Top energy saving tips for your boiler:

Save money and reduce your carbon footprint

Here at Cheshire Boilers we know your boiler is essential for providing heat and hot water to homes and businesses, but they can also consume a significant amount of energy, leading to high energy bills and increased carbon emissions. There are many ways you can reduce your carbon footprint:

  • You can install a programmable room thermostat: Here at Cheshire Boilers we recommend the ESI Wireless room thermostat as it is easy to use but there are many more makes and models on the market. This allows you to change the temperature of your home or business. You can also programme any thermostat for a schedule that suits you best. For example, you can set the temperature to be lower during the night or when nobody is home and then higher when present. This can save you up to 10% on your heating bill.


  • Getting your annual boiler service: Here at Cheshire Boilers we will always recommend that your boiler is serviced at least once a year. This is important if you have a warranty on your boiler because if you don’t service the boiler your warranty will be void. A well-maintained boiler is more efficient and consumes less energy than a boiler that is left for years. This must be taken place by a qualified Gas safe or OFTEC engineer.
  • Bleeding your radiators throughout your home: If your radiators have trapped air, they won’t be as efficient. Bleeding the radiators will help the system balance out and will improve the efficiency and help you save on your heating bill.


  • Insulate your house: Insulation is a massive factor of efficiency in your home, this will reduce heat loss which means your boiler won’t have to be used as much to make your home a maintainable/comfortable temperature. You can insulate your walls floor and ceiling this saves up to 20% on your bill.


  • Upgrade to a more efficient boiler: If your boiler is old, it may be worth upgrading the existing boiler or system. There are a lot of boilers out there that are a lot more efficient than a boiler 10 years ago. This helps massively because it is a lot more efficient and will reduce your energy consumption by up to 30% this will reduce your carbon footprint.
