We're looking to new revolutionary innovations for a greener way to heat our homes.

We've also shared a few handy tips to help...

Handy Energy & Money Saving Tips

Smart Heating

While a smart heating system won’t directly save money like switching energy supplier will, it does allow you to heat your home more efficiently and saves money in the long run. Lowering or raising the temperature in the home depending on living habits and only using energy when it’s needed can offer considerable annual savings. Research suggests thermostats could knock more than £100 a year off annual energy bills.

Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs)

The key benefit of thermostatic radiator valves is their energy saving potential. Make the most of your TRV settings to control individual room temperatures and save money by avoiding overheating commonly caused by manual valves

Flushing A Dirty System

Poor water quality is the most common cause of central heating breakdown, costing the UK over £700m in repair bills. The importance of testing heating system water quality as part of installation, maintenance or servicing should not be underestimated.

Testing & flushing your system could save on your energy bills.

Programme Your Controls

Even if you don't have smart heating installed, you should still make sure to programme/time your heating controls.

You can help save energy by not heating your home at times that aren't necessary.

Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs)

A poorly-balanced heating system will result in you spending more money heating up your home than you need to. In an unbalanced system, when you set the thermostat to 20°C, the upstairs might actually reach 23°C. While downstairs, where most of us spend the majority of our day, will still be too cold. If you turn the thermostat up, until downstairs reaches a comfortable temperature, then upstairs is overheated, resulting in a thermostat that’s set at too high a temperature, leading to higher bills.
