Have you ever noticed that your home is colder than usual? There are a number of reasons why your home might not be retaining as much heat as it should.

The Top 4 ways to keep your home warm this winter!

 Radiator Design 

Although you may believe that the sort of radiator you use would have little impact on your home's ability to heat properly, your radiator can have a significant impact. Nowadays, there are a variety of radiators to choose from, including wall-mounted radiators, classic radiators, and even designer radiators. When deciding the style of the radiator to buy, think about the amount of room you have, your budget, and where you want the radiator to go. Column radiators, for example, can be used in a variety of buildings and styles while also reducing space and providing adequate warmth. Contact our heating engineers for any advice on what type of radiator would be best for your family & property.

 Draughts

When evaluating how to heat your home most efficiently, look for locations that are prone to draughts. Draughts can reduce the temperature in your home by bringing cold air in and lowering the ambient temperature. Not only that, but draughts can cause heat loss by allowing it to escape via the holes that draughts create. You can keep your house draught-free and save money on your heating bills by minimising the quantity of draughts that your house is prone to by utilising draught stops and door excludes. 

 Boiler Servicing  

When thinking about how to save money on heating, you should also think about having your boiler serviced. If it isn't working properly, it can become inefficient, which can significantly increase your heating expenditure. As a result, there are numerous reasons to have your boiler serviced. Your boiler should be serviced once a year to save energy and money by ensuring that it is operating as effectively as possible. Furthermore, this will improve its security and ensure that you and your family is safe for the year to come.

 Insulation

You will lose less heat through the ceiling and flooring of your rooms if you improve your insulation, and you will ensure that the heat you pump into them is retained. Not only will this keep your house warmer, but it will also save you money. You should also consider installing double glazing in your windows to prevent heat from escaping and to ensure that your home maintains heat from one of its weakest places. 

There are a few things to think about when it comes to heating your home. Not only should you evaluate the type of heating you use, but you should also think about choices like insulation and draught stoppers to ensure that you get the most heat possible.
