1. Turn Down Your Home Heating Oil
Not many people realise that if you reduce the temperature on your heating system by as little as 1 degree that you can save up to 10% of your annual heating oil bills! Reducing the temperature by as little as 1 degree won’t mean wearing an extra wooly jumper to bed and to be honest you won’t even notice the temperature difference. However, you will notice up to a 10% decrease in your heating bills over the course of the year.
2. Insulate Your Attic & Hot Water Tank
Insulating your property is one of the best ways to keep your home energy efficient. An easy and affordable way to cut down your energy bills and make your heating oil go further is to draught-proof and insulate your home. We also recommend insulating your water tanks and pipes throughout the house. We all know heat rises so one of the first places you should insulate is your attic. You will be amazed at the difference it makes. Check Out SEAI for available grants to homeowners.
3. Have Your Boiler Serviced Annually
Upgrading your boiler to a modern energy-efficient boiler like the Grant Vortex Condensing Oil Boilers Ireland. Keeping your boiler well maintained and serviced is very important to keep your heating costs down.
4. Check Your Heating System for Leaks
Water or oil leaks prevent your system from working efficiently. Check for signs of leakage from your tank, pipes, valves, and boiler. We have come across many articles on the subject such as the one here How to Find a Leak in Your Central Heating System
