If your home is heated by a boiler, you have a reliable source of heat. But, an inefficient boiler can end up costing more than necessary while not keeping your home as comfortable as you’d like. Fortunately, there are several ways to improve its efficiency. In this article, we’ll help you understand the most effective boiler efficiency upgrades you can make that’ll save you money and help the environment!
How to Upgrade Boiler Efficiency
There are several strategies when it comes to improving the efficiency of your boiler.
Regular Maintenance & Cleaning
Another way to enhance the efficiency of your boiler is to ensure your home is properly insulated. Your home’s insulation can greatly impact how efficiently your boiler operates. A poorly insulated home loses a lot of heat, forcing your boiler to run longer and work harder to maintain the temperature. Don’t forget to insulate the pipes while you’re at it!
Programmable Thermostat Installation
You can also upgrade efficiency by installing a programmable thermostat. You might even opt for a smart thermostat for more features and opportunities to optimize efficiency. Either way, when you have a thermostat you can program, you can set the temperature based on the times of day and reduce the amount of energy you use.
Checking Boiler Pressure
It’s crucial to check your boiler’s pressure regularly to maintain efficiency. As a responsible boiler owner, you need to monitor its pressure gauge. Keeping your boiler pressure within the recommended range will help you identify potential problems and ensure the system is running properly and not wasting energy.
If you have an old boiler, consider upgrading to a high-efficiency one. They’re designed to use less energy to heat your home and hot water. With a new, high-efficiency boiler, you’ll experience improved home comfort, as well as lower energy consumption and costs.
