It’s widely known that electrical heating systems are among the most used based on their ease of use and convenience. The downside to this is that they’re also some of the most expensive, often proving to be three times more expensive than gas or oil usage. With that in mind, it’s advisable to switch to a less expensive heating method to avoid a nasty surprise when your next bill comes in.
How Can I Be More Fuel Efficient In My Everyday Life?
1. Invest in Long-Term Solutions for a Warmer Home
This might seem like a big, expensive job, but using excessive fuel to heat your home is just as costly, as well as damaging. Simple changes like investing in double glazing, thermal doors, overall insulation and draught proofing can make a world of difference, while also creating a more fuel-efficient environment at home. That way, you automatically gain a warmer home and spend less on fuel consumption. Two birds, one stone!
2. Change Your Heating System
3. Control Your Heating with a Timer
This one might be a little obvious, but it’s remarkable how effective it can be. By leaving heating on constantly, your heat source is used at a faster pace, and reduces the efficiency of your fuel consumption. Using a timer will allow you to be strategic with your heating: setting it to come on for an hour before you wake up/before you get home from work/during particularly cold evenings can make all the difference.
There’s no chance of forgetting to switch it on or off as it’s all set to your own schedule. This takes another responsibility off your hands, reducing the risk of running out of heat sooner than expected, as well as our impactful carbon footprint. This is a double win if you ask us!
4. A Fuel-Efficient Option for Home Heating
Most oil companies provide the standard kerosene to their customers, but Certa have an additional premium kerosene option for ordering. Our premium kerosene is a high-performance oil, working to benefit you and your heating system in multiple ways.
This option has been created to improve the efficiency of your heating system, reducing service issues and keeping your fuel fresh for a longer period of time. It also works to prevent sludge formation, as well as the build-up of carbon and deposit.
Overall, it guarantees overall efficiency, a clean burn and optimum performance. If you’re looking for the ideal home heating or range cooker, this is a no-brainer if you ask us!
