Although your boiler is the heart of your home’s central heating system, there are lots of other elements which can affect the heating in your home.
Old boilers, especially ones that are over 10 years old, perform much less efficiently than their modern counterparts. An older boiler can waste as much as 40% of the energy it produces, meaning it’s only 60% efficient (equivalent to a G rating). In simple terms it has to work much harder to produce the same amount of energy, which costs you more money in the long run. The older the boiler, the less energy efficient it’s likely to be.
We work with some of the most trusted and reliable brands in the industry, Worcester Bosch, Glow Worm, Vaillant and others, so we can offer you a range of A-rated energy efficient boilers that are designed to operate at 90% efficiency, or more.
We highly recommend an annual boiler service, to make sure your boiler is working as efficiently and effectively as possible and if your boiler is recently installed it be a requirement of your warranty.
If you don’t service your boiler on a regular basis, it will become less and less efficient over time, meaning it has to work harder to heat your home, which inevitably costs you more money in the long run.
You can spread the cost of your annual boiler service with one of our Boiler and Heating Service Plans, with options available to include Electrical or Plumbing Emergency cover.
Plans start from just £8 per month.
Over time, sludge can build up in your radiators and if left untreated, this sludge can work its way into your boiler, causing it to stop working properly. Here are some signs that your system could benefit from a magna cleanse or power flush.
– Cold spots on your radiators, particularly at the bottom, but pipes are hot
– Radiators require constant bleeding, or they leak discoloured water
– Noisy radiators and boiler
– Frequent breakdowns
– Boiler frequently needs to be restarted
– Some radiators struggle to heat up more than others
We recommend fitting Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRV’s), to your radiators, as this allows you to manually control the temperature of a room by changing the flow of hot water to that particular radiator. This also means you can easily switch off radiators in rooms you don’t wish to heat, which helps you to conserve energy.
Go a step further and install a SMART home system with SMART TRV’s. A Smart system gives you full control over setting the perfect temperature for individual rooms, for example you may want it to be cooler in your bedroom, but toasty warm in your living room, helping you save energy too. And if it suddenly turns cold when you’re out and about, you can pop the heating on by simply using the app on your phone or tablet, meaning you never have to come back to a cold home again.
Modern radiators heat up more quickly than those installed prior to the year 2000, due to their lower water content. This means they’re more energy efficient and cheaper to heat. So it may be worth replacing old radiators in your home, especially if you’re having a new boiler fitted too. We can help you decide which new radiators would be most suitable for your home, depending on the colour and style you prefer and most importantly the heat output required based on the size of your room (BTU).
