Thinking about replacing your boiler? It might be a good idea when you consider how beneficial it will be in terms of lower heating costs, efficiency, improved heating control and cost savings. If you’ve been struggling with an old boiler, then perhaps now’s the time to have it replaced while the summer weather’s here, and before the colder climates arrive. In today’s post we’re going to be talking about the benefits of boiler replacement and why you should consider it.
Lower Heating Costs
Firstly, let’s look at the benefit of low heating costs. If your boiler is quite old, then a new one can not only be more efficient, but also more cost effective. You can choose a high-efficiency condensing boiler which comes with a complete set of heating controls. This in itself can help with energy saving, giving you more control over how much heat you use and how little you waste.
The good news is that most boilers you buy today are extremely energy efficient being between 88% and 90%. If you move from a fairly recent boiler that is 88% efficient, and change it to a boiler that’s 98% efficient, won’t really show you much in the way of savings. It’s only if you’re changing from a really old boiler to one of the new energy efficient boilers.
Better Heating Control
Comfort levels can be improved exponentially with better heating control, this means that rather than have a room too hot or cold, you can control the thermostat much better and have the room at an ideal temperature for you.
You won’t always want rooms heated that are not in use, or if you’re heating the room solely for guests, you can keep it low until they arrive. This helps avoid unnecessary heat in the room, keeping the energy bills low.
In the long-run, it will take time before you see the benefit of any cost savings, it’s not easy to see how long it will be before it starts to pay for itself. However, what is certain, is that you will make savings on a new boiler if you’re changing from an old one to one of the newer efficient boilers. What’s more, your boiler could add value to your property should you decide to sell in the future.
If you’re concerned about the environment, then you’ll be pleased to know that a more modern boiler can help bring down carbon dioxide emissions considerably, which means you get to make your contribution to the environment - simply by replacing your boiler.
