Let Your Medway Heating Engineer Help You Become Energy Efficient
In the depths of the recession it has now become more imortant than ever to become more energy efficient in the home – there are not just economic benefits but also enviromental benefits that go hand in hand with efficiency.
Choosing the right central heating system and boiler is vital in order to balance energy efficiency against the ideal capacity needed for the home. That is why it is vitally important that you select a GAS SAFE registered heating engineer that can make the all important calculations that could provide serious long-term savings.
Your selected heating engineer should also guarantee the following when servicing, repairing and installing new central heating systems and boilers:
Old gas boilers are replaced with a new condensing boilers in order to cut CO2 emissions and save on bills
Boilers are set to meet the specific heat requirements of the property
Controls are selected to maximise energy efficiency whilst meeting the specific needs and comfort levels of the property
Radiators are appropriately sized to meet the specific requirements for each room and each is fitted with a thermostatic control to improve in-room comfort
A central heating programmer is fitted that can adjust the time the heating comes on to suit the outside temperature. Room temperature can also be set more accurately and evenly so that a boiler only fires up when it needs to. This increases comfort and reduces heating bills by using less fuel.
Towel warmers are recommended as they contain less water than a radiator, heat up more rapidly and add a modern look to a bathroom.
Unvented twin-coil hot water cylinders are recommended. These can heat up water twice as quickly, they use less energy and provide greater water pressure. These cylinders are also upgradable so that new technology such as solar panels can be added at a later date if required.
These are just a few of the initiatives and suggestions that could easily provide any household with substantial savings. Choose your heating engineer wisely and make sure that, as a GAS SAFE registered heating engineer, they are dedicated to supporting energy efficiency.
