What are the Benefits of Installing a New Boiler? January 07, 2020 Whilst it's definitely not kind on your purse (at least in the short-term), replacing your boiler with a brand new energy-efficient, technologically advanced boiler can be hugely beneficial to you and your home, especially in the long term... If you're replacing your boiler and you're concerned that you might be wasting your money, take a read of this blog post to see all of the benefits of replacing your boiler... New boilers are energy efficient According to the Energy Saving Trust, heating bills are responsible for 60% of your household energy bills, so in other words, they're responsible for taking a lot of your monthly income! That's why having an energy efficient boiler is so important! The more energy efficient your boiler is, the less you'll pay on your monthly heating bills... If you installed your boiler pre-2007, there's a good chance that your boiler is a non-condensing boiler, i.e. it is not able to re-use the heat that it produces and therefore typically operates between 50-70% efficiency, drastically less efficient than modern condensing boilers that operate around 90% efficiency. Install a more efficiency boiler and reduce your monthly heating bills! New boilers work with modern technologies If you install a new boiler, you can look forward to being able to use modern technologies! For example, have you seen brands like Nest, Hive, and other brands advertising smart thermostats? If you have an old-condensing boiler, there's a good chance that your boiler will not be compatible with these smart devices, and therefore you're unable to take advantage of the additional energy-saving benefits that they offer compared to traditional thermostats! In addition, you'll also be able to make use of TRV's, which allow you to set different settings on your radiators in different rooms. New boilers are small and discrete Gone are the days where boilers need to have upstairs tanks, middle of the house cylinders and the boiler itself. Nowadays you can install combination boilers, which have all of the major components built in, helping you free up space in the rest of your house for the more important things! New boilers are also much quieter than older boilers too! Looking for a gas engineer to install a new boiler in your home in Bristol?
