Around 60% of what you spend in a year on energy bills goes on your boiler so·an efficient boiler makes a big difference on your fuel spend. A new energy-efficient A-rated boiler can save you money, as much as £300 a year.
As well as saving on your energy bills, updating your boiler to a more energy efficient model will mean improved performance, better water pressure and fewer breakdowns.
Additionally, damaged or faulty boilers can result in the release of carbon monoxide gas into your home, which can be fatal. To avoid the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, regular services and repairs to your boiler are highly recommended. Newer boilers have built in safety measures and are far less prone to carbon monoxide leaks.
Why are new boilers more efficient?
The main advantage with modern boilers is that they are all condensing boilers. All well maintained boilers burn fuel very efficiently, but lose heat energy through the hot gases escaping up the flue. A condensing boiler has a bigger heat exchanger, so it recovers more heat sending cooler gases up the flue.
Updating your boiler to a newer model can be a good investment that could save you money on household bills for years to come. Although they can seem expensive, new models are far less prone to breakdowns and maintenance problems, so updating your system could save you time and money in the long run.
