Corrosion deposits in an older central heating system can cause substantial reductions in the effectiveness of radiators, and the whole system. The build-up of scale in heating circuits and on boiler components can cause a reduction in efficiency too. Using an effective chemical inhibitor can decrease the corrosion rate and prevent the build-up of sludge and scale, thus preventing deterioration and helping to maintain efficiency.
The EST Register identifies and lists all certified emissions reduction systems, so buyers and enforcement authorities can choose a system or check that a system is compliant. Independent certification for Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) is the only one of its kind in the UK and certifies the emissions reduction systems that can be retrofitted to NRMM (or construction machinery) to allow them be used in areas which have emissions restrictions.
Lighting accounts for 18 per cent of a typical household’s electricity bill. Energy efficient light bulbs last up to 10 times longer than traditional bulbs and are available for most types of fittings, allowing you to cut your lighting bill and energy use.
In a typical UK household, heating accounts for about 60 per cent of the money spent on fuel bills each year, but having an efficient can help reduce your bills. When replacing your boiler, consider the fuel type available in your home, your hot water usage, how much space you have available and the different options of separate boiler and hot water cylinder or a combi boiler.
Correct heating controls keep your home comfortable without wasting fuel or heat. A full set of controls for gas, LPG or oil-fired heating systems should ideally include a boiler thermostat, a timer or programmer, a room thermostat and thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs).
Look for energy efficient appliances when replacing products like washing machines, fridge freezers or ovens. Those with rated A+ or A++ on its energy labels will help you to save money on your energy bills. The size of the appliance also affects energy use and therefore running cost.
Insulating your home can significantly reduce heat loss while lowering your heating bills. This can be achieved through insulation in your loft and roof, cavity or solid walls and floor.
Most people find warmth very important. Choosing radiators with a high output give out more heat to keep your home warm
A sustainable urban drainage system (SUDS) is an environmental solution to drainage management in and around properties and other developments.
