Harrow boiler service engineers available for appointments With the cost of gas rising all the time and with winters getting colder, keeping your boiler operating at peak efficiency is more important than ever. Peter Brown offers an annual boiler servicing appointment for homeowners and landlords keen to ensure that their domestic boilers are operating exactly as they should be. For more information about our Harrow boiler service team, please call 020 8863 1155. Your boiler keeps your home warm and your water hot. If you’ve ever lived somewhere where the boiler has broken, you’ll understand just how disruptive it is to a home and a family. If your boiler is working too hard, you’ll see the difference with significantly increased gas bills. Your radiators won’t be as warm as they should be and your water will never hit that temperature sweet spot you want for having a bath or doing the dishes. There’s also a big health and safety issue too with the potential for real dangers like poisonous carbon monoxide leaks that could occur. As the gas is colourless and scentless, it’s hard to tell if this is even an issue, and hence why you should get your boiler serviced at least once a year for an annual service. Landlords by law must also have a gas safety check carried out every 12 months. Discover more info at https://www.peterbrown.net/boiler-service-harrow.html.
DIY draught excluders are one lesson people can learn from previous generations. “Old-fashioned draught excluders work well,” says Potter. “In the past it wasn’t unusual to have a ‘sausage dog’,” says Potter. For the uninitiated, “sausage dog” draught excluders are vaguely reminiscent of the shape of a dachshund and typically rest at the bottom of doors, stopping heat escaping through the gap between door and floor. Anybody who’s ever been smoking inside a room that they shouldn’t will probably be aware that almost any material or piece of clothing can be used to wedge the space. And simple draught excluders can be made from cutting an old pair of tights and stuffing them with socks, says Luthra. But the more ambitious can go further. “If you really want to go all out you can decorate them,” she says. The stuffing can be almost anything from rice and lentils to gravel, suggests the website Singerdiscount, which also provides a relatively simple guide.
Top-up your loft insulation: The majority of homes have some loft insulation but many don’t have enough. The recommended depth is 270mm. Cost: Topping up your loft insulation from 120mm to 270mm could cost around £240. Saving: Topping up your loft insulation from 120mm to 270mm will help stop warmth escaping through the roof and could save around £12 a year.
How does the Nest thermostat work? Did you know that your thermostat and how you set it is responsible for 60% of your energy bill? It was with that figure in mind that its inventors set to work and, to date, Nest installations around the world have now saved over 8 billion kWh of energy. Over the first few days and weeks after your Nest installation, this smart thermostat records everything you do with it. It takes that data and then it learns how warm you like your home and when you need the hot water to be on. It even senses if you and your family are away from home – if you are, it will turn itself down. If one room has a draught, it even learns how to compensate for it. All this is done from a stylish thermostat which we can affix to a wall of your choice. Choose from a copper, stainless style, black, or white hue for your thermostat and be sure to ask us about a stand if you’d prefer not to have your Nest on the wall. Imagine that you’re driving home or taking the bus or the tram back from work and you fancy a bath as soon as you get in. Open the Nest app on your mobile phone before you set off and, by the time you get back, your bath will be ready to run. You can use the very same app to turn the hot water off if you’re going to be away for a few days. You can also use your app to see how much your Nest installation app has saved you with its handy monthly Home Report and daily Energy History bulletins. If you’ve ever lived in a home which has suffered from its pipes bursting in extremely cold weather, you’ll understand the inconvenience, disruption, and domestic chaos it causes because it can take a day or two to pick up the pieces from it. In-built to your Nest learning thermostat is a Safety Temperature switch. If you’re away for work or at Christmas, you can set your Nest to stop your pipes from freezing. In addition, if your pets are going to be at home while you’re away, you can adjust the Safety Temperature to make sure they stay warm and comfortable during cold snaps. Nest installer near me?

Check your radiators are heating to the top. If they aren’t, the chances are you need to learn how to bleed a radiator. It sounds a bit medieval, but all it means is releasing the trapped air at the top, which is stopping the hot water from rising. Simply use a radiator bleed key (about £1 in any DIY shop) to open the little valve at the top. You’ll hear air hiss and as soon as you see a drip of water, close it up again. Bingo. Energy-efficient radiators.
