If your boiler is over 10 years old it will probably not be performing as energy efficiently as it should be and could be costing you more money to run. Installing a new boiler can be costly and with new laws stating that all newly installed boilers have to be A rated if supplied by gas, some people may need to have additional changes made to their heating system.
High efficiency boilers work by extracting more heat from the flue gas. This means less heat excapes from the flue and so less fuel is used. Replacing a old boiler with a high efficiency one is likely to reduce your heating bills by as much as 30%.
Combi boilers do not use a hot water cylinder as the water is heated instantly rather than being held in the cylinder. They are slightly more expensive than regular boilers but you gain extra space by removing the hot water cylinder and water storage taks in the roof.
To help further reduce the amount of energy you use through your boiler, installing renewable energy solutions such as solar, photovoltaics or wood stoves and biomass can help to keep your bills down in the long term. However there is a significant initial investment, but help may be available through the Green Deal.
If you are living in a council or housing association property, contact them first before applying for ECO or a Green Deal.
