Millions will pay over the odds for inefficient heating
Despite rising energy prices placing pressure on household budgets, new research shows that millions of homeowners are failing to maintain the health of their heating systems, risking their safety and wasting money.
Just 55% of people have an annual boiler service, and one in 20 consider getting their boiler serviced an unnecessary expense. However, without regular maintenance heating systems lose efficiency, reducing the lifespan of the boiler and increasing the amount of energy it takes to heat our homes.
The research by ADEY MagnaClean revealed the extent of the UK’s ageing boilers with 45% of homeowners claiming their boiler is between 10 and 15 years old. Boilers are commonly expected to last for 12 to 15 years. Worryingly, 25% of people who have lived in their current home for more than 15 years say they have never had their boiler serviced.
Almost a third (30%) of homeowners have a problem with their central heating system, with one in 20 suffering from low heat levels. One in 10 people put up with noisy pipework in their homes which is a common indicator of debris in the heating system, the cause of lower heat levels and boiler damage. A frustrated 15% of people admitted they turn the thermostat up to try to fix their boiler, which will result in burning more fuel than is necessary on a healthy heating system.
“Boilers are the ‘forgotten workhorses’ of our homes,” says Lucy Siegle, broadcaster on consumer and environmental issues. “We expect them to carry on pumping away without any TLC, but a well maintained system costs less to run. Just a few simple steps can keep our heating working safely, efficiently and save on our energy bills every year.
“An annual boiler service from a Gas Safe registered installer is as important as a car’s MOT. Your installer can also clean your radiator system of debris and fit a simple filter that will protect the boiler all year round. The best-selling MagnaClean filter has been proven to save up to 6% of energy in a typical three-bed house every year.”
Installing the best-selling ADEY MagnaClean filter can reduce your maintenance costs by a third, improve the efficiency and lifespan of your boiler and save you money on your central heating bills.
