Is your commercial boiler burning a hole in your bottom line?
As we say goodbye to the cold, dreary winter months and hello to the English springtime, your boiler sits idle, lonely, and craving attention, yearning to be used. We’re stuck in that awkward middle ground of spring. The mornings are cold and crisp but the afternoons are warm and sunny. However, we have ways to make sure you aren’t burning a hole in your bottom line and saving as much money as you can from your commercial boiler in these months.
Take advantage of the sun
Although it may not be possible to switch your boiler off completely because of the harsh morning chill, it doesn’t mean that you should be wasting money throughout the rest of the day. Timing your boiler for the early morning and then off for the rest of the day will ease the bite of the cold.
If you run a cafe, for example, early risers will be looking for some respite and a coffee. If they can escape into your shop where it’s warm then that’s a win-win situation. As the day goes on, especially if the sun’s out, people won’t notice the change in temperature. They might even think it’s too warm. Take this chance to turn off the boiler.
One of the easiest ways to save yourself money is to invest in a more efficient boiler. It’ll cost you more money up front, but you save on future heating bills. If a semi-detached house could save £205 a year, think how much your business could save.
Modern condensing boilers are also better for the environment. Depending on what image you want customers to have of your business, you could claim to be a greener company. Not only does it earn you brownie points with the general public, but it’s also the right thing to do, full stop.
If you aren’t ready to invest, then the warm weather gives you the perfect opportunity to get your boiler serviced. By doing it now, you’ll be able to avoid any unnecessary costs, damages, and repairs during the colder months. That’s when you and your customers will need it most.
Make the most of the warm weather during spring and don’t waste unnecessary money using your boiler. Not only will you feel more at ease, but you’ll also save cash along the way.
