Is it profitable to turn off the heating at night? The answer may surprise you

Many people find that turning off the heating at night will save a lot of money. We’re all looking to cut corners as inflation continues to soar and energy costs give us headaches. But does it make sense to turn off the radiators at night?

It might seem that turning off the heating at night or for a certain time during the day will make our bills lower. Nothing more wrong. We suggest why temporarily turning off the radiators is not the best solution.

Do you turn off the heater at night or when you leave the house? It’s a mistake

Many of us think that turning off, for example, when we sleep or are not at home, will lower our bills. This is wrong thinking. It is worth remembering that heating a large area takes time and consumes more energy than heating a warm room. If we often turn off the radiators and then turn them on again, the radiator will work with double strength to heat the cold room and at the same time it will consume more energy. So we end up paying a higher bill anyway.

Remember to vent the radiators. This is the basic thing that should be done before the heating season

In order not to pay horrendous heating bills, it is worth maintaining a constant temperature in the rooms. We should also remember about regular venting, as an air-laden device increases energy consumption. How to do it? New radiators have special air vents. In older types, we should use tools such as a wrench or screwdriver. The radiator should be cold before venting. Close the thermostatic valve – turn it to the zero position. Place a bowl under the vent valve as water will drip from it. Turn the valve with a wrench or screwdriver. There may be a hissing sound coming from the radiator and water will drip when the air is expelled. That’s all. Now just close the valve.
