If you’ve ever lived somewhere where the boiler has broken, you’ll understand just how disruptive it is to a home and a family. If your boiler is working too hard, you’ll see the difference with significantly increased gas bills. Your radiators won’t be as warm as they should be and your water will never hit that temperature sweet spot you want for having a bath or doing the dishes. There’s also a big health and safety issue too with the potential for real dangers like poisonous carbon monoxide leaks that could occur. As the gas is colourless and scentless, it’s hard to tell if this is even an issue, and hence why you should get your boiler serviced at least once a year for an annual service. Landlords by law must also have a gas safety check carried out every 12 months. Read additional info at https://www.peterbrown.net/boiler-service-harrow.html.
Use tin foil. One way to prevent unnecessary heat loss from radiators, particularly on those attached to external walls, is to use heat reflective aluminium foil behind the radiator. This prevents heat disappearing through the wall by reflecting it back into the room, says Sophie Neuburg, energy campaigner for charity Friends of the Earth. Foil specially designed for the purpose can be bought for under £10. “You can even use good quality kitchen foil,” says Carl Brennand, assistant manager of website Moneymagpie, although it’s generally not as effective. Setting timers on heating is important. “It’s a myth that keeping it on all day is better,” says Luthra. If it’s very cold, the timer should be set to switch the heating on earlier, rather than turning the thermostat up to warm the house rapidly, according to Age UK.
Get a new boiler: Modern boilers are more efficient than older models. If your boiler is more than 10 years old it will be far less efficient than a newer model, consider replacing it with a more efficient condensing boiler. Costs and savings vary depending on your current boiler’s efficiency, fuel type and your house type but fuel bill savings can be significant.

They take up far too much wall space and much of the extra heat they generate is often blocked off partly or fully by furniture that’s put in front of it. You end up paying a lot of money to heat the back of your sofa while you and your family feel the need to put extra clothing on to keep warm. Underfloor heating is a solution that more and more Harrow homeowners are turning to so that they can keep their rooms at the temperature they want and to rid their walls of unsightly radiators. To find out if it’s suitable for your home, why not get in touch with us and speak to a Peter Brown underfloor heating installer? Underfloor heating – what is it and what are its benefits? Peter Brown’s underfloor heating installers specialise in wet systems which pump hot water through the pipes under your floor. When your Peter Brown underfloor heating installer visits you, you can discuss with them the system that’s better for you. We only install electric (dry) underfloor heating in bathrooms that will be tiled over as it is generally too expensive to run in large areas.

The heat from the underfloor pipes rises to provide warmth to your home and the temperature is fully controllable. You can choose the temperature you want for each room in which you’ve installed your underfloor heating system. Energy experts agree that underfloor heating means lower energy bills because they don’t have to work as hard to provide you with the warmth you want as radiators do. Which rooms can I install underfloor heating in? The most popular rooms for underfloor heating installation among Peter Brown customers are the bathroom, bedrooms, the kitchen, and the living room. We’re being asked more and more by clients to retrospectively fit underfloor heating in their conservatories so that they can get better use out of them during the colder months.

It’s easy to turn the thermostat all the way up when it’s freezing cold but what temperature should your house be? Aim to set your main room thermostat somewhere between 18°C and 21°C.It’s also a good idea to set your thermostat to one temperature and then use a timer to turn it on and off when you need the heating most. That way you won’t waste excess energy from leaving the heating on too high, for too long.
