    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.
    Benefits:
    • Save up to £270 annually on your energy bills.
    • lower carbon emissions

    The process :

    If you decide on replacing your old boiler, consider the following.
    1. Fuel type:
    The boiler options differ on the source of fuel. Mains gas is the cheapest option but for non-mains oil, LPG, coal or other fuel can be used depending on your requirement.

    2. Types of boiler:
    Various boiler types are available in the market system, condensing and combination boilers. Condensing boilers are more efficient and re-use most of the wasted flue heat to produce energy. Some grants are available through which eligible residents can replace their old boiler to brand new A-rated condensing one at no cost. Whichever boiler type you opt for ensure energy efficiency is the central aspect of the decision. Ensuring efficiency not only saves carbon but also saves you money!

    3. Installation safety:
    Make sure that you are going with certified installers ‘Gas safe’ for LPG & gas and ‘OFTEC’ for oil boilers. It offers a guarantee that the installed boiler fulfills building regulations. It is always good to do a market study and ensure customer reviews before making a choice.

    How does oil fired boilers work?

    Oil fired boilers use controlled ignition of the fuel that is required to heat water. The key components involved are combustion chamber, burner, controls and heat exchanger. The burner mixes oxygen and the fuel collectively and offers a platform for ignition with the support of ignition device. The ignition or combustion takes place in the […]

    Oil condensing boilers – Replace existing old with new ‘A’ rated boilers

    Oil boilers are equally essential for non-mains area and often installed in households located at countryside. It offers best alternative than other fuel types in non-mains. Approximately 1.5 million households in UK are using oil boilers and kerosene as a fuel for it. Under ECO (Energy Company Obligation), free oil boiler replacement is available to […]

    LPG/Oil Condensing Boilers – Heat Non-mains Household

    UK’s household network is almost connected to core gas network to heat hot water and their homes. But few rural areas are off to gas network where LPG, solid fuel, electricity and oil creates great alternatives. A solid fuel is a lot expensive hence; most of the people go for LPG or oil boilers. Advantages […]

    How to recognize whether property contains cavity wall?

    A cavity is a gap in-between two layers of wall and approximates 35% of heat loss occurs due to it. Previously it was intended to prevent moisture caused due to rainfall from the outer layer to inner layer of brickwork.  Cavity wall insulation is the method to restrain fuel deficiency and emission of toxic carbon […]

    Cavity Wall Insulation Procedure

    First of all, a survey is carried out and confirms that whether a building is suitable for cavity wall insulation. It may involve a test of drilling few holes into an outer brick structure. It inspects whether the cavity is clear of any waste and has adequate width to spread insulation material evenly. While starting […]
