…can you avoid beastly heating bills when it’s freezing outside?
We’ve just had the coldest start to March on record, with temperatures plummeting to -15°C in some parts of the country.
For most of us, this month’s prolonged cold snap means we’ve had the heating turned up high and running 24/7. Now we have to face the heating bills.
So what can you do to keep heating costs down? At Clarity Heating we dismiss the myth that keeping the heating on low all day is cheaper.
You’ll save energy – and money – if you only have the heating on when you need it. So investing in a timer will definitely save you money.
Thermostatic radiator valves can also help – you can have the heating higher in your living room, but keep it lower in the rooms you use least. And if you keep the living room doors closed – that will keep the heat circulating in that room.
At Clarity Heating, we’d advise you to get your boiler serviced annually by a reputable heating engineer. Depending on the type of boiler you have, our service will cost from about £80.
Our engineers are happy to come out to service and repair gas, LPG and oil boilers in Ely, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and parts of north Essex and Hertfordshire.
If your boiler is over ten years old, we’d strongly recommend getting a new, modern replacement. It will be much more efficient, and probably not as expensive as you’d think. We offer a new Viessmann boiler installation from £1,600. Don’t wait until your old boiler breaks down!
Our Clarity Heating engineers also recommend getting your radiators power flushed. For an average-sized home this will cost around £360.
And, finally, don’t be afraid to switch tariffs to get the best deal going.
