A free home heating survey, such as ours, can potentially save you a significant amount on your energy bills by identifying inefficiencies in your home heating system. This comprehensive analysis covers various aspects, including your boiler’s efficiency, thermostat settings, radiator and pipework conditions, air filter, pipe sludge levels, ventilation, and chimney draught. Detecting and rectifying these inefficiencies can decrease the amount of energy your system uses, thereby reducing your bills. As a homeowner, taking advantage of this service not only promises financial savings but also contributes to an energy-efficient, environmentally friendly home.
Boiler efficiency plays a critical role in determining your home’s energy costs. An efficient boiler effectively converts fuel into heat, using less energy and consequently saving you money on heating bills. Our home heating survey includes a thorough boiler efficiency analysis, where we use advanced tools to determine your boiler’s performance. Recognizing and addressing boiler inefficiencies can lead to substantial savings on heating costs, as well as a reduction in your carbon footprint.
The settings on your thermostat can significantly impact your home’s energy consumption and, as a result, your energy costs. By ensuring that your thermostat is correctly calibrated and adjusted to your lifestyle and preferences, you can manage your energy usage more effectively. For instance, using programmable settings to reduce heating when you’re not home can lead to considerable savings. Our free home heating survey includes a full thermostat review to help you optimise these settings.
Thermostatic Radiator Valves, or TRVs, allow you to control the temperature in individual rooms, adjusting the heat output from the radiators based on your specific needs. Using TRVs effectively can reduce energy consumption and lower heating costs by ensuring that no room is overheated or heated unnecessarily. Our free home heating survey includes a comprehensive TRV check to ensure they are working correctly and contributing to an energy-efficient home.
Pipe sludge, which consists of dirt, rust, and other debris, can build up in your heating system over time, restricting water flow and causing your boiler to work harder and consume more energy. A pipe sludge level check, included in our free home heating survey, can identify this issue. If detected, measures like a power flush can clear the system, enhance efficiency, and reduce the likelihood of future breakdowns, ultimately helping to lower your energy bills.
