The Benefits of Installing a New Boiler

Installing a new boiler can be a costly endeavor, even if you get us to install it. Although we’re vastly cheaper than the competition, it’s still a big decision, especially if your current boiler is still functional.

Most people choose to install a new boiler in order to save money on energy costs, and this is an incredibly wise decision. In many situations, the previous boiler was so inefficient that the cost of the new boiler is recouped in heating bill savings within just 3-4 years. Every saving on top of that is just a bonus.

The best way to check the energy efficiency of your current boiler is to check the energy rating. This is a single letter, from G for the least efficient boilers to A for the most efficient.  An A-rated boiler must be at least 88% efficient, although there are plenty of models that achieve even greater efficiency. A G-rated boiler could achieve as little as 50% efficiency.

You don’t need to be a mathematician to work out how much money you could save if you upgrade a 50% efficient boiler to an 88% efficient boiler. It will slash your heating bill by 38%. That’s an absolutely incredible saving, especially in the winter when it will really represent a large amount of money.

Of course there are many other reasons to get a new boiler, not just the financial implications. It will also give you the peace of mind that your boiler is extremely unlikely to simply stop working, and if it does it will still be under warranty.

It will also make your home warmer, more comfortable, and just generally a much more pleasant place to spend time. This is in addition to the environmental benefits of using a more efficient boiler. It will reduce your carbon dioxide footprint, which can be very important to those who have an interest in green issues, and those with a social conscience in general.

You should also be aware that when you go to sell your home, potential buyers will likely be very interested in the boiler for the aforementioned reasons. A good boiler will help your house move off the market faster. It may even help you get a better price.

    Is
    getting a new boiler more energy efficient or not?

    • Boilers account for around 55 per cent of what you spend in a year on energy bills, so an efficient boiler makes a big difference.

      Replacing an old gas boiler with no controls, with an A-rated high-efficiency condensing boiler and full set of heating controls will significantly cut your home’s carbon dioxide emissions – and could save you as much as £305 a year.

    What is a gas heating system?

    • Gas combination boilers heat water directly from the mains whenever you need it. They don’t require hot water cylinders and are suitable for homes without multiple bathrooms (such as flats and small houses).

    Will
    installing a new boiler save heating bills?

    • Your boiler is at the heart of your home and
      is a complicated piece of machinery.

      Consequently new boilers aren’t cheap and prices vary greatly based on the
      different brands, sizes and types available. Typically new boiler prices
      range from close to £500 all the way to £2,500, so it’s important to get all
      the facts before you decide to buy a replacement boiler.

      However, it is worth noting that boiler installation costs and boiler
      replacement costs are often compensated by the savings you make thanks to
      your new, more energy efficient boiler. After all, it is estimated that
      roughly half of what you spend on energy every year is down to your boiler.
