Tips on saving money on your energy bills

Save Money on Heating Bills with Your Combi Boiler

Energy bills are on the rise, but there are ways to cut costs while staying warm. Here are some tips specifically for combi boiler owners:

Adjusting Your Flow Temperature:

  • Look for the dials on your combi boiler's front panel. One dial controls the heating temperature (flow temperature) for your radiators.
  • Reducing this temperature can save energy. The video suggests lowering it to around 40°C (55°F). While it might take a little longer to heat your home, you could save 5-6% on your energy bills.

Optimising Hot Water Temperature:

  • Another dial controls your hot water temperature.
  • If you mainly use hot water for hand washing or washing dishes, there's no need for the maximum setting. Adjust the dial to a comfortable temperature that meets your needs.

Using Hot Water Efficiently:

  • Filling a bath with hot water then adding cold water is wasteful. Run the cold water first, then add hot until you reach a comfortable temperature.

General Tips:

  • Remember, these dials may not be labelled universally ("flow temperature" or "economy"). If you're unsure about your specific boiler, consult the manual or contact the manufacturer.
  • The video focuses on Worcester Bosch boilers, but the principles apply to most combi boilers. If you have a different boiler type, send a message with a picture to the video creator for assistance.

By following these tips and making small adjustments to your hot water and heating settings, you can save money on your energy bills and stay toasty without breaking the bank.
