    Why replace your boiler?

    A boiler is an integral part of the heating system and consumes a major part of utility bill. Indeed boilers account for 60-70% of energy bill consumption.
    Boilers are graded on their efficiency from A- rated most efficient to G-rated least efficient one. Older non-condensing boilers are approximately 30% less energy efficient than modern condensing boilers. They regulate, retain and produce heat more efficiently and operate on better heating controls. Higher efficiency also results in lower carbon emissions as compared to older ones.
