Join Warmable as we explore practical advice to keep your boiler in top shape and your home cozy as we start the new year.
Schedule a Professional Boiler Service
Kicking off the new year with a professional boiler service is a smart move. Warmable can help schedule a qualified engineer to inspect, clean and tune your boiler to peak performance. An annual boiler service not only prevents potential breakdowns but also ensures your boiler operates efficiently, helping you with energy savings and a longer lifespan for your heating system.
Upgrade to a High-Efficiency Boiler
If your boiler is on the older side, consider upgrading to a high-efficiency model. Modern boilers are designed to be more energy-efficient, reducing your carbon footprint and lowering heating bills. Installing a new boiler can be a significant upfront cost, but the long-term savings and improved performance make it a wise investment for the new year.
Install a Smart Thermostat
Bring your heating system into the 21st century by installing a smart thermostat. These devices offer precise control over your home’s temperature, allowing you to create custom schedules, remotely adjust settings and even learn your preferences over time. The result is a more comfortable home and potential energy savings that make a positive impact on your annual heating costs.
Check and Insulate Your Pipes
Cold weather can wreak havoc on exposed pipes, leading to freezing and potential damage. Inspect your boiler’s pipes for any signs of wear or insulation gaps. Consider adding pipe insulation to prevent heat loss and avoid freezing during the winter months. Properly insulated pipes not only protect your boiler but also contribute to energy efficiency.
Bleed Your Radiators Regularly
Radiators that are not heating evenly could indicate trapped air, hindering the system’s efficiency. Make a habit of bleeding your radiators regularly to release any air pockets. This simple maintenance task ensures that hot water circulates freely, providing consistent warmth throughout your home.
Monitor The Pressure Of Your Boiler
Keep an eye on your boiler’s pressure gauge and ensure it remains within the recommended range. Low pressure can lead to insufficient heating, while high pressure may cause damage. Consult your boiler’s manual for the correct pressure levels and make adjustments as needed to maintain optimal performance. See our guide for more information if your boiler is losing pressure.
Consider Renewable Energy Options
Embrace a more sustainable approach to heating by exploring renewable energy options. Solar panel systems, heat pumps and biomass boilers are eco-friendly alternatives that can significantly reduce your carbon footprint. The new year is an opportune time to explore these technologies and make a positive impact on both the environment and your household’s energy consumption.
