5 Ways to Save Energy and Still Get The Most From Your Central Heating

When it comes to making sure that your boiler is working efficiently, there are several different ways in which you can make sure you that your central heating system is well maintained and working at its optimal level. The lifespan of your average boiler is 12 years, but with London and Essex Gas Ltd, we can help you to maximise the longevity of your boiler and the rest of your central heating system.

Get Your Boiler Serviced

By having a gas safe engineer visit your property once a year and making sure that your boiler is running properly, you can greatly improve your central heating system’s efficiency. A gas safe engineer can perform the required tests and checks to make sure that your boiler meets all government regulations and is safe to use.

By having your boiler serviced annually, you will reduce the cost of your bills as well as greatly reducing the risk of having a major, expensive boiler breakdown in the future!

Consider Installing Corrosion Inhibitors

While your central heating is working, dirt will collect in the piping which can build up and eventually lead to your pipes being clogged. This dramatically reduces the effectiveness of your central heating system. 

By having a corrosion inhibitor installed, you can protect your pipes from a scale build-up, helping to keep your boiler at its optimal performance for longer

Regulary Turn On Your Boiler

In order to make sure that your boiler is working properly, you will need to turn on your boiler at regular intervals all year round! This means that even in the summer months you should turn it on for 10 minutes or so in order to keep the boiler and all its working parts in good order. 

Install Heating Controls

If you have room thermostats and thermostatic radiator controls, then you can have a greater amount of control over the temperature in each individual room. This can greatly increase your central heating system’s efficiency while also reducing your energy output and your bills!


By insulating your walls and draught-proofing your windows and doors you can reduce the amount of heat that escapes each room. This will help you to maintain a regular temperature in your home and it will also help you to save money on your energy bills!

The maintenance of your boiler is vital to making sure that it is running safely and at its optimal level. Call London and Essex Gas Ltd on 07872986988 to find out more ways that you can get the best out of your boiler!
