Energy Saving Tips

A recent survey published by the Citizens Advice Bureau discovered that “two thirds of people think their energy bill will be higher this winter – with many living in colder homes than they would like: 62% don’t have the heating on as much, and 18% don’t use some of the rooms in their home in a bid to cut the size of their energy bills.” Here are some energy saving tips from Gas Boilers Servicing about how you can easily start saving money on your heating bills.

There are many simple things which you can do around the home to help save energy. These include turning off lights when you are not using rooms and using energy efficient bulbs. Leaving appliances on standby costs the average household £86 per year, so it is important to ensure that you turn electrical appliances off when you have finished using them. Turning your heating down by even a few degrees can save you energy and money.

Another effective way of saving energy is to ensure that your home is properly insulated. Insulation is extremely important for maintaining a warm and energy efficient home. According to a recent energy survey an estimated 25% of your heat is lost through your roof and 35% through your walls. Buying loft and wall insulation could save you up to £160 a year!

It is also always a good idea to ensure that you are on the best deal possible with your current gas supplier. Many large gas companies offer you a discount (of up to £100) if you are happy to pay by direct debit.

Giving your central heating system a power flush can help to improve efficiency and will save you money on your energy bills. A chemical power flush is by far the most effective way of cleaning out your heating system and preventing the premature failure of pumps and valves. Gas Boilers Servicing also install MagnaClean filters which prevent debris from building up inside pipes. This means that they continue to function at maximum efficiency.
