Insulation is important as winter approaches

2010-10-21 15:28:14

Anyone considering replacing their oil boiler this winter has been advised to install insulation, such as double-glazing, in order to ensure they keep heat inside the house.

Having oil boilers regularly maintained through a scheme such as the one offered by Team Energy is important to make sure that they are running as efficiently as possible. Anyone who wishes to replace their boiler for a more efficient or effective model should look at installing double glazing so that their investment pays off over time, according to an article in the Aberdeen Press and Journal.

The article stated, "If you are spending money to change the heating, it is advisable to ensure that you have double-glazing to keep the heat in."

Although the cost of double glazing is relatively high, it pays for itself over time, saving an average of £60 per year off fuel bills.

Regular boiler maintenance through the Team Energy scheme also cuts bills by improving energy efficiency. In addition, home heating oil users can also opt to try premium kerosene in their boiler, which emits fewer pollutants and cleans the boiler as it works its way through the system.
