Your boiler can account for approximately 55% of your annual energy bill. This is because most boilers operate at a low efficiency, making your heating bills significantly higher than they need to be. Installing central heating controls and a high efficient boiler could cut your fuel bills by a quarter. A typical boiler replacement and heating controls upgrade takes less than 1 day and can save you as much as €150 per annum.
Heating controls also have an important part to play when it comes to managing fuel consumption. Newer heating controls have a number of functions including a pre-set schedule option which will help you easily and efficiently manage your fuel consumption. It is recommended that a thermostatic valve is fitted on each radiator in the property in order to ensure each radiator maintains a constant temperature.
