Energy Efficient Combi Boilers
Modern boilers are more efficient for several reasons, but their main advantage is that they are all condensing boilers. Replacing an old gas boiler with an A-rated high-efficiency boiler and improving your heating controls will significantly cut your home's carbon dioxide emissions, and could save you as much as £300 a year.
A heating programmer will allow you to switch one or more circuits on at times which suit your lifestyle. Most programmers allow you to set preferences, for example to activate heating and hot water systems at varying times to fit in with your requirements.
A room thermostat simply switches the heating system on and off as necessary. It works by sensing the air temperature, switching on the heating when the air temperature falls below the thermostat setting, and switching it off once this set temperature has been reached.
Thermostatic Radiator Valves
Fitting thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) to a home central heating system can improve comfort, convenience and energy efficiency by providing temperature control for individual rooms. TRVs are especially useful where occupancy and desired temperatures differ from those in the main living rooms.
Heat Reflecting Radiator Foil
A radiator reflector is a thin sheet of foil applied to the wall behind, and closely positioned behind a domestic heating radiator. Once fitted, radiator reflector foil will improve heat circulation, warming the room up faster and saving you money by reducing heating bills. You could potentially save up to £40 per year.
