Do I need a new boiler Mirfield: Is your home ready for Winter?

Winter can bring all sorts of challenges so it is important to be prepared. It is important to prepare yourself and your home for the cold weather. As the cold winter months kick in, we have to gradually turn the heating up in order to keep warm and comfortable in our day to day lives.

In the winter months, it is important to be smart when heating your home, otherwise you can run into trouble. Here are 3 top tips to prep your home for winter:

 Do I need a new boiler Mirfield: Are you qualified for a winter fuel allowance?

In the UK, anyone aged over 65 or a recipient of a state pension is entitled to claim a winter fuel allowance, to ensure that they can keep warm through the cold winter months. A Winter Fuel payment is a one-off, tax-free payment of between £100 and £300 made during the winter to help with heating costs, it is made to households with someone over Pension Credit age. A winter fuel allowance can make investing in a new boiler a lot more affordable than you may have first considered. Plus, with our buy now, pay later scheme, you can invest in your home without having the fork out a large sum of money at once.

It is important to check that Parents or Grandparents are claiming their winter fuel allowance.

 Do I need a new boiler Mirfield: Draught proof your home

Draught-proofing is one of the cheapest and most efficient ways to save energy and ensure that all of the heat your boiler is producing is used correctly. Letting cold draughts into your home means that you are literally throwing money out of the window.

Even if you are investing in a new boiler for your home it is important to make sure that your home is draught proof, otherwise you are literally throwing the heat your new boiler is producing out of the door. Saving warm air means less energy is used to heat your home, so you’ll save money as well as making your home warm and cosy. It’s a win win, invest in a new economical boiler and draught proof your home.

 

 Do I need a new boiler Mirfield: Is your home insulated?

About a quarter of the heat in your house is lost through the roof, so having good loft and wall cavity insulation could keep the house warm with less energy used. These improvements needn’t cost the earth, as there are a number of government grants and schemes that subsidise insulation installation. Contact your local council.

Installing a new boiler is a great way of finding a more economical method of heating your home but make sure your loft is insulated too. Once you’ve produced the heat, it is important to keep it in your home.

Do I need a new boiler Mirfield: Bonus tip!

Stock up on hot chocolate! It doesn’t matter if it’s pouring down with freezing cold rain, in the middle of a blizzard or gale force winds, sitting down on the sofa with a mug of hot chocolate in winter with your central heating on is one of the best feelings ever.

Smart Thermostats Batley

Smart Thermostats Batley

Smart Thermostats Batley: what are they?

Smart thermostats are a smart technology that let you remotely control your home’s temperature via a tablet, smartphone or desktop for greater control over your central heating. Giving you complete flexibility with how you heat your home in the winter months ahead.
A typical room thermostat just lets you change the temperature in your home using a dial or control panel. A smart thermostat gives you more efficient, more user friendly and more accessible control over your home’s heating, even when you are away from your home.

Smart Thermostats Batley: How does a smart thermostat benefit me?

As the price of energy continues to rise, newer and smarter technology is being continually developed to make heating systems as efficient as possible. Boilers are now more efficient than ever, but heating your home can still be expensive if you’re not smart with your usage. With up to 60% of household energy consumed through central heating, even small changes in your usage can produce significant financial savings.
The ability to remotely control a home’s temperature appeals to those with hectic schedules; if you have a late-running meeting there’s no reason to heat an empty home, right? On holiday and realised you forgot to turn off the heat? Fixing the error is just a few taps away on your smartphone. As long as you have an internet connection, whether Wi-Fi or 4G, you can adjust your heating to suit you and your family.
Smart thermostats don’t immediately save you money on installation, but as they provide the ability to heat your home more efficiently which should save you in the long run. You will also receive reports about your usage, which can help you better understand your heating usage, and adjust your behaviour and preferences accordingly to save money.

Smart Thermostats Batley: The difference between smart controls and traditional central heating controls?

Traditional central heating thermostats offer a basic level of control and allows users to change the temperature of the whole house, but these are often left at the same temperature and rarely changed. Settings are usually changed via a dial or a keypad. Smart controls offer a much greater level of control – usually over the internet via a smartphone, tablet or computer – as well as a more intuitive user interface, making it simpler and easier to take control of your energy usage.
Smart Thermostats Batley: How do smart thermostats adapt to your needs
Each smart thermostat control is supplied with a pre-set programme that can then be easily modified to suit your requirements. Smart Thermostats are highly adaptable and can be programmed to work with a number of devices, so you can schedule the heating to work with your busy family life.

 

Smart thermostats can really help you to take control of your central heating system and use it as and when you need it. So you can set your central heating to the perfect temperature for you getting in from a busy day at work, perfect!

How to avoid a boiler break down Wakefield

How to avoid a boiler break down Wakefield

How to avoid a boiler break down Wakefield

At BrightGas we provide a boiler breakdown service, aiming to make boiler breakdowns as stress-free and hassle-free as possible. However, we want to try and ensure that your boiler never reaches this point. With a little bit of TLC your boiler should stay in great shape for many years, so here’s some great hints and tips that are all low-cost and affordable ways to keep your boiler working perfectly, every day of the year.

 Arrange annual gas boiler services

One of the most beneficial ways to prevent your boiler breaking down by getting an annual service. At BrightGas we can arrange for a Gas Safe-registered engineer to come to your property once a year so they can check your boiler is working perfectly. A gas boiler service will ensure that your boiler is in a good working condition and that every component is working as it should, which should significantly reduce the chance of your boiler breaking down in the future. Plus, protect you and your family from harmful carbon monoxide poisoning.

