Householders could save hundreds of pounds each year on heating and plumbing repairs, thanks to a new website service launched recently.
Heating-and-Plumbing- solutions, aimed at the DIY enthusiast, gives householders a step- by- step guide to undertaking their own heating and plumbing repairs.
The easy to navigate website provides visitors with everything they need to know, in order to undertake tasks ranging from simple repairs, through to installing a full central heating system.
Staggering increases in gas and electricity prices have resulted in a plethora of energy saving tips from the Government and the energy companies; but the fact remains, if we want to pay less for our gas, we’ve got to use less.
Gas-elec’s g-save is a new energy saving device, launched in October 2008 – in trial conditions and has so far come up with impressive savings – from 22% in a 2 bedroom terraced cottage to 34% in a 4 bedroom detached house (calculated on actual meter readings with, and without, the g-save).
In February 2009, Good Housekeeping magazine awarded the g-save their Innovation of the Month, when it achieved savings of 31% in trials.
E.ON, one of the UK’s largest power and gas companies, has reaffirmed its commitment to helping households reduce their gas bills, by offering £700 off a new boiler for a limited time only.*
For people over the age of 60, this amount could increase to £1,000.
The Energy Saving Trust has advised that replacing an older boiler with a new energy efficient condensing boiler, could save households around a third on their heating bills, which with full heating controls, could save UK households as much as £270 a year.
If you’ve never hear of mCHP – you’re probably not alone – but it’s a term we’re going to hear a lot more about in the future: mCHP stands for Micro Combined Heat and Power – and is the name for boilers that generate electricity as well as providing heating and hot water.
This WhisperGen from Powergen is the first commercially available domestic mCHP boiler in the world. It is powered by mains gas, to provide central heating and hot water. It also converts excess heat that would normally escape through the exhaust flue, into electricity to power your lights and other household appliances.
