It’s little wonder in areas such as Edmonton, Alberta that highly qualified plumbers are in such high demand. Temperatures in the height of summer struggle up to 15/18 C on a good day, and plummet to minus double figures in the winter. Ensuring your heating system is not only working, but working efficiently takes up much of your plumber’s daily activity.
With the worldwide concern over global warming, and energy costs forever creeping upwards, obtaining the most effective heating system for your home while keeping energy costs down is of prime concern for all. Many companies are more than happy to visit and check your particular system, while suggesting ways the system can be upgraded to make it more cost effective.
One of the easiest ways to take control of your heating requirements is to ask your local plumber about the range of programmable thermostats. Instead of relying solely on your boiler’s on/off timer, programmable thermostats or Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs) can be fitted to the system in every room. Using thermostatic radiator valves the temperature in each room can be set to the level you want, when you want it.
