The 10 tips to save gas at home

 

    • The temperature at home should not exceed 20 degrees . Excessive heat is harmful to health. With an extra degree it is likely to increase consumption by 7 to 10%.
    • Install a chrono-thermostat in a central point of the house away from drafts or heat sources. Set the temperature and ignition timing by adjusting it according to our needs.
    • It is advisable to install the thermostatic valves on the radiators to regulate consumption and increase the temperature only in rooms whose needs are higher.
    • Cabinets, radiator covers and curtains can represent a barrier to the free circulation of hot air in the vicinity of radiators.
    • The air exchange is important but it takes less than 10 minutes . Do it during the hottest hours of the day.
    • The maintenance of the systems and the boiler is very important. If sludge or limescale is present in the radiators, this could result in up to 20% waste of fuel.
    • The air must be purged from the radiators each year before turning on the heater via the vent valve.
      This allows a correct operation of the heater. If, during the winter, it is not completely heated, it may indeed be an air problem inside it.
    • Check your fixtures and windows . Double-walled glass prevents leakage.
    • Place behind the radiators on the outer walls of the insulating panels . They are available on the market for just a few euros and do not let the heat dissipate, avoiding unnecessary heating of the wall.
  • For those with independent heating, it is better to prefer a condensing boiler with a modulating burner that guarantees maximum efficiency in all operating conditions.
