The boiler in your home will probably be generating 60% of your annual energy expense, so you need to make sure it’s efficient and you’re not wasting money every month. Especially in the winter you need to ensure your home will remain heated for little cost.
Once you’ve installed a new boiler it’ll be with you for between 12 and 15 years, so it’s essential you make the right choice. Unfortunately your boiler is likely to breakdown during the winter and you’ll need to call out an engineer to make repairs, so ensure you take boiler insurance as well.
An efficient boiler will save you up to £300 a year on your energy bills and will cut the amount of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere. So not only will you have financial savings, but you’ll also reduce your carbon footprint.
When it comes to selecting your new boiler there are a few options to consider. One of the most popular types is the combination boiler. Combination boilers don’t need storage tanks as water is heated directly from the mains. So whenever you need hot water, just simply turn on the tap. Combination boilers are small too and will fit on the kitchen or bathroom wall or in a cupboard.
Biomass boilers are the environmentally friendly option, which are growing in popularity. Biomass boilers burn renewable products such as waste, agricultural crops and wood. This means it’ll be cheaper to run than a normal boiler as these products are cheaper than gas and electricity.
Other types of boilers include sealed system boilers and open vent boilers. You may find an older property fitted with one of these two, in which case you should replace with an A-rated efficient combi.
