Gas Central Heating Boilers

Combination boilers tend to be the cheapest to install as they don’t require hot water cylinders or tanks in the loft.

Gas central heating is the most common type of heating system in use in the UK today. Gas is generally one of the cheaper fuels and emits less carbon dioxide than most other fuels; with the exception of wood.

Gas boilers have improved greatly in efficiency in recent years, and since 2005 most boilers fitted in the UK have been energy efficient condensing boilers.

Gas can be used to provide heat for the central heating system and the domestic hot water system and can be used in conjunction with renewable energy systems such as solar power, underfloor heating, and ground source heat pumps.

Central Heating Thermostats

The temperature of the water circulating through the radiators in your home is controlled by the thermostat in your boiler.Lady adjusting the

Central heating is the most common type of heating system in the UK because it is one of the most energy efficient ways to heat a home.

The current trend of responsible energy consumption to reduce carbon emissions is aligned with the desire of many people to lower their energy bills in the face of rising fuel prices. Continue reading “Central Heating Thermostats”…

Central Heating Timers

Control the times your central heating is on or off with a timer.

According to the National Energy Foundation, around two thirds of households in the UK do not have the level of control over their heating systems that would meet current regulations if they were installed today.

This means that something like 60% of us are wasting energy unnecessarily and paying more than we should on our energy bills.

Central Heating Programmers

The times that both heating and hot water are on can be controlled by a central heating programmer.

Over half of the average UK household’s energy consumption is for heating and hot water. With the cost of energy rising every year, it is important for all of us to take whatever measures possible to reduce our energy usage to save money.

Central heating in general is one of the most energy efficient and cost-effective types of heating system, and the use of a programmer can make it all the more efficient by controlling the times that both heating and hot water are on.

Central Heating Radiators

The right size radiator should be chosen for each room to ensure it can be adequately heated.

One of the best ways to save energy, improve the efficiency of your home, and reduce your carbon emissions is to install a central heating system. To have a full system fitted into your property is likely to cost a few thousand pounds, and involves a fair amount of upheaval during the installation process.

Depending on which type of fuel, and which type of system you use, you may need a storage tank to be fitted somewhere on the property; you might have to have a water tank put in the loft, and a new indirect hot water cylinder fitted. A boiler will need to be fitted, and the pipe work will need to be laid around the house to each of the radiators.

Central Heating Boilers

There are various fuels and boilers suitable for powering central heating.

Soaring energy prices in the UK, and the cost of heating in particular, are raising awareness amongst home-owners of the need to make their homes more efficient to reduce energy consumption.

Central heating and hot water heating account for well over half the money a typical household spends on energy, and therefore it is essential to have an efficient heating system.
