How To Get The Most Out Of Your Energy Efficient Boiler

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.

Clean It

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.

Efficient Settings

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.

We are proud of our reviews

  • Nothing but excellence! We have a pleasure to work with The Better Home Company on multiple refurbishments projects and their quality of work as well as professional approach at every step of the way has been consistently fantastic.

  • Mario recently installed new cabinets since my old ones were damage due to a water leak. He was very punctual, professional and thorough. Rafael was with him the first time and he did an excellent job and I did not catch the name of his colleague on the second visit, but he was extremely nice also. I was very pleased with the service and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

    Adam Michael

  • I can fully understand why Which? recommends your company. I am delighted with the result of the works and I was extremely impressed by Yarek. He had remembered what we had discussed at the first visit and understood what I needed and why. He is excellent!!... first class work, very knowledgeable, hardworking and efficient. My flat feels greatly improved after the works. I was surprised when John arrived to join Yarek. He was also well focussed. Also I was pleased to receive helpful phone calls to tell me when Yarek would arrive because he was delayed. This meant that I wasn't worried.


  • Great experience from quote to completion of the work. All done quickly, without any trouble and to a high standard. This will be my “go to” company for future jobs around the home.


  • I was positively impressed by the Better Home Company engineers. Not only they knew what they were doing and they did it well (install a new consumer unit and rectify all sort of issues with the electrical system), when confronted with a tenant coming back home exhausted from a business trip, a landlord checking on the work, a decorator and a surveyor all in the house at the same time, Laurence Lane showed tact, great manners, diplomacy and good old common sense. Well done!


  • We’ve had some great service from this team. They are always prompt/on time, don’t try to rush out with a half done job, provide constant communication, and always dig out helpful solutions. We’ve just been caught in the London flash floods and the job the team has done, in just a matter of hours, has been superb.


  • Excellent service - we had been previously advised (by British Gas) that we needed an expensive procedure to repair the central heating system. TBHC provided an estimate (best out of 3 sought) and arrived to start work but noticed a problem, which 4 previous engineers had failed to spot or ignored. Engineers replaced a defective part and had the system running again in half the time and without the additional cost. Two friendly and knowledgeable engineers who I would wholeheartedly recommend.

    Richard Doble

  • Outstanding service by Michael the electrician and Mark the gas technician. Michael was very quick and efficient. He was exceedingly polite and very, very friendly. Such a cheery disposition! Mark took the time to explain what he was doing, which was very helpful. He too was very friendly and so lovely to talk to! Both were excellent, and I'd happily rely on them for any technical help again, and strongly recommend them to anyone who needs effective, skilled, quick, and friendly technical help.


  • One efficient cheerful and punctual guy you have in your company. He came earlier before me and i was surprised because they normally come a bit late. He was also good at explaining things on why it has to be done this and that way. He also courteously asked if i can wait for awhile for him to get a missing part. Such a professional guy. I give him 5 stars. And not to mention he never left the place he worked on dirty. He left it well tidied up. Thumbs up for Laurence
