The central heating system. It’s a core part of your home, keeping dwellers warm inside during those cold winter evenings. Without central heating we would be reduced to using costly heaters and tonnes and tonnes of blankets.
The point is, central heating systems are a requirement. This is why we need to look after them so we can get the most out of them. Below are some tips from our heating installation experts.
Get Your Heating System Serviced
For exactly how long have you had your heating system? Too long to remember? Chances are it’s not in the pristine condition when it was first purchased.
With any heating appliances or systems you should always get them serviced by the professionals. Better to be prepared and safe than run into problems when you need the heat the most.
Invest In A Programmable Thermostat
A reliable way of saving energy and cutting back on costs, a programmable thermostat for your central heating system is a smart investment to look into. They can really maximise the efficiency of your heating.
When you are coming back home from a long hard day at work, once set, a thermostat can heat up your home ahead of time and at just the right temperature you want. As soon as you walk in that door you will be met with a nice warm and homely environment to rest in.
Bleed Your Radiators
Another way of getting the most out of your heating system is to make sure you bleed your radiators from time to time. The best period for this practise is before the heating season.
A tell-tale sign your radiators require bleeding is when you turn the heating system on and the top of your radiator does not emit heat. In worst cases your radiator won’t emit any heat at all, leaving your central heating system on, costing money and being freezing as a result.
The problem arises due to trapped air bubbles and the only way of reversing the problem is by letting the air out of your radiators. For a comprehensive guide on how to bleed your radiators read on for more here.
Check For Air Leaks Around The House
Air leaks are the bane of any owner of a central heating system. Existing air leaks allows the heat you pay for escape from your home, making you keep the heating on for longer and not experiencing the system at its most efficient.
Some of the most common air leaks are found around doors and windows. There’s no need to fret, however, as you can seal the cracks and gaps yourself quite easily with a sealant. The more your house is sealed the warmer you and yours will be.
