Upgrading the heating in your home could directly result to a saving to your energy bills.

More than 50% of heating bills are made up by hot water costs.

By choosing a high efficiency boiler, you could see them reduce by 30%.


boiler

The SEDBUCK Band rating will help you work out which boilers are most efficient. This rating is similar to those you find on freezers and other white goods and ranges from SEDBUCK Band A to G. Band A being the most proficient and G the least.

On the 1st of April 2005 the government stated that virtually every new boiler installed in the UK after this date should be a condensing or high efficiency boiler and falling in either SEDBUK Band A or B. This was introduced under changes to the building regulations. As a general rule if you choose a new boiler that carries the Energy Saving Trust ‘Energy Efficiency Recommended’ sticker it will be highly efficient and of a good quality. Moorheat are able to talk you though a range of boilers available in the current market and can advise which are best for both energy saving and the environment.


central heat

Have your boiler serviced annually by a Corgi Registered Engineer. This can prevent breakdowns occurring which in turn reduces the risk of unbudgeted repairs and keeps your heating system running at its most efficient.

Replace worn out insulation in your roof with new insulation of 200mm thickness or more.

This could help to reduce up to 30% of heat loss through the roof of your property.


windows

Remove single glazed windows and replace with PVCu or wooden framed double glazed windows.
Hang full length or lined curtains in your windows. However, you must ensure that these do not drape over radiators.
Use draught excluders around doors and letterboxes. Do not however block or seal any air vents which ensure that the central heating boiler operates safely.


thermostat

Room thermostats are extremely sensitive. By reducing the setting by just 1 degree you could reduce fuel consumption by up to 10%.
