Program Your Thermostat.
Invest in a programmable thermostat if you don’t already have one. These devices allow you to set specific temperature schedules, optimising your heating system’s efficiency. You can lower the temperature when no one is at home or when the business is closed, then have it warm up before people return. This can lead to significant energy savings over time.

Bleed Radiators (for Hot Water Systems).
If your heating system uses radiators, it’s essential to bleed them at the beginning of the heating season. Air can become trapped in the system, preventing the hot water from circulating properly. Bleeding the radiators releases this trapped air and allows the system to operate efficiently, ensuring even heating throughout your space.

Consider Energy-Efficient Upgrades.
If your heating system is outdated, it might be time to consider energy-efficient upgrades. Modern heating systems are designed to be more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, offering substantial long-term savings. Additionally, you may be eligible for government incentives or rebates when you install energy-efficient equipment.
Systems such as air source heat pumps which utilise renewable energy and can achieve performance of 400% efficiency, have Government grants available to them, taking £7,500 off of the installation costs! Talk to our dedicated heat pump team now!
Stock Up on Fuel (for Oil and Gas Systems).
If your heating system relies on oil or gas, make sure you have an adequate supply for the winter season. It’s wise to order fuel early to avoid potential shortages or price spikes as the temperatures drop. Keeping a sufficient supply ensures your heating system can operate without interruptions.
