Invest In An Energy Efficient Boiler

There is no better time than now to invest in an energy efficient boiler. With energy prices increasing and winter weather never ceasing, it would behoove you greatly to invest in a quality boiler. Why? For numerous reasons, all of which we at Plumbing On-Tap Worthing want to review today!

Why You Should Invest In An Energy Efficient Boiler In Worthing

Contemporary, high-efficiency boilers utilize modulation technology. This technology lets the boiler adjust its firing rate. Basically, it can tweak itself the way you might tweak a stove. This differs with older boilers, which always run at “full boil” or don’t run at all. Learn more about the latest condensing boilers.

Imagine being forced to drive a car at only one speed. It would probably make life much harder for you. It would also cause the car to run very inefficiently. Likewise, old boilers run much less efficiently because they’re forced to function in stringent way.

Because a high-efficiency boiler can tweak itself, it can adjust its temperature based on outdoor conditions. This allows it to produce the ideal temperature without creating any extra, unnecessary heat.

This of course leads to increased savings. According to estimates, in fact, you could potentially save up to £233 per year by simply having a new, more energy-efficient boiler installed by one of our Worthing plumbers.

Here are additional reasons why you should consider a new energy efficiency boiler:

  • Their improved construction allows them to operate much more quietly than older boilers, which are admittedly much, much louder.
  • They tend to be significantly smaller than their older siblings. This can help free up valuable house space. They can also be installed in tighter spots.
  • They carry considerably higher efficiency ratings around 90% and higher.
  • The very best boilers that we have in stock can even bring down your home’s CO2 levels! This of course is important for health reasons!

    Why do we need an energy efficient boiler?

    • Typically, the “as new” efficiency of an oil or gas boiler over 15 years old would have been less than 80%. It’s present efficiency today, due to wear and tear is unlikely to be greater than 70%.

      The current range of boilers available today will have efficiencies greater than 90%. This represents an operational improvement in efficiency of up to 20 percentage points

      Increasing the operational efficiency of your boiler by this amount represents an actual fuel saving of more than 25%. In other words, by replacing an older, low efficiency boiler with a new, high efficiency boiler, you can cut your fuel bills by a quarter.

    How can I check my boiler’s efficiency?

    • A central furnace or boiler’s efficiency is measured by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). The Federal Trade Commission requires new furnaces or boilers to display their AFUE so consumers can compare heating efficiencies of various models. AFUE is a measure of how efficient the appliance is in converting the energy in its fuel to heat over the course of a typical year.

      Specifically, AFUE is the ratio of annual heat output of the furnace or boiler compared to the total annual fossil fuel energy consumed by a furnace or boiler. An AFUE of 90% means that 90% of the energy in the fuel becomes heat for the home and the other 10% escapes up the chimney and elsewhere. AFUE doesn’t include the heat losses of the duct system or piping, which can be as much as 35% of the energy for output of the furnace when ducts are located in the attic, garage, or other partially conditioned or unconditioned space.

      An all-electric furnace or boiler has no flue loss through a chimney. The AFUE rating for an all-electric furnace or boiler is between 95% and 100%. The lower values are for units installed outdoors because they have greater jacket heat loss. However, despite their high efficiency, the higher cost of electricity in most parts of the country makes all-electric furnaces or boilers an uneconomic choice. If you are interested in electric heating, consider installing a heat pump system.

    What are
    some highly-efficient boilers I can buy?

    • You may check many high efficiency gas boilers including Weil McLain Ultra Boilers, Lochinvar Boilers, Buderus Boilers, Burnham Alpine Boilers, Embassy Boilers, Prestige Solo Boilers, Viessmann Vitodens Boilers, Slantfin Bobcat Boilers, and Ray-2000 Boilers.

    Why should I consider a new energy efficient boiler?

    • Boilers also account for around 60% of the carbon dioxide emissions in a gas heated home. By replacing an old G-rated boiler with a new A-rated (88% efficient) condensing boiler and improving your heating controls, you could save as much as £310* a year and significantly cut your home’s carbon dioxide emissions.
