How to Save Money on Heating: Part 4

All Guides   /   How to Save Money on Heating: Part 4

This is our fourth and final blog post on how to lower your energy bills. Previous posts have included everything from fixing draughts to adjusting each radiator’s thermostatic valve. This time we’re looking at three services that ProTech offers, which will each bring multiple benefits to your home and help you to make savings both now and in the future.

Book an annual service

An annual service by a Gas Safe engineer from ProTech brings so much peace of mind. First of all, you’ll know that a registered professional has inspected the entire boiler and central heating system for faults and leaks, ensuring that it’s safe for you and your family. In the process, an annual service nips potential problems in the bud and helps to keep the boiler running at peak performance. Efficiency plays a major role in keeping utility bills down, as the more smoothly the system runs, the less energy it uses.

As well as reducing your energy bills, an annual service prevents major problems from arising, which could prove costly if you haven’t taken out our Warranty Care. It also guarantees that your boiler remains within warranty, saving you a large outlay in the event that the boiler needs replacing whilst it’s still covered by the manufacturer.

Have smart controls fitted

Our engineers are experts at installing smart heating controls from Nest and Hive. These are a brilliant addition to any home, as they allow you to control your heating with ultimate precision around the clock. Both systems come with a portable thermostat, which means that you can move it around the house with you for easy access whenever required. Even better, if you download the app to your smartphone, you can check and change your home’s temperature in just a few taps from anywhere in the world.

Smart controls aren’t just a cool gadget, as they also help homeowners to save money on their bills. On average, Hive customers have cut their annual energy expenditure down by £120 and the same goes for those who choose Nest. This is because you can programme the boiler to never go under or over certain limits, plus both smart systems provide useful insight into your home’s energy usage, encouraging you to improve it further.

Whether you choose Nest or Hive, you’re guaranteed to optimise the amount of energy you use for heating your property. And did we mention that they can be connected to Alexa and Google Home? The result is the ability to check and change the temperature simply by calling out to your home assistant!

Get a new boiler installed

If your boiler has seen better days or is simply reaching the 15-year mark, it’s probably time to upgrade to a new model. There have been huge advances in boiler technology over the last few years, so no matter which model you choose it will definitely be more efficient than your old one.

Boiler and central heating efficiency greatly helps to decrease the amount of energy used on a daily basis, which accumulates over time to bring you attractive savings. On top of this, a more efficient boiler will reduce your carbon footprint, so you’ll also be doing your bit for the environment. If the purchasing of a new boiler is outside of your budget, get in touch to find out about our affordable payment plans.
