Ways a New Boiler Can Drastically Cut Your Energy Bills

Discover how upgrading to a new A+ grade condensing boiler can save you up to 30% on energy bills, potentially saving you around £580* per year. Modern boilers run at 90% efficiency or more, while older ones may be costing you more than you realise.

You can opt to repair, service, and maintain your current boiler with Tyne and Wear Heating to ensure it operates efficiently. Regular servicing extends its lifespan and reduces unexpected repair costs. However, servicing alone won’t boost its efficiency. Consider a care plan to evenly spread the maintenance costs and prevent unexpected expenses.


How Can I Tell If My Current Boiler Is Effective?

To determine if your current boiler is effective, follow these steps:

1. Check the Energy Efficiency Rating:

Understand the energy efficiency ratings provided by systems like ERP and SEDBUK 2009.

Evaluate the A-G grade energy ratings to determine your boiler’s efficiency level, considering:

A: 90% efficiency or more (typically for modern condenser boilers).

G: Below 70% efficiency.

2. Assess the Boiler Efficiency Percentage:

Determine your boiler’s efficiency percentage, with A-rated boilers being the most efficient at 90% or more.

Note that G-rated boilers are typically around 65% efficient.

Consider upgrading to a condensing boiler rated A+++, known for its potential to save up to 30% on energy bills and use 20-30% less electricity than standard boilers.

3. Analyse Lifetime Energy Consumption:

Understand that ErP ratings take into account a boiler’s lifetime energy use and efficiency during operation.

Keep in mind that all new boilers come with an A rating, ensuring a certain level of energy efficiency from the start.

By following these steps and understanding the energy efficiency ratings and percentages, you can effectively determine the effectiveness of your current boiler and make informed decisions about potential upgrades or replacements.


What Can Influence Your Energy Costs?

The Increasing Cost Of Fuel 

Fuel prices are going up, meaning higher energy bills for everyone. If you’ve seen your bills rise, it could mean your boiler isn’t working as well, costing you extra money each year. Getting a new, high-efficiency boiler could save you 20-30% on bills and protect you from future price hikes. But, the amount you save depends on a few things, not just your boiler’s efficiency.

The Size Of Your Property

The bigger your property, the more your boiler has to work to heat the larger space, leading to higher energy costs.

Your Energy Tariff

Another significant factor influencing your energy costs is your tariff. If you haven’t switched energy providers recently, you might not be getting the most cost-effective deal. It’s advisable to explore your options and consider if there’s a better offer available for you.

The Insulation In Your Property

The insulation in your home significantly affects your energy costs. Poor insulation means your boiler must work harder to maintain warmth, as more heat escapes.


Solutions To Combat The Energy Crisis

Switching to energy-efficient boilers like condensing or system boilers helps fight the energy crisis. These boilers use less fuel and cut down on carbon emissions. Investing in renewable energy sources, such as solar water heating systems, also makes a big impact.

People can save money and reduce their carbon footprint at the same time.

Encouraging households to upgrade old boilers is vital for energy saving. Governments can support this by offering grants or tax incentives for installing high-efficiency heating systems.

Proper insulation and using thermostats wisely keep homes warm without wasting energy. Actions like these help tackle the global energy crisis head-on.

How a New Boiler Can Help Lower Your Energy Bills

Upgrading to a new boiler can significantly reduce your energy consumption and lower your energy bills, saving you money in the long run. Read on to discover the benefits of making the switch.

Your energy bill can be confusing. It includes the cost of heating your home, providing hot water, and powering all your appliances. Most homes use a boiler for this. The price you pay depends on how much gas or electricity you use and the tariff rates from energy providers.

Old boilers work harder to heat your home which costs more money. They might waste fuel too. New high-efficiency boilers do a better job using less energy. This means they heat your house quicker and use less gas or electricity, saving you money on bills each month.

Keep an eye on how much hot water you use as well; it affects your bill. If everyone in the household takes long showers or if the hot water cylinder isn’t insulated, costs go up. Fitting a new combi boiler can make water hotter faster without needing so much energy.

How a new boiler can lower energy consumption

Old boilers work less efficiently, using more gas to heat your home. A new boiler, especially a condensing one, turns more of the fuel it uses into heat. This means it needs less fuel and saves you money.

Newer models also have better controls. You can adjust your heating to match exactly when and where you need warmth. This cuts down on waste.

Energy-efficient boilers use the latest technology to reduce carbon emissions too. They fit well with green energy policies aiming for zero carbon targets. Plus, if you choose a combi boiler, you avoid heating unused hot water; it heats up only what’s needed at the tap or shower.
