If your existing boiler is 15 years older and is unreliable or needs updating, replace it with one that is modern, energy-efficient and correctly sized.

Modern condensing boilers are the most efficient, with an average seasonal efficiency of 85%.

You could cut your heating bill by 30%

They are more expensive than other types of boilers, but you should get your investment back in just a few years.

The next best is a high-efficiency, fan assisted boiler, which runs at 72% average seasonal efficiency.

Both types are available as conventional or combination types.


Cost : 300 over the cost of a normal boiler
Saving : 100 - 120 per year
Cost Recovered: 2-3 years

Along with saving money, modern boilers do not adversely affect the environment like out-dated models, as they use less energy.
