How can I save on my heating energy bill?

Besides our article on how to save money with tado°, here are some more practical tips that you can apply to further reduce your energy consumption while maintaining a comfortable temperature at home.

Investment tips:

  • Getting your heating system serviced once a year will keep your heating system running efficiently.
  • Install double-glazing into your windows and doors to prevent thermal dissipation.
  • Insulate your walls to avoid heat dissipation.

Behavioral tips:

  • Bleed the air from your radiators to keep your heating system working as efficiently as possible. You can hear that air is in the radiators when the pipes are rustling.
  • Ventilate your house by opening doors/windows fully for no longer than 5 minutes.
  • Houseplants can save you energy because they increase the humidity. This will increase comfort and prevents you from putting the heating too high.
  • Keeping the area in front of your radiators clear (approximately 20 inches) allows your radiators to get the warmth into the room more easily.
  • Decrease the temperature in your house by one degree to save about 6% on your heating costs.
  • Close hatches or curtains at night so that the warm air won’t escape as fast.
