Reduce your household energy bills with a new boiler. Watch your gas bill shrink and save a possible £350 annually.
You can earn money, save it or steal it. You can save a considerable amount of money by tweaking your heating system, here are some of the Prime Time Boilers recommended, easiest and fastest ways to achieve that goal:
Replace your ancient boiler
Old isn’t gold when it comes to boilers. Your twenty-year old boiler may well be the most reliable household appliance you’ve ever bought but just because it’s not having regular breakdowns, doesn’t mean it’s not costing you a small fortune.
According to the Energy Saving Trust, 55% of your annual energy bills are spent on heating – so the wastage an inefficient boiler could be causing is not to be underestimated. It’ll be bleeding you dry, twice as fast as you’re bleeding radiators.
If your boiler is over 10 years old, look into its efficiency – essentially how much energy it’s actually making use of and turning into heat and hot water for your house. You’re likely to be shocked. By making an appointment with one of our heating experts, they will talk you through how you can upgrade to a new modern combi boiler and save you between 20-35% on your gas bills.
If you’re harbouring a relic from another time in your airing cupboard and upkeeping a boiler that’s over 15 years old and likely G rated (running under 70% efficiency) then take a look at the potential annual savings below.
With most new combi boilers running at a minimum of 92% efficiency, it’s easy to see where your savings are coming from. You’ll be saving a monthly amount that won’t go unnoticed.
It’s worth noting that these savings are based on combi boiler switches and that larger family households with more than one bathroom and an unquenchable thirst for hot water will likely be better off with regular boiler, that won’t need to consistently heat water on demand – an inefficiency like that would soon cancel out those savings.
Get smart, with a Hive thermostat
Taking total control over your home heating is a guaranteed way to reduce gas bills and modern smart Hive thermostats allow you the ease of control from your phone. If control over when and where your heating is on in your home isn’t something you’re regularly aware of, there’s a good chance that you can shave a hefty chunk off your monthly gas bill just by installing a smart thermostat – and making use of it, of course.
Isn’t a smart thermostat just a gimmick?
Fun as it may be to flick your boiler on and off whilst you’re in the queue at Gregg’s, the uses of a smart thermostat go beyond novelty. Just buying one and having its corresponding app installed on your phone will make you considerably more aware of how the energy in your home is being used. You’ll be able to make sure your boiler isn’t working away in an empty house, have it come on just before you’re due home from work or reduce the temperature in a particular room where an unloved relative resides.
New boilers, fitted fast.
