“Why do I need an energy-efficient boiler?”The answer to this question is very simple, especially when you realise that heating accounts for about 60 per cent of what you spend each year on energy bills! Installing a new, energy-efficient boiler will make a big difference to your costs; the exact saving will depend on how old and inefficient your existing boiler is and the type of fuel it uses, but upgrading tends to save up to £350 per year.
Your typical new boiler will come with a warranty lasting anywhere from 5-10 years. Newer, more energy-efficient boilers are mainly compact units with internal components, giving you total peace of mind that anything within the unit itself will be fully guaranteed (again saving you money on your investment).
Modern condensing boilers convert significantly more gas into heat, thereby reducing waste. Not only does this mean lower bills (as this extra heat is recovered and recycled), it also allows you to give something back to the environment by cutting down your CO2 emissions.
Your boiler may be the single most important item in your home – particularly around winter – so when it comes to a boiler replacement, it’s essential to get not only the right product but also the right installer. Your boiler is an investment, and if you choose a new, energy-efficient boiler, then over the years this investment will pay for itself. Make sure you have a service plan to check the reliability, safety and efficiency of your boiler as time goes by.
