Check your radiators are heating to the top. If they aren’t, the chances are you need to learn how to bleed a radiator. It sounds a bit medieval, but all it means is releasing the trapped air at the top, which is stopping the hot water from rising. Simply use a radiator bleed key (about £1 in any DIY shop) to open the little valve at the top. You’ll hear air hiss and as soon as you see a drip of water, close it up again. Bingo. Energy-efficient radiators.

Stop heat being lost up the chimney. It’s now fairly common to have fireplaces that are merely decorative. If you’re not using yours then you should consider a chimney balloon, says Potter. “There’s an amazing amount of heat that can be lost through an open fireplace,” she says. A chimney balloon, made from a special laminate, can be bought for about £20 and works by being placed inside the chimney hole, just out of sight. It’s then inflated until it completely shuts out any incoming cold air or escaping heat. Just be sure not to start a fire without removing it. There are also woollen chimney insulators on the market. But again, make sure you remove them before starting any fires.
Ideal Boilers are a British manufacturer that have grown exceptionally over the last decade. They now sell over 10,000 units per year. Unlike Worcester, their warranty isn’t confusing. Ideal Boilers are generally the odd one out. They are heading for being known as a premium brand, but they sit in the mid-range in terms of price. The boilers that rival Worcester Bosch, tend to be 10-15% cheaper when using a local installer. Of course, with WarmZilla being so cheap when it comes to Worcester boilers, they tend to work out at around the same price. See more details at https://www.peterbrown.net/.
