A-rated boilers are the most energy-efficient boilers available on the market, so if you want to save money on fuel bills and lower your carbon footprint, an A-rated boiler is a good choice.
Save money with an A-rated boiler
We’re all on a budget, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort. A high-quality boiler will ensure your home is warm and cosy all year round, while also helping you save money in the long run.
A boiler’s efficiency rating is determined by its ability to convert fuel into energy without waste. For example an ‘A’ rated boiler with 90%+ efficiency will only waste a maximum of 10% when heating your home and using hot water for showers and baths. So if you have an older model with a lower efficiency rating, upgrading could help you save hundreds of pounds a year on gas bills – the savings really add up over time!
How to choose the most energy-efficient boiler?
There are a few things to consider when choosing the right boiler for your home. First, you need to make sure that it’s big enough for your home – the boiler requirement for a detached house in Chelmsford would be completely different to that of a flat in Luton, for example. A unit with too much capacity will simply create heat loss and wouldn’t be as energy efficient as one of a smaller size which uses the same amount of fuel.
When choosing a new boiler, check its energy efficiency rating (or ‘EER’ on manufacturer’s brochures) and find out how much it will cost you to run per year in order to calculate if it is worth paying extra for more efficient models.
Boiler efficiency ratings explained
You may have seen a boiler’s efficiency rating advertised. These are expressed as SEDBUK ratings, and they can be very useful when comparing boilers.
The letters SEDBUK stand for Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boiler in the UK, and they show how much fuel a boiler needs to do its job. The higher the number, the more efficient your new boiler will be.
Boilers get a rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient), and sometimes these ratings are also expressed as a percentage, with A-rated boilers being of a 90% efficiency and above – anything rated B or above is considered highly efficient.
If you’re hoping to save money on heating costs, then choosing a more efficient model is bound to make an impact.
