Tips to improve your home's energy efficiency

With the present energy crisis; fuel shortages; and the cost of gas and electricity growing with each passing year, there's no question that household costs are beginning to rise throughout the country. Elements Heating Installations have outlined how you can keep on top of your home's energy efficiency in this blog post. 

Energy efficiency is an issue for the majority of people in the UK, but there are a number of methods that homeowners may enhance their boiler's efficiency and lower their monthly heating costs. 

Powerflush your central heating system

While it's basic sense to get your boiler serviced once a year, it's not the only method to keep it in good working order. You may also have a powerflush performed on your system by a Gas Safe qualified heating engineer. A powerflush is recommended every five to ten years, and this service will ensure that your boiler runs at peak efficiency.

Invest in pipe lagging to prepare for winter

Another option to improve the effectiveness of your heating system is to use pipe-lagging, which relieves the strain on your boiler during the winter and allows you to save money over time. Simple and easy-to-install foam tubes may be used to lag your central heating pipes, reducing heat loss and ensuring that your water stays hotter for longer.


Upgrade your boiler to a more energy-efficient model

It's possible that your boiler is inefficient since it's older or classified as a non-condensing unit, which is frequently inefficient compared to modern ones. In this scenario, upgrading to a contemporary, A-rated boiler is the greatest (and frequently most cost-effective) alternative, since it provides at least 90% efficiency and can lower your energy expenses over time! Of course, whether or not you pursue this option depends on your budget and financial situation, but if you have the money, it's definitely worth exploring. It's a prudent investment that will pay you in the long run!
