Yes, There Are Ways To Make Your Energy Efficient Boiler Even More Effective
You may have thought that having an energy efficient boiler installed was enough. That you could just leave it there to do its job. Running perfectly happy. And nothing you could do would improve anything.
But you were wrong. And that's not your fault. But now you're here you're about to discover a few little tricks to make your energy efficient boiler even more effective.
Annual Service Checks
Yeah, we hear you. There are always much more exciting ways to spend your hard earned cash. But an annual service is essential to ensure your boiler is running at its most effective.
During the service, your engineer will remove all sorts of little nasties. Because corrosion and dirt get built up in there. Even if you have a magnetic filter installed.
So bite the bullet, and get your boiler serviced to ensure it works at its full capability and isn’t having to struggle day after day.
As an added bonus, regular services will keep your boiler lasting longer too. So not only will it work more efficiently, it’ll also live longer too. A regular service truly is money well spent.
When you’re getting your boiler serviced, make sure to get the system powerflushed at the same time. This will help remove the build up of all the nasties in the system mentioned above. Don’t think can do this on your own though. This is a job for a professional. You don’t want clogged up dirty water leaking all over your house, do you?
Keep The Pressure On
One of the most effective ways of keeping your boiler working efficiently is by ensuring it has the right amount of water pressure.
Similar to Golidlocks and her porridge, a boiler needs the perfect amount of pressure. If the water pressure is too high or too low it impacts your boiler’s ability to do its job.
Our last tip is to make sure that the settings are correct for your needs.
Don’t just rely on the settings that were implemented when the boiler was installed. Tweak them to your needs.
So, if your boiler has settings for hot water and for heating (a combi boiler) then these dials need to be set at different temperatures. You don't need the water you’re showering in to be as hot as the water which is heating your home. Trust me.
There’s no magic number for temperature settings, as everyone is different. But as a general rule of thumb, the limit for the radiators should be around 70°C-80°C. Whereas the water should be limited to 50°C-60°C.
So, there you have it. Loads of ways to get the most out of your energy efficient boiler. And they’re all pretty simple solutions too.
