The benefits of replacing your old boiler.
1. A warmer and more comfortable home.
Over time, older gas boilers become less efficient and can struggle to heat your home. A new modern gas boiler can create a warmer and more comfortable environment for your home.
2. Reduce your energy bills.
Boilers become less efficient the older they become, resulting in higher home heating bills. Replacing an old gas boiler with a new more efficient model will reduve the costs of your energy bills.
3. Energy efficient.
Moving to an A-rated boiler could save up to £350 pounds a year and 1500kg of carbon dioxide per year.
4. Piece of mind.
Getting a new boiler not only saves on your energy bills, it also provides piece of mind. A new boiler will work better for longer and gives you security against breakdowns, backed by our standard 7 year parts and labour manufacturers warranty.
5.Control of temperature with smart controls.
New boilers fitted with smart controls such as Hive and Nest, allow the user to set the desired temperature. You can be far more precise with how much heat is required for each area of the house, also being able to control the temperature remoteley via your smartphone, saving money and increasing comfort.
6. Make your property more attractive.
A new A-rated gas boiler will make your home more attractive and improve its efficiency rating, all our installations come with Building regulations certificates, Gas safe notification certificates and safety reports as standard.
Types of boilers
We often get asked what the difference is between different types of boilers.
Here is a guide.
Before purchasing a new boiler, it is important to know about the three main types and how they work:
Regular / Conventional
The size, type and make of boiler can all affect how much energy you use and how your home and hot water is heated – which can ultimately impact your energy bills and the smooth running of your home.
Combination or Combi Boilers
Combi boilers are the Uk’s most popular boiler type, only heating the water in your central heating system when you use it, which means they are also very cost-effective
Benefits of Combi Boilers
The benefits of a combi boiler are:
Energy efficiency is a major advantage: since you only use the hot water you need, you don’t unnecessarily heat a whole tank of water
Efficient use of space is a second advantage. A combi saves on space, as you don’t need the hot water tank, feed tank and expansion cistern that are required with some other types of boiler. So it is great if you live in a smaller house or flat.
Time-efficiency is a third advantage of the combi design: you don’t need to wait for the hot water in a tank to heat up. You get unlimited hot water whenever you need it because it’s straight from the mains.
A regular boiler sends hot water to your radiators and a hot water cylinder.
Benefits of regular boilers.
If you have a busy home environment, the system can send water to lots of taps at the same time, without the flow of water getting weaker
Having a separate hot water tank facilitates solar thermal energy storage for households with solar panels
Regular boilers typically suit:
Larger homes that have more than one bathroom
Families with a higher demand for hot water
Properties with lower mains pressure
We can also fit an electrical immersion heater to the hot water cylinder at the time of your installation, to ensure you have a
back-up, just in case your boiler breaks down.
A regular boiler is often a practical choice, and suits people / families with a higher demand for hot water, living in a larger property, and those with a lower mains pressure.
Just like a combi boiler, a system boiler produces hot water by heating water straight from the mains.
However, unlike a combi boiler, it doesn’t do this on demand.
Instead, hot water is stored in a hot water tank for you to use as needed in much the same way as with a regular boiler, the difference being that the heating occurs in the boiler itself with the system boiler, whereas it occurs in the tank with the regular boiler.
A system boiler and hot water tank is another option for families who are thinking of a traditional hot water system and regular boiler.
Benefits of System Boilers
Advantages include the fact that with a system boiler, a feed tank and expansion cistern for the hot water tank are not required.
Compatible with solar thermal energy storage
Ideal for homes with more than one bathroom, where hot water is likely to be used at the same time in different rooms
Lower space requirement than regular boilers;
Suits properties with a lower mains pressure.
