How old is your central heating boiler?
If it’s more than 10 years old, it may be time to think about replacing it with a new high efficiency model.
Modern central heating boilers are much better than the old ones. They can heat water more efficiently, meaning they use less gas or oil to do the same job. This saves energy and will save you money. In fact, if your boiler is over 10 years old, then it’s probably worth investing in a new one. In most cases the savings you make from a more efficient boiler over the years will pay for the outlay. Building regulations stipulate that if you are replacing an old boiler, the new appliance must be A-rated for energy efficiency. This means it must be at least 88% efficient (most new boilers score over 90%).
In a typical semi-detached property that uses mains gas for heating you can reduce your heating bills by around £300 per year if you upgrade from an old G-rated boiler (less than 70% efficient) to a new A-rated condensing boiler with full heating controls (e.g. timer/programmer, room thermostat and thermostatic radiator valves). The savings are even greater for larger properties and for heating systems that run on oil which is more expensive than gas.
If the boiler in your property is less than 86% efficient (most boilers over 12 years old are <86% efficient) PLUS you or somebody else in your property is receiving certain tax credits or benefits, then you may be eligible to receive a new condensing boiler, completely free of charge.
