Protecting your heat http://www.npower.com/Home/energy-eff... Heating your home during the colder months uses a large amount of the energy you use throughout the year. Ensuring your heating system is running efficiently and that you are not wasting any energy can therefore help you to make big savings on your fuel bills. Easy ways to save energy • Try to wash a full load in your washing machine - for smaller wash loads use a half load programme if available on your machine. • Don't overheat your hot water either -- 60°C is the optimum setting for your cylinder thermostat. • It may sound obvious, but if you are too warm, turn the heating down to reduce the temperature rather than opening windows. • Have radiators fitted with thermostatic controls to regulate heat in each room. • Have your boiler regularly serviced -- this will increase its energy efficiency. Make Your Boiler More Energy Efficient If your boiler is more than ten years old, it's probably far less efficient than modern models. Replacing an old boiler with a new high-efficiency condensing boiler can save you around a third on your heating bills straight away.* And if everyone in the UK with gas central heating switched to a high-efficiency condensing boiler, we would save enough energy to heat 3.7 million homes for a year. Replacing an old gas boiler with A-rated high efficiency condensing boiler and improving your heating controls could save you as much as £300 a year on your energy bills.* If you don't fancy replacing your boiler just yet, having your current one regularly and professionally serviced will considerably improve its efficiency. Our Home Services team can service and repair boilers -- and provide emergency call out cover. Make Your Central Heating More Energy Efficient Heating controls give you more scope to ensure your home is heated as you want it -- ensuring the rooms you use are warm and those you don't aren't being heated unnecessarily.
