Politicians will say that the economy is picking up and that the future is rosy, but will it have any impact on your bank account? Will it stop soaring energy bills?
Instead of relying on the government to bring down the cost of your bills, you have the chance to act and save hundreds of pounds every year by switching to an energy-efficient boiler – or even just through regular servicing.
Boilers account for about 55% of annual energy bills, so an energy-efficient boiler can make a big difference. Recent research has shown that, depending on the size of your house and other energy saving measures you’ve already put in place, replacing an old gas boiler with an A-rated efficient boiler and improving heating controls could save you up to £490 a year in bills. It’ll also cut your home’s carbon dioxide emissions, so you’ll be doing your bit for the environment too.
So what makes the difference? Here’s the science part.
Older boilers lose heat as hot gases escape up the flue. New condensing boilers have bigger heat exchangers so gases are cooler. These gases get so cool that water vapours condense and are recovered for future use.
There are a range of different boilers to choose from, depending on your budget and the size of home. We have more than 13 years’ experience in installing, servicing and repairing central heating systems, and are experts in boilers. We work with the latest systems provided by Vokera, Glow-Worm, Vaillant and many more.
And because these new types of boilers are becoming the norm, it means service costs are kept low. We now offer servicing from just £49.
Servicing your boiler is almost as important as choosing the right one to install. As boilers age, the less efficient they become. Minor faults can develop into major, costly problems. Boilers that aren’t properly installed, maintained or ventilated can also produce carbon monoxide, which can kill.
Our Gas Safe registered engineers can provide routine servicing of any existing system to ensure it operates at the right efficiency, keeping your energy bills low and preventing costly problems from arising.
