Energy Saving Advice

In order to achieve the correct temperature in any room in your property it is important that the radiator is sized correctly.  In this way a radiator will work as efficiently as possible so that the output of heat is correct for the room size.  Click on the radiator if you want to work out the size of radiator you will need.

Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs) are a great way of controlling the temperature in each room where a radiator is fitted. TRV’s allow each room to be set to a desired temperature.  When the individual room reaches the set temperature the TRV will shut off that radiator, thus preventing unnecessary continuous heating of any one room.  When  the room cools the TRV will open allowing more heat to pass through the radiator.

Room Thermostats are now a minimum requirement when any new boiler is installed.  The boiler will turn off when, the room where the room thermostat is located, has reached the set required temperature.  This means that you are only heating your house as much as you need to.  To make further energy savings, why not go one step further and install a programmable room thermostat, so that you can schedule your boiler on/off times for a typical 7-day week.  Click on the image for further information.
