Here are several home heating, plumbing and energy saving advices from Peter Brown, a proud to be a well respected, reliable and family run plumbing, boiler and central heating expert in Harrow offering fantastic levels of service.
Use tin foil. One way to prevent unnecessary heat loss from radiators, particularly on those attached to external walls, is to use heat reflective aluminium foil behind the radiator. This prevents heat disappearing through the wall by reflecting it back into the room, says Sophie Neuburg, energy campaigner for charity Friends of the Earth. Foil specially designed for the purpose can be bought for under £10. “You can even use good quality kitchen foil,” says Carl Brennand, assistant manager of website Moneymagpie, although it’s generally not as effective. Setting timers on heating is important. “It’s a myth that keeping it on all day is better,” says Luthra. If it’s very cold, the timer should be set to switch the heating on earlier, rather than turning the thermostat up to warm the house rapidly, according to Age UK.

It’s easy to turn the thermostat all the way up when it’s freezing cold but what temperature should your house be? Aim to set your main room thermostat somewhere between 18°C and 21°C.It’s also a good idea to set your thermostat to one temperature and then use a timer to turn it on and off when you need the heating most. That way you won’t waste excess energy from leaving the heating on too high, for too long.
Upgrade heating controls: Smart thermostat imageRoom thermostats allow households to set and maintain the temperature at home. A programmer sets the heating to turn on and off at certain times of the day to suit your lifestyle. Thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) let householders control the temperature of each radiator. Cost: Costs can vary significantly due to the variety of heating systems types and sizes and controls available. We recommended comparing quotes from professional installers. Saving: Installing and using a full set of heating controls means that you can be warm exactly when and where you want in your home. You could also save around £80 a year if you currently don’t have any of these heating controls.
Walk in showers are stylish and offer a practical solution for those with limited space because they have no doors that require room to open. If you like the idea of this modern, stylish solution you have several great options to choose from. Walk in showers are usually large enough to incorporate a drying area – so no need to step out into the cold air ever again!. If you like the idea of a true wet room experience, we can make your bathroom a completely watertight, fully tiled room, with or without a partial screen. As an added luxury, and if your ceiling height permits, you could select a ceiling-mounted shower head to give your walk in shower a glorious, hotel style rainshower effect, or alternatively a wall-mounted waterfall shower column gives an equally luxury feel. Enclosed shower cubicles (also called cabins or pods) are self contained units set on an integrated shower tray. Dependent on the space you have available they are a compact option with several sizes and shapes of tray available and a several door opening choices. For example the best solution for your bathroom may be a single sliding door, a pivot door, a bifold or quad doors where two doors slide out like wings. An enclosed cubicle can give the choice of square, rectangular, quadrant and even offset options. Find additional details on https://www.peterbrown.net/harrow-shower-solutions.html.
