Tips for your heating system

  • Heat only the rooms you use. Turn off the heating in the bedroom. You will save up to €170 per year. 
  • Set your central heating boiler to 60°C instead of 80°C for less gas consumption (zetmop60.co.uk).
  • Curtains in front of radiators? Shorten them so the heat is not lost.
  • Provide good ventilation. This is not only important for your health but it also helps to heat the room better. Airing briefly in the morning will make your room warm up faster.
