How to get the most out of your central heating

  • Turn thermostatic radiator valves down in rooms which are not in use. For rooms which are used regularly or for long periods of time set between 3-5
  • Use an eco setting if your boiler has one, or turn down the boiler thermostat to your required temperature to reduce energy bills
  • Set your heating timer to come on half an hour before you get up, or arriving home, to prevent turning the thermostat on full
  • The UK Government guideline temperatures suggest 21°C for your main living area and 19°C for anywhere else
  • Turning your thermostat down by just 1°C can save the average household around £60 a year in fuel bills
  • If your room thermostat is remote make sure it is located away from a source of heat otherwise it will turn off your heating before the room is up to the desired temperature
  • Try to keep radiators free from clutter and large objects
  • If you are away from home during the winter period, set the heating thermostat to 5°C to help prevent frozen or burst pipes.
