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.
