Latest News - Money Saving Tips This Winter


During the winter you will inevitably be spending more money heating your home than during the summer and with Christmas on the horizon, there is an extra incentive to save as much money as possible. With this in mind, we have come up with a few ways in which you can save money on your heating bills this winter.

Bleeding your radiators
– Bubbles in your central heating system can stop hot water from successfully circulating around your home, preventing radiators from reaching their potential heat and making the entire heating process slower. Bleeding your radiators can prevent this issue from causing any problems and would allow you to maximise your energy efficiency.

Turning down your thermostat – Turning down your thermostat by an average of 1°C could save you £75 per year.

Smart thermostat - Smart thermostats give that extra level of control when heating your home so you can carefully monitor your energy usage, allowing you to see exactly what is using the most electricity and gas in your home as well as how much it is using. They also automatically send your meter readings to your energy provider, so you don't have to! Contact us today on 0800 731 334 or email us to find out the best thermostat for your needs and for a free installation quotation.

Double Glazing – Installing double glazingat your property is a great way of keeping the warmth in your home and the cold out. This then means that your heating wouldn’t need to be on as long, thus requiring less energy to heat your home, with an additional benefit of saving you up to £160 per year.

Efficient shower head – Purchasing a more efficient shower head can save you £75 on your gas bills per year.

New boiler installation – Over the past few years, there have been more heating regulations that have been introduced, where new boiler installations have to meet enhanced efficiency ratings. This includes the ERP regulation that was introduced in 2015 and the Boiler Plus scheme that was introduced in 2017.  You can find how to book a new boiler installation here.

With all these useful tips on how to use less energy, saving the pennies just in time for the festive period might have just become a bit easier.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from everyone at Swale Heating.
