Three New Years resolutions you SHOULD keep
We’re three days into the New Year and by now a number of resolutions have already been broken. Whether you’ve promised yourself you will go to the gym more often, stop spending money or give something up, resolutions can be hard to keep. But at Warmer Homes Heating and Renewables, we’ve got three New Year’s Resolutions that we think everyone should make, and keep, so as to stay warm, keep healthy and save money.
Resolution One: Ensure you get your boiler serviced every year – We will service all our boiler installations for just £70 per year, and all our new boiler installations come with three years free servicing. If you aren’t sure why you should have one of our experts service your boiler, here’s four good reasons:
- Cut your heating costs – The expert Warmer Homes Heating and Renewables team that services your boiler will make sure that it is working as efficiently as possible. An efficient boiler will help to cut your heating costs, giving you more money to spend on your family.
- Avoid costly repairs – A small, minor problem can often turn into a major boiler fault needing a repair or, in the worst cases, a boiler replacement. During your annual service our expert engineer will examine your boiler and identify any faults or potential faults, helping you to ensure they are fixed before they become a problem.
- Faulty boilers can kill – Although this may sound dramatic, boilers that leak carbon monoxide can kill – fast. If your boiler isn’t correctly installed, maintained or ventilated they can produce carbon monoxide. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include headaches, drowsiness, nausea, breathlessness and stomach pains. These signs are hard to spot and can be confused with tiredness or a cold, and carbon monoxide, known as the silent killer, can’t be seen or smelt. An annual boiler service will go a long way in helping to avoid deadly faults.
- It’s the law if you are a landlord – If you own a property or properties that you rent out, you are legally obligated to get your boilers serviced and ensure each of your properties has an up-to-date Gas Safety Certificate.
Resolution Two: Replace your old and inefficient boiler with a new boiler and save ££££ – Your boiler accounts for over half of your annual energy use, so installing an efficient boiler could make a huge difference to how warm your home feels and keeping your energy bills low. Replacing an old gas boiler with no controls with an A-rated high efficiency condensing boiler and full set of heating controls will significantly cut your home’s carbon dioxide emissions, and could save you as much as £340 a year.
Resolution Three: Install a Carbon Monoxide alarm - By installing one of these monitors in your home you and your family will be protected against the potentially fatal effects of Carbon Monoxide.
