Do you dread the day when your monthly heating bill arrives? You’re not alone! Many people’s boiler expenses are more costly than they would like, however the good news is that there are things you can do to lower the cost. Here are some of the top reasons for expensive heating bills, and some suggestions on how you can reduce them:
Inefficient boiler – Oftentimes it is actually your boiler that is causing an increase in your heating costs! This can be down to several reasons – the age of the boiler, lack of proper servicing/maintenance or a boiler fault. By replacing an old and inefficient boiler with a newer, more economical version you can actually save yourself some money in the long run. Talk to your local heating company today to see if they would recommend that you replace your existing boiler.
Inefficient radiators – It is important to get the balance right when it comes to the radiators in your property. If your radiators are not large enough to heat your space your boiler will need to use more energy to heat them. This is because it takes longer for the boiler to reach the required temperature. Make sure your radiators are big enough to avoid this problem.
Constantly changing the temperature on your thermostat – We’ve all been there. You wake up on a cold Winter morning and turn the heating on at 22 degrees. A few hours later you turn it down to 16, feeling like you’re sitting in a sauna. The bad news is that this will be impacting your heating bills, as your boiler requires more energy to reach temperatures than it does o maintain. Keep things consistent and you’ll notice the difference in your heating bills.
