Keep Calm and Control your Heating Bills

With Winter firmly on the horizon, the family spending more time indoors, this can mean higher energy costs.  Keep Calm and Control your Heating Bills by taking note of a few of these handy tips:

Whatever the age of your boiler, the right controls will keep your home at a comfortable temperature without out wasting fuel.  This will not only reduce your carbon footprint but can save you money.  For example:

  • The installation and correct usage of a room thermostat and thermostatic radiator valves could save you between £70 & £150 per year..
  • Fitting a hot water tank insulation jacket up to £30 a year; and
  • Turning down you room thermostat by just one degree could make you £75.00 better off each and every year.

Bluewater Plumbers can easily upgrade or install heating controls without replacing your boiler, and it’s a particularly good idea to think about this if your controls are more than 12 years old.  Room thermostats, for example, have become much more sophisticated over recent years.
