Replacing your old inefficient boiler

Boilers account for around 55 per cent of the cost we spend in a year on energy bills, so an efficient boiler makes a big difference to your pocket!.

Replacing your old, inefficient and poorly controlled boiler, 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.

How much could you save each year?

This will depend on how old and inefficient your existing boiler is but here are some examples of what you could save.

Upgrading your old boiler with a new A-rated condensing boiler with a programmer, room thermostat and thermostatic radiator controls (TRVs) could save you up to 30% on your gas bill!


Upgrading an old boiler with a programmer and room thermostat, with a new A-rated condensing boiler with a programmer, room thermostat and thermostatic radiator controls (TRVs) could save you a considerable amount over the space of a year with the boiler paying for itself in a very short space of time.

A little about Condensing boilers -

What is a condensing boiler?

The term ‘condensing boiler’ refers to the fact that the boilers produce condense from time to time.

Condensing boilers use heat from exhaust gases that would normally be released into the atmosphere through the flue. To use this latent heat, the water vapour from the exhaust gas is turned into liquid condensate.

In order to make the most of the latent heat within the condensate, condensing boilers use a larger heat exchanger, or sometimes a secondary heat exchanger.

Due to this process, a condensing boiler is able to extract more heat from the fuel it uses than a standard efficiency boiler. It also means that less heat is lost through the flue gases
