Make The Most Of Your Newly Insulated Home With Efficient Heating
Boiler Upgrades & Heating Controls
Modern boilers and heat controls is the efficient and cost effective way to keep you home warm. If you have recently had new or replaced insulation in your home then why not consider upgrading your boiler to make the most of your new insulation.
Older boilers tend to be less efficient and cost effective. Complete Insulations can install a new boiler in your home under the SEAI Grant aided schemes to give you more than 90% heat efficiency. If you have an older boiler, especially if not regularly services, can be as low as 60% efficient. In money terms this can mean that up to 40% of your heating bill is wasted.
Heating controls can monitor the temperature in every room of your house and react accordingly to reduce heat and hot water heating as needed. By installing modern heating controls throughout your, home you could save you up to 20% on your heating bills.
Heating Controls Explained
Heating Controls have 4 main components.
Thermostat Radiator Valves (TRV’s) are installed on each radiator. Each radiator can then monitor its own temperature, reducing waste from overheating rooms that are not in use.
Having thermostats installed throughout your home allows you to control the optimum temperature in different areas of your house, especially in parts that you may not spend a lot of time. For example a slightly lower temperature in the bedrooms than your living room or kitchen.
By installing a 7 day 2/3 zone time clock allows you to take control over preset heating. With different settings for weekends or holidays, time-locks ensure that the heating is always running efficiently.
Splitting and Controlling Different Zones
Splitting your hot water heating and your room heating allows you to heat your hot water through your boiler. This allows you to have hot water without heating your radiators. Splitting your system again into different elements; upstairs and downstairs for instance, allows you to heat different areas of the house individually. By breaking your system into different elements you only use your system where and when it is needed. This is a very cost effective way to heat your home and water.
