Energy saving tips for fuel heating
- Schedule annual maintenace of the system, keep it in good condition and replace filters regularly.
- The usage of fuel additives results in economy, better combustion, cleaner system, improved performance and extension of the life of the installation. For more information see Dieselor OK.
- Close the curtains at dusk. This will reduce heat losses through the windows.
- By placing shutters to block heat loss through the window and air leakages, you will reduce energy consumption by up to 20%.
- During the day keep the windows with a southern exposure without curtains.
- To avoid affecting the circulation of heat, do not put objects, curtains or furniture in front of the radiators and other heat sources. Clean them from dust regularly.
- In winter open the windows regularly but for a short time and with wide open windows. That way you will keep the heat of the walls.
- Put a thermostat to program and regulate the tempretature. This will save you about 10% per year.
- Program the thermostat at a lower temperature when you are out of the house to save up to 20% of the energy.
- When you sleep, reduce the temperature by 1-2 degrees.
- Observe the 30-minute rule: reduce temperature 30 minutes before bedtime and increase it 30 minutes before wake up time.
- Reduce the overall temperature by just 1 degree during the day and you will save 2% of the costs, by 2 degrees for 4% and at the same time you will achieve 6% less emissions.
- If you lower the temperature with 5 degrees at night and with 10 degrees during the day while you are away, you will save 20%.
- Feel the gap between the door and the threshold to stop heat losses.
- If there are gaps between your windows and walls, fill them with silicone.
- Consider replacement of the heating system, if it is over 20 years old. Modern systems can reduce fuel consumption by 15-25%.
