A well-maintained boiler also offers better performance than an appliance left behind. Descale the boiler regularly, as lime deposits have an immediate effect on its performance and your energy bill. With the TXU Energy plans can find the best deals.
You can’t isolate enough.
Do not be stingy in terms of insulation. It is important to insulate the spaces, the roof, the walls, the pipes and the boiler without neglecting one of these steps.
Insulation is inseparable from ventilation. When you resolutely opt for complete insulation of your home, you should not lose sight of good ventilation. If the living spaces are insufficiently ventilated, you get an unhealthy ambient environment, and humidity problems can arise. This is not what you are looking for, is it? Ventilation is also included in the ILL requirements imposed for dwellings.
Install independent thermostatic valves in each room.
You can then adjust the temperature separately in each room. A temperature of 20 ° C is considered to be the ideal room temperature for most living spaces. In the bedroom, a temperature of 18 ° C is recommended for a good sleep. In the bathroom, the temperature will, of course, be higher. Nobody likes to get out of their bath and find themselves in the cold.
Try to maintain a constant temperature in most rooms. It is not useful to switch off the heating completely during your absence, as you will have to catch up with too many degrees when you return to obtain a pleasant room temperature.
If you are going on a trip or if you are going to be away for a few days it is better to reduce the heating considerably and if your thermostat allows it, gradually raise the temperature sometime before your return. Your heating should not then run at full speed to return to good room temperature.
Given that half of the energy costs included on the bill are due to heating, it is not an understatement to think that there are a lot of savings to be made in this area. The smart move is to lower your thermostat by one degree or more. You will quickly notice the difference in your wallet. Rest assured, this is not about transforming your home into a fridge in which the heating will barely work. Comfort is above all.
Remember not to leave windows and doors open unnecessarily. If you are leaving a room in which you want to keep the heat, close the door behind you. Isn’t that simple advice to save energy?
It is of course very important to ventilate well because good ventilation ensures a pleasant environment. However, be careful not to let the heat escape. Open the windows widely for a quarter of an hour rather than leaving them ajar all day. Did you know that a reflective film for radiators can be useful for you? The film insulates the heat, reducing heat loss through the walls. The installation of a reflective film is accomplished in a jiffy.
Contrary to what one might think, the air inside the house is of good quality. Our ventilation system completely renews the air in the house three times a day. It is much more efficient than a house with slits and gaps, in terms of energy consumption.
