn it on or very warm and you can’t turn it down.

Always have a rad in the living room even if you have a fire. An extra rad costs very little to heat and is an ideal back up if your fire is not working.

Condensing Gas Boilers will cut your heating bill by as much as 30%, Consider upgrading to an "A" Rated Boiler
