what is heat loss

Every property has it's own individual heat loss. There are many factors that determine the level of heat loss from the type of windows you have, what your walls are constructed from  to the surrounding temperature influences outside. 

 

 Your heat loss determines how much energy is required to keep a room at the determined temperature. Therefore, the draughtier your house the greater the energy consumption.

Once your heat loss calculation has been carried out, this will determine what size gas boiler ( or heat pump) would be needed to heat your property. If the boiler that you have is greater in energy output than the maximum heat loss for your property, it will not work efficiently. Alton and Jones will always carry out a heat loss calculation as standard, but we can also offer this as a separate service.
