As a homeowner there are a wide variety of things to stay on top of and your boiler is one of the most important of these. Not only does it keep your home warm and provide hot water, it also makes up a large percentage of your energy bills. Here are the top three facts we think homeowners should know about their boilers.
Know your consumption
Boilers account for 55% of the overall energy consumption of the average UK home which is equal to around £700 a year for the average family. The efficiency of your boiler can have a big impact on this figure with modern A rated condensing boilers often being as much as 30% more efficient than older, non-condensing models. So if you want to cut down on your energy usage, a new boiler is one of the most effective ways to do it.
Small changes = big savings
The temperature of your home can have a much bigger impact on your energy bills than you might expect. Turning the thermostat down just 1°C can cut as much as 10% off your bill. However, you don’t need to sit and shiver to save cash. Tricks such as zoning your central heating and smart thermostats can bring down the average daily temperature of your whole house while not sacrificing comfort when and where you need it.
A new boiler can save you money
Forking out for a new boiler might seem costly, but it can end up saving you money both in the short term and the long term. On average, switching to a modern condensing boiler saves the average household around £300 a year.
