SPEND YOUR SAVINGS MONEY ON SOME OTHER NICE THINGS

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.

Savings will vary depending on the size and thermal performance of your home. The costs for replacing a boiler will vary, but a straightforward gas boiler replacement will typically cost around £2,300 excluding radiators.

WHY ARE NEW BOILERS MORE EFFICIENT, AND ECO-FRIENDLY?

Modern boilers are more efficient for several reasons, but their main advantage is that they are all condensing boilers. All well-maintained boilers burn their fuel very efficiently, but they inevitably lose some heat in the hot gases that escape up the flue. A condensing boiler has a bigger heat exchanger, so it recovers more heat, sends cooler gases up the flue and is more efficient.

Sometimes the flue gases get so cool that the water vapour in the gas condenses out (hence the name). When this happens, even more energy is recovered from the condensing vapour, and the efficiency gets higher still.

THE RIGHT FUEL

If you have mains gas, then a gas boiler is usually the cheapest heating system for you.

If you don’t have a gas supply to your home, it might be worth looking into getting a gas connection. If there is no gas pipe near your home then this may not be an option, but if it's available just round the corner then it might be worth paying for a new connection. The company that owns and operates the gas network in your area may be able to help with the cost of getting a new connection, and it may even be fully funded.

To discuss a new gas connection, and to find out if you can obtain help towards all or part of the cost, contact the company that owns the gas network in your area.

THE RIGHT BOILER

Most old gas and oil boilers are regular boilers - they have a separate hot water cylinder to store hot water, rather than providing it directly from the boiler. When you replace your boiler you have a choice of buying a new regular boiler, and keeping your hot water cylinder, or buying a combi boiler that doesn't need a cylinder.

A regular boiler is more efficient than a combi at producing hot water in the first place, but then some heat is lost from the hot water cylinder, so a combi may be more efficient overall. The best option for you will depend on a number of factors:

  • How much hot water do you use? A large family using lots of hot water could be better off with a regular boiler – a smaller household using less may be better off with a combi.
  • Are you short of space? A combi boiler doesn’t need a hot water cylinder, and so needs less space.
  • Are you thinking of installing solar water heating? Many combis are not compatible with solar water heating or cannot use it so effectively.

SAVINGS, LOTS OF THEM!

SEEMS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE? WRONG.

Based on a saving of 25% gas usage, the Energy Saving Trust estimates the average saving per household on energy bills after installing a new boiler to be £310.
