Autonomous heating: how to save on bills in 3 steps

Here are some tips to save on autonomous heating and lighten your bills during the cold months of the year

  save on heating THE SWITCHING ON OF THE INDEPENDENT HEATING IS APPROACHING WHICH, NEVER AS THIS YEAR, WILL RESULT IN AN INCREASE IN CONSUMPTION AND, THEREFORE, IN THE AMOUNT OF THE GAS BILLS. TO CONTRAST THIS INCREASE, IT IS NECESSARY TO IMPACT SOME SMALL BUT FUNDAMENTAL ADVICES WHICH ALLOW TO REDUCE CONSUMPTION AND, THEREFORE, SAVE ON GAS BILLS FOR THE AUTUMN AND WINTER MONTHS. HERE'S HOW TO SAVE ON HEATING IN 3 STEPS.

Saving on autonomous heating is possible . With small but fundamental expedients, in fact, there is the possibility of giving a clean cut to bills for the autumn and winter months, with significant savings. The energy crisis has caused an unprecedented increase in the cost of gas. For this reason it becomes essential to take all the necessary precautions to be able to face the heating period in the right way. Savings are within everyone's reach.

With the coldest period of the year getting closer and closer, it is necessary to organize in time. The energy crisis is leading to a significant increase in spending on electricity and gas, but there is also room for savings on heating, that's it some advices to put into practice to save on autonomous heating and face the cold period of the year without having to take into account a huge expense for heating:

3 STEPS TO SAVE ON INDEPENDENT HEATING AND CUT BILLS

There are various tricks to put into practice in order to save on autonomous heating and avoid a sting in the bill. Here are the countermeasures to activate:

Cut the cost of energy

The first move to complete is represented by the gas cost tag or, for those using an electric heating system, the electric energy . By cutting the cost of energy there is the possibility of significantly lightening the bill for the same consumption.



Due to the ongoing energy crisis, cutting the cost of energy becomes a priority. Any other measure to try to reduce the cost of bills, in fact, is canceled by an energy price that is too high. By intervening on the cost of energy, it is therefore possible to access the maximum possible savings, considering the difficult moment that the sector has been going through for more than a year now.

Locate rates gas and light right to save is, therefore, essential. Choosing the best offers it can happen, in a really simple way, by relying on the online comparison which allows you to better orient yourself among the many options available and to identify the right offer to save money. To choose the right offers it is, therefore, possible to rely on SOStariffe.it comparator per electricity and gas offers .

Just indicate an estimate of your annual consumption (the figure is shown in the bill but can also be estimated with the tool integrated in the comparator) to immediately identify the right offer to activate. Once the offer has been chosen, the user can proceed with the online activation to start using a more advantageous rate. The activation of an electricity or gas tariff takes place free of charge. It is sufficient to provide the data of the holder of the supply and the data of the supply itself (the POD code for electricity and the PDR code for gas are needed).

Maximize the energy efficiency of the house

There is another very important aspect to keep in mind to save on autonomous heating. It is about the boiler efficiency and more generally of energy efficiency of your home , a parameter that is too often underestimated but which represents a determining factor in achieving the savings goal. The speech made for the gas boiler can be extended to any electric heating system. In fact, to reduce heating costs, it is essential to increase energy efficiency as much as possible.

A highly efficient system, in fact, allows you to consume less energy for the same amount of time and usage . In this way, therefore, there is the possibility of reducing consumption, reaching the savings objectives without having to change the way in which the system is used. Efficiency also includes other add-ons. For example, you can install thermostatic valves it's a thermostat smart to better manage the operation of the heating throughout the house.

Not to be underestimated is also the thermal insulation . Any heat loss to the outside, in fact, translates into a substantial increase in heating costs. Increasing thermal insulation, avoiding drafts and heat leaks towards the outside is very important and allows the efficiency of the entire system to be kept high. With the combination of these small tricks it will be possible to use the heating efficiently and obtain good savings on the bill.

Per maximize energy efficiency it's possible take advantage of tax deductions that allow you to buy a new boiler and/or improve the thermal insulation of your home. An investment in energy efficiency will surely pay off in a short time. Choosing to improve this parameter, in fact, will allow you to easily achieve the savings objectives set for heating.

Avoid waste and use energy in the right way

The third trick to avoid excessive spending on heating concerns the how you use the system . In fact, it is essential to save money and use the heating in the right way , avoiding too high temperatures and excessive usage time. There is no need to overdo it when using heating. Instead, you need to use common sense and adjust the use of the system according to your real needs.

Among the aspects to consider is the target temperature to be achieved in the house . It is not necessary to raise the temperature too much. Exceeding 20° C in the house, in fact, involves an enormous energy expenditure. Better to set a lower temperature and pay attention to thermal insulation, perhaps wearing slightly warmer clothes at home. Reaching a 'summer' temperature in the house means taking into account a huge expense for heating.

To be evaluated is also the time of use . Using the heating for too many hours or even when it is not necessary, in fact, will result in a waste of energy and, therefore, in a completely avoidable extra expense. With use I realize, therefore, it will be possible to reduce consumption and lighten the bill. To manage heating in the right way, you need a little common sense and a lot of attention to waste.

Let us briefly summarize the measures to be put into practice to reduce the cost of autonomous heating:

  • cut the cost of energy by relying on the best offers on the Free Market
  • maximize the energy efficiency of your home, also resorting to tax deductions to reduce the investment
  • use heating in the right way, avoiding waste and choosing the right target temperature
THE NEW RULES FOR HEATING TO FIGHT THE ENERGY CRISIS

To counter the effects of the energy crisis, the new national plan for the containment of gas consumption . This plan intervenes on several levels, changing the way in which heating is used. In fact, the new rules change the heating on and off dates, cutting the period of activity of the systems by 15 days. The heaters will turn on 8 days later and turn off 7 days earlier than usual. Note that too the hours of use are reduced by 1 hour per day . The list below summarizes the new rules:

  • Zone A : the heaters turn on on 8 December and turn off on 7 March; the daily use time is 5 hours a day
  • Zone B : the heaters turn on on 8 December and turn off on 23 March; the daily use time is 7 hours a day
  • Area C: the heaters turn on on November 22nd and turn off on March 23rd; the daily usage time is 9 hours a day
  • Zone D: the heaters turn on on November 8 and turn off on April 7; the daily use time is 11 hours a day
  • Zone E: the heaters turn on on October 22 and turn off on April 7; the daily usage time is 13 hours a day
  • Zone F: there are no restrictions on the use of heating

It should also be noted that there is also a reduction of 1° C of the maximum allowed temperature which is brought from 20° C to 19° C. However, the tolerance limit of 2° C remains, which brings the real maximum ceiling to 21° C. In any case, the legislation provides for exemptions (for hospitals, schools and other types of buildings) and allows the municipalities to be able to establish derogations from the legislation in the event of periods of intense cold.

The new plan therefore sets the goal of reducing gas consumption on a national basis and on several levels. The rules aim to contain consumption without distorting the way in which heating is used. These are small changes that will try to ensure the achievement of consumption targets at a national level.
