Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency means utilizing the minimum amount of Energy created by a building to maintain a comfortable environment.

Heating and cooling systems within a building consumes the most amount of energy.

By making some changes whether these are large or small you can significantly reduce the amount of energy that is used by these systems.

People are becoming increasingly aware of climate change and they are recognising that changes need to be made in order to become more Energy Efficient.

Energy Efficiency means utilising the minimum amount of Energy created by a building to maintain a comfortable environment.

Heating and cooling systems within a building consumes the most amount of energy. Within both commercial and domestic buildings, people are looking for ways that energy use, water use and their carbon footprint can be reduced within the property.

By making some change whether they be large or small you can significantly reduce the amount of energy that is used by the different systems you have in place.

Servicing your gas Appliances

Having your gas appliances serviced annually you can improve the efficiency by up to 60%.

There are 5 key points to bear in mind if you want a safe and economic gas heating system.

These are:

  • Some insurance companies will not cover your company if your gas appliance is the cause of a fire and it has not been serviced;
  • Your gas appliances should be checked at least every 12 months by a registered gas engineer;
  • Never use a gas appliance if you think that it is not working properly. Examples of this is if the flame looks yellow or orange, if there is soot or stains around the appliance and if the pilot light frequently blows out.
  • Never block or obstruct any fixed ventilation grills or air bricks.
  • Annual boiler servicing can assist boiler efficiency, thus saving energy bills.

Change your old boiler to an Energy Efficient Boiler

Boilers account for approx 60% of carbon dioxide emissions in gas heated properties.

The lifespan of a high efficient condensing boiler is approximately 15 years.

By replacing your old boiler with a new high efficient condensing boiler with all the correct controls will make a massive difference to your energy bills overtime.

So what makes a high efficient condensing boiler so different?

High efficient condensing boiler recovers as much as possible of the waste heat which is normally wasted through the flue of a normal conventional boiler.

High efficiency condensing boilers can now run Up to 110% efficient as opposed to the 70% that a conventional boiler would run at.
