Heating tips

Use your central heating timer to turn heating on and off and not the thermostat.
If you decide to use the thermostats, turn them down by just one degree, will cut 10% off your heating bill.

Keep your radiators clear.
For example, do not put a large sofa in front of the radiator as it will absorb a lot of the heat.

Well-maintained radiators will function more efficiently and save energy, so regularly bleed radiators to release trapped air.

For properties with high ceilings, placing a shelf just above the radiator helps to deflect the heat into the centre of the room rather than it drifting straight up to the ceiling.

Put radiator panels behind radiators fixed to external walls to help reflect the heat back into the room.

Remove all draughts around the house to help stop the heat from escaping.

Replace boilers older than 15 years old.
Installing a new condensing boiler and controls could save you more money.

Prevent heat escaping through pipes that carry hot water from the boiler to the radiators by insulating the pipes with a foam cover.
