With the time of year that in it naturally all our attention has turned to turning back on the heat. We have been lucky to date and its been pretty mild but I think the time has come to think about it again. For most of us this side of the world the cost of home heating can be quite a substantial bill this side of year.
When we moved into our house we had lots of decisions to make regarding our central heating system. The previous owner had gas installed half way to the front driveway and an oil burner out the back. However the oil burner was as old as myself so we need a new central heating boiler.
Who knew there was so many choices available for boilers and heating systems available. It wasn’t a concern in our old house as we inherited the gas system and just went with what was there but this time around having to select the type of system and type of boiler meant lots more decisions to be made.
I think like anything when it comes to home renovation or new builds it is critical to shop around and talk to the relevant tradespeople. Its also important to know and understand your own objectives and requirements and to discuss how they might fit in with your budget constraints. I remember somebody once saying to me invest in the items like wiring, pluming, heating buying the best you can within your budget. Consider the longer term and the potential saving particularly for the likes of heating systems This is particularly relevant with advent of lots more eco friendly heating systems and them becoming so much more mainstream and affordable.
Has anybody an tips or comments on their current heating system? If so id love to hear them in the comments.
