It’s that time again, the summer is ending, the autumn will pass before we know it, and then will come the winter. It is better to think ahead of time about finding more energy efficient heating solutions for your home, by replacing your old boilers with efficient new ones.
As much as 40% of Global Energy usage comes from domestic heating. According to Energy Saving Trust, boilers account for 55% of what you spend in a year on energy bills. Replacing your old boiler with a high-efficiency boiler can save you up to £310 a year and cut carbon dioxide emissions. New boilers are more efficient because they are all condensing boilers, with a bigger heat exchanger and greater energy recovery from condensing vapors.
A gas boiler is the cheapest solution and for those of you who don’t have main gas, you can save money by paying for a connection to get cheaper fuel. The right boiler to be purchased depends on the household; for a small household for instance, a combi boiler can be more efficient, while a regular boiler is a better fit for a larger household. Other products you might want to look at are heat recovery systems that can save up to 17% of energy used in heating water, and hot water cylinders to insulate water temperatures which could save you up to £45 a year.
The first step in replacing your old boiler is to find out what type of boiler you have now whether it is a combination boiler, gravity fed system with separate hot water cylinder or a high pressure system with separate hot water cylinder. Some of the most efficient solutions for your new boiler are combi boilers, high pressure boilers for large houses, and condensing boilers, which are the most fuel efficient. You can even get a green deal from the government if you decide to replace your old boiler with a solar water heating boiler.
To save up you can also find great Vailliant Gas Boilers prices ranging from £600 to £1,000. Vailliant is the second largest manufacturer in Europe which utilizes renewable energy sources and works on technological advances to make their products more environmentally friendly. Comparing Vailliant Gas combi boilers prices or other gas boilers brands, can help you save an additional hundreds of pounds.
You can compare Vailliant Gas Boilers Prices by getting a national quote from British gas and local boiler quotes and prices. With British Gas, you can actually get a £400 Scrappage Discount and Up To £270 on the Government’s Green Deal Limited Cashback Scheme.
If you have an old boiler it is probably time to replace it, for a more efficient, safe, and green way of heating your household. Find out what boiler you have and what you can replace it with in your household. Becoming environmentally aware and more cost and energy efficient is the smartest thing to do for your pockets, and our air.
