4 Ways to Increase Boiler Efficiency

I have been trying to make my home more energy-efficient recently. Improving energy efficiency isn’t just good for the environment, but also good for the wallet. After a couple of changes, I began seeing a steady decline in my energy bills.

There is a lot you can do to improve your home’s energy efficiency too. In this article, however, we are going to start with the top four ways to increase the efficiency level of your boiler. Let’s have a look, shall we? 

Regular Maintenance Is Key 

A well-maintained boiler will operate at its optimum capacity all the time. I used to skimp on regular maintenance to save money, but that was clearly a mistake because I ended up losing more heat and spending more money in the long run. 

Regular maintenance is much more affordable if you get boiler cover. If you’re looking to get covered, the company Certi UK offer packages that include regular maintenance, emergency repairs, and free boiler service if needed. It is certainly more affordable than dealing with bigger repairs yourself due to lack of maintenance. 

You can also get home emergency cover. This means you are paying for a complete coverage for the cost of regularly maintaining your boiler. Sounds like a great deal, doesn’t it? 

Automatic Thermostat 

Another thing I did to save energy is invest in a smart thermostat. It is worth noting that lowering the thermostat by 1 degree means saving up to £100 a year. Automating the process allows you to save even more without the extra hassle. 

An automatic thermostat that can be connected with a smart hub – like Google Home or Amazon Echo – gives you that extra flexibility of being able to control and monitor the interior temperature remotely. Instead of leaving the central heating on the entire day, you can have it automatically adjust the temperature when no one is home. 

Speaking of controls for your heating, it is also a good idea to fit a thermostat in every room. This allows you to individually control heating in each room in a more precise way. 

Use Additives 

Home boiler water treatment is a worthy investment to make. It serves one important purpose: keeping the water in your heating system flowing smoothly. The result is more efficient heating and prevention of corrosion and other long-term issues. 

Consult with the manual for your boiler or the repair specialists maintaining your unit about the best additives to use. There are a lot of boiler water treatment products on the market, so you should be able to find one that suits your needs and budget perfectly. 

Go Green 

The last thing you want to consider is switching to a cheaper and greener fuel. Similar to the additive we talked about earlier, there are more options when it comes to fuel for your boiler. This is a big step to take, but the long-term saving is well worth the investment

Apply these tips to start improving the energy efficiency level of your central heating. The steps you need to take to get started are very simple; the long-term effects, on the other hand, are profound and worth pursuing.
