Topic - A couple of questions about central heating

aln - on 22 Jan 2013
My flat has radiators running off the combi boiler, controlled by a thermostat in the hall, opposite a radiator which is permanently on. If I want to stop my pipes freezing when I'm out, will this one radiator be enough to do that. Or do I have to have them all turned on?
Also, when I'm at home and trying to stay warm while using as little fuel as possible, my instinct is to have all the internal doors closed, use draught excluders et. Yet last year when the system was getting an annual service, the gas man told me the system actually works more efficiently if the doors are left slightly ajar. This seems counter intuitive. Any experts out there who can shed light on this?
BTW I have double glazing and cavity wall insulation already.
