Over the next week are are going to put up blogs that look at the best way to heat your home – today we start with heating your home with a condensing energy efficient gas boiler.
In each of the blogs we are going to assume that you have just moved in to your house, or are looking to do some serious renovation, and as such you want to take a look at your heating. There are several typical ways that you can heat your home, each with their advantages and disadvantages, so let’s take a look at each one and give you all the key resources you will need to get the most appropriate heating system installed in your home.
Every home is different, therefore the heating system will vary!
Each home is different, and as such each one may benefit from a different heating solution. A house with big gardens in the country may wish to install a Ground Source Heat Pump, whilst a flat in London with Economy 7 may opt for storage heaters. There is no one size fits all solution. In some properties you might even want to combine two forms of heating!
