Turn Off Unused Radiators
If you only use certain rooms in your home, use the valves on each radiator to turn it off to avoid unnecessarily heating a room. You can also do this to reduce the heat from each radiator and make further savings.
Lower Temperature Flow
Most gas boilers are set to temperature to give you hot water. Usually, this is around 80 degrees, but you can easily change this to make further savings of up to 10% per year. The Heating and Hot Water Council recommended 55 degrees but lower it slowly to find a temperature you are comfortable with.
Have Shorter Showers
Keeping your daily showers to around 4 minutes can help you to save water and heating costs.
Turn Off Preheat Settings
Does your boiler fire up to maintain a set temperature? If so, and you find you don’t need this to happen, turn it off. Changing the settings can significantly impact the energy your boiler uses and save you a lot of money on your bills.
