How to Reduce Your Utility Bills?

With the price cap revised again, energy bills across the UK are expected to go up in October. The average energy bill may see an 82% increase to £296 per month from October and £388 per month from January 2023.

Although each household will get a £400 energy grant to mitigate the pain, that wouldn’t be enough to cushion the blow. However, there are some things you can do to reduce your utility bills.

Have Your Boiler Serviced

For many households, central heating is the biggest contributing factor to their annual utility bill.

No wonder then you should do everything you can to keep your boiler performing at its peak efficiency. The easiest way to do that is to have your boiler serviced regularly.

When you sign up for a boiler plan with CBFM Heating, you can expect regular servicing. Our engineer will thoroughly check and clean your boiler. We will also identify any problems that can turn serious and carry out the necessary repair and replace any worn-out spares to ensure your boiler works smoothly and efficiently.

Choose an Energy Efficient Boiler

If your boiler is faulty, beyond repair or very old, a better option is to replace it altogether.

Although this option may set you back by a couple of thousand pounds and won’t provide instant relief. However, it will result in massive savings in the long run.

According to an estimate by the Energy Saving Trust, replacing your G-rated gas boiler with an A-rated condensing boiler may help you save £300 a year.

These modern condensing boilers feature a programmer, radiator controls and room thermostat.

Use Central Heating Controls

If you haven’t yet invested in thermostatic a radiator valve, room thermostat and programmer, now is the right time to do it. Using them can help you save £75 a year. It will also bring down your carbon emissions by 320kg per year.

Heating controls allow you to:

  • Set the heating and hot water to turn on and off according to your needs
  • Set different temperatures for different rooms
  • Heat only the rooms that require it
  • Maintain a comfortable temperature without wasting energy
