As the UK is in the middle of winter, there are homes all of the country with boilers pumping out heat. However, it is important to understand that you could be getting more out of your boiler than you currently are. Here’s some great tips to ensure you’re getting value for money from your boiler!
Get an annual boiler service
A regular boiler service is the easiest way to avoid boiler breakdowns and make sure everything is in top working order. It is best to get your boiler checked before the cold weather really kicks in, so you can be assured that your boiler is in great working order just when you need it however, if it hasn’t been serviced in a while, get it done now. Boilers should be serviced every year in order to ensure that they are safe and efficient for your family. However, a regular boiler service can ensure that all components are performing 100% effectively to get maximum heat in your home.
When the weather drops below zero, standing water in your pipes can freeze, which can block up your plumbing system. As water expands when it turns into ice, frozen pipes are also particularly likely to rupture and break. Pipe insulation is a simple, cost-effective solution to this problem. Similar to boiler services, plumbing insulation will not only reduce your likelihood of home emergencies, but will also improve the energy efficiency of your central heating and save you money in the long-term.
Whilst it is freezing outside, it is important to make sure that your pipes are protected!
Check your pressure and radiators
Take a look at your boiler’s water pressure to see if your boiler needs the pressure reducing, or if you need to call out an engineer to take a look at it. If the pressure is too low, you may be able to bring it back up to the right pressure without any difficulty, but if it is too high, you might need to speak with a Gas Safe engineer.
The start of winter is also a good time to bleed radiators. This will ensure that your central heating operates efficiently – if there is air trapped in the radiator, then it will not warm up as well as it would if it was full of water, and might not even properly warm up at all.
Although you may be jetting away to somewhere warm and sunny, it is important to not turn off central heating system completely. Turning your central heating off entirely can cause pipes to freeze and potentially burst. Keep your heating on low whilst you are away to ensure your system is being run.
