Upgrading your gas boiler
By replacing your old energy-inefficient boiler with a new condensing one, as approved by Green Deal, you will make significant savings on your gas bills. For example, if you opted for a new 94% efficient condensing boilers and your household uses as average 17252 kWh gas every year, you could shave up to £250 on an annual gas bill of £665.
A condensing boiler is a boiler that achieves high efficiency by extracting additional heat from the waste gases by condensing this water vapour to liquid water, thus recovering its latent heat of vaporization.
And don’t forget – if you are looking to move home, a new boiler will add value to your property.
Typical problems with an older boiler include:
*it doesn’t give you proper control over your heating – maybe the controls or timer aren’t flexible enough, or there is no thermostat
*it has a continuous pilot light. This is a common feature on older boilers and it wastes gas
