What can you do to lower fuel bills: don't touch that wall thermostat

A free virtual event hosted by SALC and presented by Nathan Gambling, heating lecturer/host of Renewable Energy Podcasts 'BetaTalk'

Registrations are closed

This free workshop will centre around the things people can do right now. 

We do not have to use a title like this but it does engender curiosity as for over 3 decades the advice has been to turn down the wall thermostat. 

In reality our systems should no longer need wall thermostats as modern boilers have been designed to work in conjunction with the temperature outside.

This workshop will discuss:

  • how to turn down the flow temp of a gas 'combi' boiler and how it will save you money

  • what do you do if you have a conventional boiler with a cylinder in the airing cupboard

  • how heat moves into and out of a home at different speeds and why this is important

  • what questions to ask your heating engineer if you need a new boiler

  • what about oil boilers

  • an efficient heating system is all about the 'system' not an efficient heat source

  • what are heat pumps - they are everywhere

  • cost of a heat pump v cost of installing a heat pump - why so much?

  • what does getting heat pump ready mean?

  • Presenter
