How to Make your Period Property more Energy Efficient
While period properties make wonderful homes and certainly offer much more space than contemporary ones, they do, however, lack the energy efficiency features that are now standard in residential new builds, which can be a problem.
Nowadays, property owners are highly motivated to make residential buildings as energy efficient as possible. There are numerous benefits to this approach, ranging from saving money on utility bills, making the home more comfortable to live in, improving its resale value and reducing harm to the environment
One of the most important measures owners can implement is a thorough review of their central heating system. If their central heating boiler is older than 15 years, home owners are advised to seriously consider getting a new, energy efficient replacement.
For existing central heating systems that still have plenty of life left, one can improve their system’s efficiency by having radiators professionally power flushed. Another good idea is to replace any old style, seam-top single-pressed panel radiators with more modern, fin-type versions that provide a greater heat output and surface area.
Last, but certainly not least, owners are advised to fit thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) to all their radiators to give them more local control over heating the areas of their home that are in use, not the unused rooms.
