Heating

What can we do to improve the energy efficiency?

Heating costs may be reduced by up to 1/3 by setting adequate temperatures and using appropriate heating equipment and controls.

Tips to save energy!
  • Location of thermostats and heaters is vital to efficiencies in heating systems, as well as regular checks. Thermostats should not be influenced by sunlight, radiators or draughts and heaters should be put in an open area (without any object covering it).

  • Thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) control the heat output from radiators.

  • Ensure all external walls, roof spaces and hot water pipes are insulated and check the condition of the insulation regularly.

  • Create heating zones with different temperature requirements and turn heating off in unoccupied areas. Take account of the outside temperature and adjust heating levels according (reducing the temperature by 1°C may cut up to 10% off your heating costs).
