Here are some home heating, plumbing and energy saving recommendations 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.
Watch out for mini-draughts. “Lots of draught comes through the letterbox,” says Potter. It’s worthwhile putting an extra barrier there in the form of a “brush”. They may be a nightmare for junk-mailers trying to force through that 15th pizza takeaway offer, but they could prevent a chill breezing through the house. The same goes for keyholes, which can be protected with “simple circular (keyhole covers) that slip over the top”, says Potter, especially with the older, wider keyholes. Cat or dog flaps can also be filled with some sheep’s wool insulation or pieces of blanket. “It’s amazing how even a small draught can make a room a lot colder, so if you can cut that bit of air out it immediately makes a difference,” says Potter.

Use any spare foam pipe lagging as a door draught excluder – just cut a section to fit the bottom of your door, then slide it on to form a tight seal against the floor. You could also use spray foam insulation to fill any cracks and gaps in your walls or at the back of cupboards. Just be sure to check the can for all safety precautions. If you really want to take it up a level, call the professionals in to install loft insulation and keep all that lovely warmth from escaping through the roof.
Insulate your walls: Although wall insulation is a bigger investment, and costs vary, it can keep your home warm and cosy and result in a large saving. Most homes built after 1920 have cavity walls. If your home’s cavity walls are uninsulated, adding cavity wall insulation could save up to £150 a year off your energy bills (based on a typical 3-bedroom semi-detached house). Most homes built before 1920 have solid walls. Solid wall insulation can save around £260 a year off your energy bills (based on a typical 3-bedroom semi-detached house).
If you are looking for a reliable, professional and expert underfloor heating system installer in North West London and surrounding area, then we can help. Our specialist team can install and repair wet systems. For many homeowners, radiators are not an ideal solution. They take up far too much wall space and much of the extra heat they generate is often blocked off partly or fully by furniture that’s put in front of it. You end up paying a lot of money to heat the back of your sofa while you and your family feel the need to put extra clothing on to keep warm. Underfloor heating is a solution that more and more Harrow homeowners are turning to so that they can keep their rooms at the temperature they want and to rid their walls of unsightly radiators. To find out if it’s suitable for your home, why not get in touch with us and speak to a Peter Brown underfloor heating installer? Underfloor heating – what is it and what are its benefits? Peter Brown’s underfloor heating installers specialise in wet systems which pump hot water through the pipes under your floor. When your Peter Brown underfloor heating installer visits you, you can discuss with them the system that’s better for you. We only install electric (dry) underfloor heating in bathrooms that will be tiled over as it is generally too expensive to run in large areas. For more information click here to make an enquiry or call 020 8863 1155. Why do homeowners invest in underfloor heating? The heat from the underfloor pipes rises to provide warmth to your home and the temperature is fully controllable. You can choose the temperature you want for each room in which you’ve installed your underfloor heating system. Energy experts agree that underfloor heating means lower energy bills because they don’t have to work as hard to provide you with the warmth you want as radiators do. Which rooms can I install underfloor heating in? The most popular rooms for underfloor heating installation among Peter Brown customers are the bathroom, bedrooms, the kitchen, and the living room. We’re being asked more and more by clients to retrospectively fit underfloor heating in their conservatories so that they can get better use out of them during the colder months.
