SET YOUR HEATING to come on 30 minutes before getting up or arriving home and to go off 30 minutes before going to bed or leaving for work. You will avoid heating an empty house which will just cost you money.
IF YOU CAN TURN YOUR heating down by 1°C, this can cut your energy use by 10%.
KEEP your radiators clear. Don’t put anything in front of them or on them.
CONSIDER putting radiator panels behind radiators fixed to external walls.
USE THERMAL or heavy curtains during the winter. Keep them drawn after dark.
TRY TO BLOCK all draughts around the house to help stop the heat from escaping.
IS YOUR WATER too hot? Your boiler and cylinder thermostat should be set at 60°C.
