The Benefits of Installing a New Boiler

Let’s face facts; there are many reasons why you may want to consider installing a brand new boiler.

Perhaps you’re looking to renovate your property for resale, for example, or maybe you’re tired of extortionate energy bills. You may simply want to install a more energy efficient boiler that can help you to make incremental savings, whilst also reducing the carbon footprint of your home.

Regardless, installing a new boiler is a worthwhile and rewarding endeavor that offers a number of incredible benefits. For example:

You can Access Improved Efficiency with a New Boiler

According to the Energy Saving Trust, a central heating boiler accounts for a whopping 60% of your household energy bills. 

With this in mind, installing a new boiler can make a significant difference to your monthly usage costs, particularly as most modern condensing units are A-rated and offer energy efficiency levels of 90% or more.

In contrast, older and non-condensing boilers can be G-rated and offer less than 70% efficiency, meaning that you’ll spend far more than you need to in order to heat your home. 

Overall, installing a brand new boiler can save you between £200 and £300 per year, and just think what you could do with this annual windfall!

You can Benefit from Intuitive Heating Controls

Most modern boilers come with intuitive heating controls, including TRVs and a room thermostat that enables you to set the temperature in each individual space.

Each TRV shuts off its radiator from the heating when the air around the valve reaches the desired temperate, negating the need for you to constantly monitor and adjust each thermostat.

If you’re familiar with home heating systems such as Nest, you can also use learning thermostats and dedicated mobile apps to control your new boiler from outside of the home. This means that you can turn the boiler on and off wherever you are, ensuring that it operates as efficiently as possible all year round.

You can Enjoy Quieter Boiler Operation

This may seem like a minor detail, but anyone who has ever lived with an older boiler or a conventional heating system will know that these contraptions aren’t exactly quiet.

Thanks to improved design techniques, the superior use of materials and the development of combi boilers, however, new units are significantly quieter during operation and far easier to live with. 

This can make a huge difference, particularly to people who previously slept near a water tank or where a boiler was situated on the other side of their bedroom wall.

Don’t forget that these units are far more compact too, so they can fit seamlessly into the modern home without compromising on your available space.
