That’s why Bind, the leading heating and plumbing engineers in Wiltshire and Somerset bring you 9 easy and effective ways to save on your heating bills. These tips could help you save up to 30% on your heating costs. Plus, they’re good for the environment too!

Here are the 9 ways to save on your heating bills with Bind:

Install TRVs (thermostatic radiator valves)

TRVs are devices that allow you to control the temperature of each radiator in your home. They can help you avoid overheating or underheating rooms, and they can also reduce the amount of energy wasted by radiators that are not in use. By optimising the heat distribution in your home, TRVs help reduce the overall energy consumption of your heating system which translates to lower heating bills.

Layer up

One of the simplest and cheapest ways to save on your heating bills is to wear more layers of clothing. By adding an extra sweater or a pair of socks, you can keep yourself warm without turning up the thermostat. You can also use heated blankets, rugs, and thicker curtains to add more insulation to your home and prevent heat loss.

Upgrade your thermostat

A smart thermostat is a device that can learn your habits and preferences, and adjust the temperature of your home accordingly. It can also be controlled remotely via your smartphone or computer, so you can turn down the heat when you are away or turn it up before you arrive. A smart thermostat can help you save up to 15% on your heating bills, and you can find out more about the best models from our blog.

Let the sun in

The sun is a natural and free source of heat, so why not take advantage of it? By opening your curtains and blinds during the day, you can let the sunlight in and warm up your home. Just make sure to close them at night, as they can also act as a barrier against the cold air outside.

Shut doors on unused rooms.

If you have rooms that you don’t use often, such as guest rooms or storage rooms, you can save energy by closing their doors and turning off their radiators. This way, you can focus on heating the rooms that you actually use, and avoid wasting heat on empty spaces.

Seal air leaks

Air leaks are gaps or cracks in your walls, windows, doors, or floors that allow cold air to enter and warm air to escape your home. They can make your home feel drafty and uncomfortable, and they can also increase your heating bills by up to 25%. You can seal air leaks by using caulk, weatherstripping, or foam tape, which are cheap and easy to apply.

Service or upgrade your boiler

Your boiler is the heart of your heating system, and it needs regular maintenance to function properly and efficiently. You should have your boiler serviced at least once a year by a qualified, local boiler engineer from Bind, who can check its performance and safety, and fix any issues that may arise. You should also consider upgrading your boiler if it is more than 10 years old, as newer models from Bind are more energy-efficient and reliable.

Move your sofa away from any radiators

If you have a sofa or any other furniture that is blocking a radiator, you are preventing the heat from spreading around the room. This means that you are not getting the full benefit of your heating system, and you may end up turning up the thermostat unnecessarily. By moving your sofa away from any radiators, you can improve the airflow and circulation of heat in your home.

Take a shower instead of a bath

A shower uses less water and energy than a bath, so by switching from baths to showers, you can save both money and water. You can also save more by installing a low-flow showerhead from Bind, which reduces the amount of water used per minute without compromising the water pressure. You can find out more about low-flow showerheads and how to install them [here].
