Spring so far has been a very chilling one, with the ‘beast from the east’ bringing massive snow disruption to much of the nation and the wind chill down to almost record levels. Keeping warm this winter and early spring has been challenging and costly for many.
Winter and early spring is the time when our use of central heating is at it’s heaviest, boilers work overtime and broken boilers become common place in the boiler industry. Couple that with many older boilers burning excessive amounts of fuel, increases in gas bills are a burden none of us need.
Of course broken boilers and old fuel hungry boilers aren’t the only problem in harsh winters. Poorly insulated homes, windows and doors that let in drafts also add to the misery when it comes to our quest to keep warm.
Good insulation and cutting down drafts is often the key to cutting fuel bills and keeping the home warm.
