What Would Happen If We Didn’t Have Boilers or Central Heating?
Happy new year from everybody at PJ Bryer Plumbing and Heating! We hope the new year brings you all endless joy, new experiences, and a fantastic new start for you all! In the new year! The new year is a fantastic opportunity to begin an improved lifestyle by starting things new to better ourselves or even to leave behind things that made a negative impact on our lives. This is why in January many people join the gym, eat healthier, start a new hobby, choose a new career path, start playing a new sport, and much more! It is also why people give up smoking, bad habits, or take on the challenge of ‘Dry January’, which consists of a whole month of not drinking any alcohol at all. Although the new year is a fantastic time of year and excuse to make lifestyle changes, there are some things in our lives that cannot simply be changed which can cause us stress. One of the most significant is the cold winter weather that still makes an impact on our lives and our lifestyles, which is why at this time of year we all need to have an efficient boiler and central heating system in our homes to keep us warm. Without a boiler and central heating system, our lifestyle would be much more difficult during winter, but what would it actually be like? In this blog, we look into what it would be like without central heating or a boiler, and we should be so appreciative.
We Would Have to Rely On Other Heat Sources
Wrapping up under a blanket with the fire on during the winter sure is relaxing, but surely we wouldn’t find as much pleasure in it if it was our only option to remain warm? Without central heating in our homes, we would have to solely rely on traditional methods of staying warm such as duvets, blankets, and thicker clothing. Our homes would only be heated from insulation inside of our windows, our roof, and walls, which would offer no way near as much warmth as central heating would, which is why it is so important for our homes to be provided with an efficient central heating system throughout to the entire of the winter. Relying on blankets wouldn’t be anywhere near as effective as central heating and fires would also increase risk in your home of causing a dangerous fire. Using gas or electric fires would also rapidly increase energy bills and be extremely harmful to the environment. Although central heating or boiler installations may be expensive at the time, they will significantly reduce heating bills and be much more efficient than other heating methods. Nobody wants to walk into a cold home and make themselves warm after a day in the cold or coming home from work. Central heating systems are key to reducing stress levels as being cold can lead to you being agitated and stressed.
No Hot Showers
Imagine not being able to have a hot shower during the winter? Without an efficient boiler, hot showers would be impossible during the winter as there would be no consistent flow of hot water, meaning the only way of showering would be to shower in cold water, which would be unpleasant, especially with a cold home without central heating. To clean in hot water, we would have to boil water and wait for it to cool, which would be a long and risky process. Accidentally touching boiling water could easily scald skin, leading to nasty or even devastating skin injuries. Hot water isn’t necessarily required for survival, however, to remain clean and for our own enjoyment, hot water is required in our lives. Cold showers may be refreshing during the summer, however, during the winter when it is freezing outside, they are the complete opposite. To conclude, if we did not have boilers, we wouldn’t have the pleasure of jumping into a hot bath or shower after a stressful day or spending time out in the cold, which in modern-day is normal and a part of life. Without a boiler, cleaning in hot or warm water would be difficult or wouldn’t happen at all.
Clothes Would Not Be Cleaned As Efficiently
Most modern washing machines operate using hot water to efficiently clean different washing loads or types of clothing. With some loads or clothing types, cold washes cannot clean clothes as efficiently as hot washes can. This could lead to clothes not cleaning as efficiently, meaning your clothing, bedsheets, pillowcases, and other items that go in your tumble dryer could remain stained, smelling bad, or in bad condition. This would mean once your clothes or fabrics were out of reasonable condition, they would then have to be replaced, which would cost you additional money to the money that you would already have to spend running your washing machine. Hot water isn’t just required for cleaning, it is also vital for removing stains and cleaning clothing. This is also exactly the same for cleaning dishes. Hot water is required to remove germs from plates and cutlery. Without hot water, dishes would still potentially have germs or stains on them even after being cleaned. Like with hot baths, if we did not have boilers, kettles would be our only source of hot water and we would have to clean our clothes and dishes from hot kettle water, which again could potentially damage dishes or clothing.

Your boiler and central heating system is perhaps the most important system within your home, be it a combi, system, or conventional boiler. Throughout the year and not just during the winter; it is highly important that your boiler is fully functioning at all times, so your family or housemates can live an efficient and healthy lifestyle in warmth with hot water.
