Your boiler plays a crucial role in keeping your home warm and comfortable. However, it is also one of the largest contributors to most households’ energy bills. This leaves many people wondering: how can they reduce their boiler’s energy consumption?

If you’re one of those people, you’re in the right place. Read on for your guide on the top 5 ways to lower your builder’s energy consumption and save money on your energy bills.

1. Upgrade To A High-Efficiency Boiler

Older models tend to be less energy-efficient compared to more modern models. If you have an older system or one that is on its last legs, then consider investing in a high-efficiency boiler.

They recover heat from the exhaust gases they produce, reducing wastage and increasing the amount of heat produced per energy used. This ultimately saves you money on fuel costs.

2. Install A Smart Thermostat

A smart thermostat allows you to set specific temperature levels for different times of day and to your exact schedule. This ensures that your boiler and heating system only operate when you need it to.

By optimising your heating system you can avoid overheating your home, especially when nobody’s there, and avoid wasting energy.

3. Insulation And Draught Proofing

Proper insulation is vital in preventing heat loss. Make sure that your walls, roof, and floors are properly insulated to reduce heat transfer. This keeps the warm inside and reduces your heating system’s need to burn through as much energy.

Draught-proofing your windows, doors, and other points of entry prevents cold air from moving inside your home.

These measures help your boiler to work less and consume less energy.

4. Regular Boiler Servicing

Regular maintenance is essential for the best boiler performance. Schedule annual servicing with qualified heating engineers to ensure that your boiler operates efficiently and reliably. During the service, the engineer will clean the components, check for any issues, and fine-tune its settings.

Proper maintenance improves efficiency and reduces the risk of breakdowns, saving you money on repairs and extending the lifespan of your system.

5. Bleed Your Radiators

Over time, heat air can get trapped inside your radiators. This prevents them from heating up properly, as air is much worse at conducting heat.

Bleeding your radiators releases the air trapped inside them, allowing them to distribute heat efficiently once more.
