Leon York Heating - #BoilerSwitchOnWeek

Things to do before switching on your heating ...

The last few weeks we have felt the temperatures begin to drop and now we welcome #BoilerSwitchOnWeek and with temperatures set to drop further still, it’s worth doing everything in your power to up the energy efficiency of your household before you flick the switch. 

Below are five simple things you can do to cut your energy bills before you crank the heating into overdrive...


1. Get your boiler serviced

Boilers account for around 55% of our yearly energy spend, so it’s well worth making sure yours is ship-shape and ready for battle before we hit the colder months.  Not only does a full service help your boiler run as efficiently as possible to save on heating costs, it also future-proofs your system for the winter ahead. There’s nothing quite as stressful as having your heating go kaput in the middle of a big freeze, and many central heating issues often develop from minor, fixable faults. Getting a service helps spot those small problems that could turn into major ones – potentially saving you thousands of pounds and an awful lot of shivering.


2. Go draught hunting

Helping you stay Gas Safe this Gas Safety Week (16th - 22nd September 2019)

In support of Gas Safety Week (16-22 September 2019), Leon York Heating are participating in Gas Safety Week 2019 to inform the public of gas safety issues and to remind everyone of the importance of having an annual gas safety check by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

This Gas Safety Week we are informing the public of a wide range of gas safety matters throughout the week. This includes how to help your vulnerable loved ones to stay gas safe, what to do if you suspect your gas engineer is an illegal fitter, and advise not to DIY when it comes to gas and
leave it to the expert engineers from the Gas Safe Register.

Gas appliances that have not properly been maintained can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Carbon monoxide is known as the ‘silent killer’ because you can’t see, smell or taste it. Therefore, it is highly important to ...

Leon York Heating - Gas Safety Week 2018

Helping you stay Gas Safe this Gas Safety Week (17-23 September 2018)

“It is our job to make sure that people’s gas appliances are installed properly, operating safely and running efficiently. In some instances, people do not know the signs and symptoms of faulty gas appliances and carbon monoxide poisoning. Because of this, we are supporting Gas Safety Week in order to alert the public of the seriousness that is unsafe gas appliances and how they can keep themselves and their families safe.”


Gas appliances that have not been properly installed and maintained can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. 

Carbon monoxide is known as the ‘silent killer’ because you can’t see, smell or taste it. Therefore, it is highly important to have your gas appliances checked by an engineer who is on the Gas Safe® Register.

Jonathan Samuel, chief executive for Gas Safe® Register, said: “Unsafe gas appliances can be fatal, and not being aware of these dangers can cause you and your family harm. This Gas Safety Week we have the support of Leon York Heating and by working together we can keep the public informed of gas safety and help reduce the risk of dangerous gas appliances across the UK.”

Leon York Heating - Free Quotes!

We offer FREE Quotes throughout Leicestershire, Warwickshire & Nottingham

At Leon York Heating, we don't offer a one price fits all when it comes to quoting for a new boiler* or central heating system as homes and properties can have various differences.


From the size of the property to the number of rooms that require some works to the age of the current central heating system, there can be numerous things to take into consideration.


Some central heating upgrades and boiler swaps may take relatively little time.

For example, if it is a simple process of a straight swap compared to those that have tanks, old systems and need for a change around, it would never be fair to offer the 'average' as this would ensure a large variation of over / under quoting for all involved.
