Educated estimates suggest that almost 66% of those aged over 65 years avoid turning up the heating during winter due to concerns about energy costs. Installers of boilers are in the perfect place to help, by educating homeowners and ensuring that they get the most efficiency from their boiler by keeping it in good repair.
Over five million households in Britain are currently considered to be living in ‘fuel poverty’ - within the EU, only Estonia spends more of its total income on energy bills. ACE, the Association for the Conservation of Energy, has estimated that around 14,780 people died last winter due to not being able to afford to heat their homes - a shocking, troubling figure that is predicted to sadly increase as winters get colder, house prices rise and existing housing stock deteriorates.
Contaminants within boilers and heating systems can have a seriously detrimental effect on efficiency, reducing the ability to heat rooms properly and forcing the system to work harder, beyond its original scope of action. Sludge, scale, magnetic particles and other particulate matter can all contribute to this reduced efficiency, meaning that more and more money has to be spent for less and less heat.
In recent years, there have been major advances in filtration technology and you can get the best of this from HECAS. We supply a wide range of filtration devices, air and dirt separators and the essential dosing pots, which are used to facilitate the addition of various chemicals to water systems. Getting the most out of your boiler shouldn’t be difficult and, with HECAS, you can make sure that it isn’t.
