Got a combi boiler? The small tweak to the flow temperature that could cut your gas bill by £100/year
If you have a combi boiler (the most common type, one without a hot water cylinder), a key way to save is to reduce the flow temperature – basically the water that circulates around the system and heats your radiators. It's usually set higher than needed by default, which means it doesn't operate in its most efficient mode.
Innovation charity Nesta has launched a MoneySaving boiler challenge with a nifty tool on how to do it, which it says could cut gas bills by an average 9% (£112 a year).
To be clear, this is different from turning down your main heating thermostat or the valves on your radiators – it won't lower the temperature of your home. Your radiators will just feel slightly cooler and rooms may take a little longer to warm up, but they will still heat your home effectively.
What is a boiler service – and do I need one? In the same way your car needs a regular check-up at the garage, your boiler needs a regular service. It gives you peace of mind that everything’s working properly.
