Safety and sav­ings alert over boil­ers

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

HEAT­ING our homes and our wa­ter is the biggest en­ergy cost house­holds face each month.

How­ever, many home­own­ers do not re­alise that well-main­tained boil­ers burn less fuel so hav­ing them checked and heat­ing sys­tems ser­viced will save money and en­ergy. It could also avoid car­bon monox­ide poi­son­ing.

Bob Towse, tech­ni­cal con­sul­tant to the Heat­ing Helpline, says, “Too many home­own­ers rely on old or in­ef­fi­cient boil­ers or heaters. If your boiler is more than 10 years old or has been in­fre­quently ser­viced in the past, we strongly ad­vise that you con­tact a reg­is­tered gas en­gi­neer to in­spect the sys­tem.
