Heating system

There are various types of boilers on the market. The most efficient are the condensing ones which, thanks to a management intelligent of the strictly necessary functions, undoubtedly allow considerable savings. For example, if the house remains empty for a period of time in winter, it would be sufficient to activate the boiler with the sole anti-freeze function, excluding the heating of the house. Do not forget to keep the appliance in perfect working order with periodic checks and reviews by specialized personnel.

Closely related to the boiler are the radiators, which are an integral part of the home’s heating system. It is essential not to hinder their operation, avoiding to contrast their range of furniture with furnishing accessories that can prevent the emanation of heat. It is also important to carry out a purge to eliminate residual air in the pipes.

Fortunately, technological progress is constantly evolving. In the family economy it is good to evaluate some options such as the energy of solar panels, underfloor heating or the use of a pellet stove.

Beware of waste

A well insulated house is synonymous with great energy saving, doors and windows in excellent condition promote and maintain a stable internal temperature for longer. It is essential to intervene with small do-it-yourself works in case there is heat dispersion also through the application of adhesive insulating strips. It seems trivial but these days, everything makes a difference. Using the lid on the pots allows you to reach the desired temperature in less time. It is also possible to turn off the stove a few moments earlier to complete cooking using the residual heat.

Opening the tap water only for a few seconds, with the mixer positioned even halfway between cold water and hot water activates the boiler burner with a consequent waste of gas. In any case, a few seconds of water would not allow hot water to be obtained, therefore, if not really necessary, you must open the tap with the mixer set to cold water.

Room ventilation yes, but with precautions. Changing the air is a necessary action and must be done in the hottest hours of the day, and for a limited time in the cold seasons, so as to allow a limited effort by the boiler to bring the house back to the right temperature.

Basically, you must first of all take into consideration your habits. Each family unit has its own needs but for save on gas very few useful tricks are enough to return an effective result.
