Installing a boiler in your property can be a daunting and potentially expensive prospect. However, if you spend some time doing your research you can cut the costs of having the work done quite significantly. Even better, you can actually save more money in the long run and reduce your fuel consumption considerably by choosing your equipment (and the company you deal with) wisely. That way, you save money and protect the environment at the same time.

Many people have a lot of questions at the beginning of this process, and it can easily get confusing. Here we answer some of the most common.

Who should I choose to complete my boiler work?

Even if you’re having repairs done rather than a full replacement, you’ll want to deal with the most professional experts you can find. This will vary depending on your local area, as most of the best companies specialise in a particular region, For instance, Keston boiler repair in south London. Finding a highly reputable firm that knows your area is usually the best course of action. 

Do most companies charge the same?

Having your work completed by an honest and professional team will mean you get a more competitive quote and you’re much less likely to have costly problems to deal with later. Cheaper options are rarely the most economical or environmentally friendly in the long run. This is why it’s best to get several quotes and shop around, without being pressured into making a snap decision.

Can the government help me with the costs?

A lot of publicity was previously given to the government’s Green Deal scheme, which first launched in 2012 and was controversially axed. It provided a way for people to borrow funding to help make energy-efficient home improvements such as replacing their boiler, heating system, double glazing or other features. Unfortunately, the scheme suffered several setbacks which resulted in it closing to new applications in 2015. You may be eligible for some financial help from the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, until March 2017 when it may also be retired.

Are E-Bikes Really Environmentally Friendly?

Fri Oct 21 , 2016
E-bikes are quickly becoming a popular alternative to other methods of transport. Compared with some alternatives, they offer a great selection of benefits, primarily cutting down on fuel costs as well as the impact their carbon dioxide emissions have on the natural environment. However, some have argued that the overall effect of having more electric bikes around is likely to be negative on the environment and people’s health and fitness in general. Here we consider both viewpoints. Firstly, it comes down to what an e-bike is being used as a substitute for. If you regularly drive your own car to work or throughout the rest of the day, switching to a fast ebike might be an obvious way to reduce your carbon footprint. These bikes, with manual peddling assisted by a battery-charged motor when required, can really make the difference for some people who would find it highly impractical to cycle to work purely because the journey is slightly too long or difficult. Perhaps the only thing stopping you taking your bike is that steep hill just before you get to the office? Please follow and like us:
