Save money on your central heating

By Anson Bailey Subscribe to RSS | April 26th 2012 | Views:

Considering the weather conditions we have, it is almost a basic necessity to have central heating in place. However, this too can suck up on power and can give you a power bill that is heart-attack inducing at the end of the month. If you are one of the families that has central heating in Preston, then here are some tips to help you lower your expenses for heating.

Now heating is used largely in winters, but fact is that the system is just like any other piece of machinery and needs to be run on a regular basis. Even during the summer months it would be a good idea to run the heating for a while. This will allow the boiler to work property and prevent the circulating pump from jamming up.

Before you begin to use the heating system on a regular basis it would be a good idea to get it serviced. This would essential mean once or twice a year. You could also take out some insurance or service plans which discount servicing prices and the replacing of certain parts. Make it a point to regularly bleed your radiators and make sure that you don’t have any air pockets in them. This can significantly bring down the efficacy of your heating and cost you more in the long run.

Keep your radiators well ventilated and don’t block them with any cupboards or sofas. This will bring down their efficiency since you end up cranking up the thermostat to get the most out of it. This forces the system to work much harder than it should. It would also be a good idea to have some safety measures in place. A carbon-monoxide alarm would be a good one to have. This will set off if there is a leakage in your system. If you find the smell of gas in the air, then ventilate the place, get out and call emergency services. Most boilers have got a pilot light. Keep an eye on it. If it is blue in color, then the boiler is working as it should, if it flickers or is yellow-orange shade you may need an expert to look at it.

Having an insurance plan in place for your heating system is a good idea. You will especially need this should your system require replacement in peak seasons. Good maintenance will ensure however that things don’t come to that level.
