Deciding on the ideal boiler for your home.

Heating accounts for roughly 60 % of your expenditure every year on energy bills, so an reliable boiler will make a appreciable difference.

Modern boilers are a lot more efficient for many reasons, but their primary appeal is that they are all condensing boilers. All well-managed boilers burn their fuel efficiently, however they unavoidably waste some energy in the hot gases that escape up the flue. A condensing boiler boasts a larger heat exchanger, therefore it recovers more heat, directs cooler gases up the flue and is more efficient.

Sometimes the flue gases get so cool that the water vapour within the gas condenses out (hence the name), and additional energy is brought back from the condensing vapour.

What do I need to take into consideration when replacing my boiler?

If it is the right time to change your boiler, you ought to choose which type of boiler is appropriate for you. Here are various factors to contemplate:
Fuel type

If you have got mains gas, a gas boiler is in all likelihood going to represent the lowest priced heating choice. Our fuel prices as of March 2016 suggest that an oil heating system is at this time a more affordable option, nonetheless historically oil heating has been more costly.

If you don’t have a gas supply to your household, it might possibly be worth taking into consideration aform of low carbon heating such as a heat pump or biomass. Along with the renewable heat incentive these could be cheaper overall.

As an alternative you might wish to get a gas connection to your dwelling. The company that owns and manages the gas network within your area may be able to help with the cost of buying a new connection, and it may perhaps even be fully funded.

Boiler type

Most older gas and oil boilers are normal boilers which may have a standalone hot water cylinder to store hot water, rather than providing it straight from the boiler. When you replace your boiler you are able to buy a new regular boiler, and retain your hot water cylinder, or purchase a combi boiler that doesn't need a cylinder.

A typical boiler is far more reliable compared to a combi at generating hot water from the outset, but then some heat is displaced from the hot water cylinder, so a combi might be more effective overall.

Your hot water usage

Large families making use of a large amount of hot water are likely to be better off with a regular boiler, as opposed to smaller families using less could be better off using a combi boiler.

Space in your home

Combi boilers don’t need to have hot water cylinders, and so need less space in your household.

Compatibility with solar water heating

If you’re thinking about installing solar water heating, it’s noteworthy that lots of combi boilers aren't compatible with this heating system orcan't use it so efficiently.
