Find out if it is cheaper to turn off the heating or leave it on at minimum


The time to start turning on the heating at home is inevitably approaching, and more and more people are wondering how to save on bills at the end of the month in the face of rising energy prices, especially gas, which concerns us as far as radiators are concerned. Closing all the windows properly and making responsible and sensible use of the thermostat are two gestures that will help us reduce excess consumption.

Faced with the eternal doubt of whether to turn off the heating or leave it on at a constant temperature to save more, we must analyze how energy expenditure develops if we leave the radiators running all day or if we turn them off and on when convenient.

When we leave the heating on all day we achieve that in our house there is always a constant and very pleasant temperature. But what we don’t see is that there is heat that is constantly escaping through the windows, the doors… This temperature leak forces our heating system to always be working and thus consuming energy and even going the extra mile to keep grades stable.

And the same situation occurs when the heating is left on at night (in addition to the fact that we end up waking up due to excess heat in the room). By leaving the radiators running while we sleep we are consuming energy that is not necessary, since when we go to sleep in winter we bundle up and use heavier duvets.

Economic savings and reduction of emissions

Is it necessary to leave the heating on all day, even at a reasonable temperature? The answer is no, since this custom will trigger the price we pay on the gas bill. Having the heating on all day involves unnecessary energy consumption that is not comparable to the little extra effort that the system has to make to start after having been off. On the other hand, a continued use of heating will increase our carbon footprint, as we will generate much more CO2 emissions.

If, for example, what we do not want is to feel cold when we wake up in the morning or when we get home after work, there are smart thermostats with which to program the turning on of the radiators 15 minutes before getting up or going home and, thus, find the environment warm and at a comfortable temperature.
