Take control of your heating

Save the easy way

So the winter freeze has finally hit with our first sightings of snow recently across Yorkshire. With this sudden chill in the air after a so far mild winter, it is extremely tempting to ramp the thermostat up to the high twenties in an attempt to stay warm. However this naturally come at a high price at the end of the month.

However, there are ways you can turn the heating up and still keep your bills at a reasonable level. Heating controls are a great way to have control over where your heat goes in the home. Here are a few tips to help you keep your home warm and efficient.

Radiator Thermostat Valves
These allow you to control the temperature of each room in the house individually therefore, only heating the rooms you need. No point in heating that spare room no one sleeps in!

Individual Room Thermostats
This tells your boiler the temperature you want in your rooms. Your boiler will turn on to heat the rooms to your required temperature, then cut out once this has been reached.
The ideal temperature you your rooms should be around 19C to ensure you are warm but remain energy efficient. As Richard said in our Tips & Tricks Video – View Here!
Remember to keep the thermostat away from your radiators as this can affect its reading of the room.

Set the Time!
Time controls can be a great way to save energy. Set your heating to come on just before you get up in a morning, and go off just before you leave. Then at night set it to come on around 10 minutes before you get home and go off around the time you go to bed! Therefore, you only heat your home while you are in it!

Boiler Service
In order to keep your heating at top efficiency have your boiler regularly serviced. We recommend once per year. This will ensure your boiler performs at the top of its game to save your money.

Protect Against the Cold

Worcester Bosch Accredited Installer

A Trusted Trader

At Scarbrook we are very proud to be classified as a Worcester Accredited Installer (WAI) - as we have been for some time. This title means a great deal to us as we are trusted by Worcester Bosch to install their combi boilers into the homes of our customers, while maintaining high standards of service.

Whilst this is a great accreditation for us at Scarbrook, you may find yourself asking – what does this mean for me?

Excellent Question!

As Worcester are happy to promote our services to you as a customer, we hope this will give you increased confidence in the high standard of service we provide to all our customers.

In addition to this as an accredited installer we can offer extended guarantees on your new combi boiler, when compared to a standard installer. This can mean an extension of between 3-7 Years depending upon the product purchased. Standard product guarantee usually only lasts 2 years!!

Worcester don’t hand out accreditations to any plumbing business, a complex series has to be followed. As a reputable trader and installer they wished to supply Scarbrook were invited to join the WAI scheme. In order to qualify, installers must have relevant Gas safe and OFTEC approvals – with the additions of certain others for differing products.

For more information on what made Scarbrook a Worcester Accredited installer or for information on the other brands we are Accredited Installers for, contact our team today on 0800 500 3103 or leave your details on our website for a call back at a convenient time.

Energy Saving Ideas...

To Save You Money In 2016

Throughout the winter household bills are naturally at their highest point of the year. Scarbrook Plumbing & Heating are always looking for ways to save our followers money. Not only do we give you prices that are guaranteed to be 20% cheaper than British Gas, but we give you our top tips to save energy around your home! 

Energy Efficient Showerheads.
Something as simple as a different shower head may not sound like it could save you much money around the home. However, with the development of higher powered showers a greater volume of water is now being used in your daily shower.
A more water efficient head fitted to your shower could save you up to £70 / year split across water and energy bills.

Cavity Wall Insulation
Most people country wide now have Cavity Wall Insulation installed in their homes. However, if you haven’t then you could be losing an expensive amount of heat through your walls. According to the Energy Saving Trust a standard 3 bedroom semi-detached house could save around £160 / year by getting this installed.

Loft Insulation
Similarly to Cavity Wall Insulation, Loft Insulation could save a lot of heat escaping through the roof of your home. You should have 300 mm of insulation in your loft space to keep the optimum levels of heat inside you home. The correct amount of loft insulation could save you up to £175 per year with certain grants available to help you with installation.

For more helpful ideas to keep you home as energy efficient as possible this winter watch our series of Tips & Tricks videos presented by Scarbrook’s very own Richard. All videos are available on either the Scarbrook Facebook Page or YouTube Channel.

Get It Right In 2016

Get Scarbrook!

At Scarbrook Plumbing and Heating we are highly experienced boiler and central heating installers. With this vast experience we are able to give all our customers the best possible advice when selecting their new combi boiler.

Countless times we have seen customers become confused by the pricing strategies employed by some of the giants in the heating industry. For this reason Scarbrook have made your choice as simple as we can!

A smaller house, for example a two bedroom terraced property, requires a much smaller boiler to a larger property, for example a five bedroom detached property. So this is exactly how we have divided our boiler finance packages.

You as the customer will have a choice of up to three new combi boilers per household size.
For smaller terraced houses we offer two boilers at around 24/25KW Output. Regardless of the new combi boiler you choose you can be assured of a minimum 7 year warranty. Prices start from £15.92 with a £500 upfront deposit. Alternatively you can start your package with no upfront deposit for just over £22 per month.

If you own a slightly larger property your options are similar. We have classed these as Semi-Detached Houses where we will install 29/30KW boilers. Again a minimum of a 7 year warranty is assured from just £16.70 per month!

For larger properties needing a 35KW boiler prices start from £17.86 per month with equal benefits as the previous packages.

If you require any additional information please feel free to give us a call on 0800 500 3103 to speak to one of our dedicated engineers. Make your choice simple… Make it Scarbrook!
