Nottinghamshire residents who have a combi condensing boiler can receive extra support from Nottingham Energy Partnership (NEP) to help optimise their central heating efficiency and reduce bills.
Optimising the efficiency of your boiler could cut your gas use by an average of 9%. This reduction could result in savings of around £178 a year – just by changing a single setting on your boiler.
The Government’s latest strategy is advising households with condensing combi boilers to reduce the boiler’s flow temperature to 60˚C.
The ‘flow temperature’ is the temperature to which your boiler heats the water before sending it to your radiators. Typically, the flow temperature is set to 80°C, which burns more gas than is needed. Turning it down to 60o will reduce consumption and save you money on your gas bills, without reducing warmth and comfort.
You can easily change the flow setting on your boiler yourself by following this step-by-step guide: www.nottenergy.com/step-1/.
If you’re not confident in changing the flow setting, can’t access your boiler, or need support because of a health condition, NEP’s team of Technical Officers are offering free home visits to make the change for you.
To book your free home visit, call 0115 985 9057. Or go to www.nottenergy.com to find out more about NEP and the services and Cost of Living Support they offer.
Do you have a combi condensing boiler?
A condensing combi boiler heats both your water and your central heating from the same unit. They can be identified by five copper pipes coming out of the bottom of the boiler.
