IF you go away on hol­i­day in win­ter, keep your heat­ing on – al­beit turned down – while you’re away. This keeps the sys­tem run­ning ef­fi­ciently and helps to pre­vent pipes from freez­ing,” says Karl Tul­loch from Righ­tio (www.righ­tio.co.uk), which pro­vides home re­pairs and ser­vices through­out the UK. Some boiler con­trols have a hol­i­day mode, which shuts some but not all of the cen­tral heat­ing sys­tem off.

Al­ter­na­tively, you may be able to pro­gramme the heat­ing to come on briefly twice a day; keep your nor­mal set­tings, but turn down the ra­di­a­tor valves; or turn the heat­ing on and off re­motely when you want with a smart con­troller, such as Worces­ter’s Wave. This is an in­ter­net-con­nected pro­gram­mable con­troller for cen­tral heat­ing and hot wa­ter that can be op­er­ated us­ing a smart phone or tablet – see worces­ter-bosch.co.uk/ prod­ucts/boiler-con­trols/wave
