A fully functional central heating system is a must in every household to provide warmth all year round. However, we’re all feeling the financial pinch at the moment and the prospect of a new boiler or repairs when our central heating breaks down can be worrying – in these times of fuel poverty, many people have to think extremely hard about whether they can afford to pay for a new boiler. What most people don’t realise is that a central heating system working efficiently will be quietly saving you money in the long run, especially if it has been installed by a professional central heating and boiler installation company.
My central heating works fine most of the time – why should I spend money to change it?
If your central heating system isn’t working at 100% efficiency then it is wasting energy which can only result in you paying increased central heating bills. It may also mean that you cannot regulate the temperature of each room effectively, causing unnecessary heating of unoccupied rooms – therefore costing you more money – or, worse, you finding yourself within the heating on full and still needing to wear another jumper. Although you will be paying to upgrade or repair your system in the short term, the savings you will make on your fuel bills month after month will ease your finances long term.
Maybe I need to upgrade my system – what should I do?
If your boiler breaks down or it’s time for a new system, you need a fully Gas Safe Registered professional who can evaluate your property, sit down with you to work out your requirements and budget, and explain exactly what you need and where. A professional central heating installer will be able to quickly and effectively make sure you have the right central heating system for you and your property, and they will be able to install it faultlessly so that it continues to work smoothly and efficiently year after year. This will allow you to make sure the temperature of your home can be regulated to a comfortable level for you and your family in all seasons.
Are there any other ways I can make my central heating system more efficient?
A common problem with central heating systems is the accumulation of sludge within the pipes, which means your boiler has to work harder for longer, giving it a shorter and more expensive lifespan. Blocked pipes make it difficult for heat to circulate around the house, leaving radiators cold and ineffective.
Power flushing can remove these blockages from your system, allowing the heat to circulate efficiently – this not only means your heating bills are reduced, but also that your boiler and central heating system will last for longer before needing any repairs.