Insulate your pipes

The best way to keep on top of pipes during the winter is to protect them with a foam layer (called lagging) which will help to prevent them freezing and bursting. This helps to keep the frost away from outside pipes, as the warmth of the pipe combined with frost can allow pipes to burst. Pipe insulation – available at almost every DIY and home improvement store – will stop your pipes from seizing up when the thermostat drops below zero.

Your gas boiler’s condensate pipes are at particular risk of freezing during the winter, and when these freeze, a boiler breakdown is almost inevitable. Pipe insulation won’t only protect your boiler – it will also protect your wallet, as it will improve the efficiency of your central heating system. Because this home improvement is so cheap, and because it can save you money, it should pay for itself in a couple of years.

 Know your boiler

Knowing how your boiler works will give you advanced warning of any faults or problems.

The water pressure should typically at a similar bar constantly, and should not significantly alter. If you notice that the water pressure on your boiler is wrong, it is important to ask for advice sooner rather than later.

You should also know what to do when your pilot light goes yellow or if your pilot light blows out.

 

Don’t be afraid to call out the experts!

One of the key ways to avoid a boiler break down Wakefield and beyond is get help sooner rather than later. When you’re worried that your boiler isn’t working properly, you should call our Boiler breakdown service immediately. Waiting until the whole system goes defunct is unnecessary and can actually be dangerous to the boiler.

5 Tips to reduce winter energy bills in Dewsbury

5 Tips to reduce winter energy bills in Dewsbury

5 Tips to reduce winter energy bills in Dewsbury

Winter can bring all sorts of challenges so it is important to be prepared. It is important to prepare yourself and your home for the cold weather, plus being prepared can make a real saving to your energy bill’s in Dewsbury this winter.

In the winter months it is important to be smart when heating your home, otherwise you can run into trouble. Here are 5 top tips to prep your home for winter:

  1. Make sure there is no air in your system. e.g. in the radiators. A tell-tale sign that there is air in the system is that your radiators have cool spots or maybe even go cold towards the top of the radiator. Another sign is that the pipes may become noisy meaning air being pushed around the system. This more than likely means that your radiators need bleeding.
  2. Maintain your radiators by using an inhibitor as this will help to preserve the inside of your radiators and reduce the chance of corrosion. You can also use a magnetic filter to help maintain a good healthy boiler. By using simple products such as an inhibitor or boiler filters such as “Magnaclean” you can help to extend the life and even improve efficiency of your heating system.
  3. Add insulation to your pipes. By adding insulation, you reduce the chances of your pipes freezing, meaning a constant flow of water is always available. If the pipes do freeze you run the risk of damage to the pipes meaning that there’s a pretty high chance that you’ll have a leak once they have thawed.
  4. Insulate your home before the winter. Heating the house is one thing but keeping it warm and reducing energy loss is a sure way to save money on your ever rising energy bills. By having your home correctly insulated you could reduce your energy bills in Dewsbury by up to £250 per year. These improvements needn’t cost the earth, as there are a number of government grants and schemes that subsidise insulation installation. Contact your local council.
  5. Have your boiler serviced by a qualified Gas Safe engineer. This will not only help you find out if your boiler is still efficient but it also gives you a peace of mind that there are no problems coming into the winter months. A regular service will also check for any dangerous leaks, such as carbon monoxide which could be incredibly dangerous for you and your family.

These top tips can really help to reduce your winter energy bill’s in Dewsbury. There’s always ways to make your home warmer and more energy efficient without splashing the cash!

Buy a new boiler before the winter period kicks in

Being outside in the cold, winter months can be miserable and no-one should have to put up with the same conditions in their own home. Your home should be a safe haven in the winter, somewhere to feel comfortable and warm, protected from the elements – which is why, if your boilers needs replacing, it’s important to buy a new boiler before the winter period kicks in.

During the summer months your heating is barely touched, meaning that it is easy to put off thinking about your boiler. However, as the first cold week of Autumn has appeared, purchasing a new boiler earlier you may find that there are more benefits to reap.

Installing a new system before the weather turns reduces the chance of mid-winter breakdowns, not only this but upgrading to a more energy efficient boiler will also save you money in the long term as well as reduce your carbon footprint. There’s also a safety element involved, upgrading from an older system reduces the danger of Carbon Monoxide leakages which could be putting you and your household at risk. Plus, you’re much more likely to avoid long waiting lists for installations in the autumn than the cold winter months.

 

Updating your boiler to a newer model can be a good investment that could save money on household bills for years to come. Although they can seem expensive initially, new models are far less prone to breakdowns and maintenance problems, so updating your system could save you time and money in the long run.

Almost two thirds of energy bills in the UK  are spent on processing your boiler so an efficient boiler makes a big difference. Whether you decide to invest in a basic model or a top of the range product, a new energy-efficient boiler can really save you money.

As well as saving on your energy bills, updating your boiler to a more energy efficient model will mean improved performance, better water pressure and fewer breakdowns. What more could you want in the cold winter months!

 

Investing in a new boiler now before the cold weather kicks can really help you prepare for the cold winter months ahead. Plus, getting in now means that you beat the queue.

The cost of your new boiler will vary depending on the type and size of system that you decide to install. There are now a wide range of combination and conventional boilers available, as well as some alternative systems that offer state-of-the-art technology to heat your home. However, at Bright Gas we understand that forking out for a new boiler can be a real expense that you may not necessarily be able to afford. We can now offer boiler finance on brand new efficient boilers on a monthly payment plan.
