Move to a Condensing Boiler and Save Money
Many people have a boiler that is over 12 years old and if this is the case then it is highly likely that it is not a condensing boiler. If this is the case then now is the time to consider a boiler replacement. The reason for this is because your old boiler won’t benefit from condensing technology but they are also highly inefficient and that is caused by corrosion as a result of regular use and thermal stresses within the boiler. Furthermore, if your boiler has not had an annual service then it is highly likely that it is likely to fail, so if you want to save money it might be time to consider a boiler replacement quote and book your new boiler installation.
Reduce Your Energy Bills
Older boilers that are non-condensing offered an efficiency of around 85% but this can drop down through the years which means it could be running at around 50% efficiency. What this means is that for every £100 you spend on bills you are spending up to £50 too much because the energy that your boiler uses is being wasted. However, new boilers are highly efficient and offer more than 90% efficiency as well as the ability to take advantage of smart controls to help increase efficiency. In fact, some boilers now offer efficiency as high as 98%. So, if you have an old boiler then you might want to think about having it replaced, especially as there are 0% finance boilers available to take advantage of.
Boiler Repairs Are No Longer Cost-Effective
Whenever your boiler breaks down, it’s fair to say that it can turn your house upside down, making you realise how important it really is, especially if you have a family! Central heating and hot water are a necessity and are an absolute must for anyone, particularly during the cold winter months. If your boiler breaks down once then sure, it’s probably worth avoiding a boiler replacement and opting for a repair but if it continues to break down, it’s really not worth paying out to have it repaired time after time. With multiple repairs come multiple costs and it then makes no sense to have it repaired at all. So, it’s possible to arrange a boiler replacement in a matter of days and that can help you to avoid spending out big money on boiler repairs.
If you have been spending money on repairs then it is time to consider your finances and how much money you have spent on boiler repairs in recent times. If you have spent hundreds of pounds each time then that is going to amount to more than the cost of a new boiler and if it doesn’t then it will eventually. Therefore, now could be the time to consider boiler replacement. So, if you are spending money on fuel that is being wasted as well as a boiler that needs repairs then you are probably wasting a considerable amount of money. However, if you make the switch and choose to replace your boiler you will be covered by the manufacturer warranty and you won’t be paying repair costs. Furthermore, you will be saving money on your bills, all of which adds up to a significant saving.
