Warmhouse Services Ltd believes in keeping your energy bill costs to a minimum. To achieve this, you need to make sure that your central heating is running efficiently. There are several ways to help you save money on your heating costs this winter:
Have your boiler serviced annually
It is very important to have your boiler serviced. It is often overlooked or forgotten about but you could end up paying the price if it breaks down or develops a fault.
Having your boiler serviced will prolong the life of it, as well as giving you peace of mind regarding safety. A service will include checks that the boiler is not leaking, water or gas, gas pressure and any underlying faults. A boiler service is also required to keep your manufacture warranty valid and help your boiler run more efficiently in the long run.
Bleed your radiators
One common problem when switching your heating back on; is that the radiators don’t heat up as quickly as they should be and they may have areas of cold patches. This is usually solved by bleeding the radiators. This is very easy and can be done by using a bleeding key, which is available at most hardware shops. After bleeding the radiators, it is important to check your boiler pressure as the pressure could drop and may need adjusting.
Check the water pressure
If the pressure of your boiler is not right, it can cause a variety of problems for your heating. To make sure that your central heating system is working efficiently, your boiler needs to maintain the right pressure. A drop or rise in pressure can also indicate further problems such as water leaks or problems with valves. Always check your water pressure to make sure there are no underlying problems with your boiler.
If your boiler does not prove to be more efficient after completing the above tips, then it may be time for a new boiler. Warmhouse Services Ltd can upgrade and install a brand new boiler while helping to keep your energy bills down with the most cost-effective methods of heating for your home.
