How to Maximise Your Energy Efficiency With a New Boiler Installation

Energy Efficiency With a New Boiler Installation

Are you interested in exploring the best ways to improve efficiency standards in your home? If so, then you might want to consider a new boiler installation. An older boiler could be costing you a fortune, particularly if it:

  • Wasn’t installed correctly
  • Is more than ten years old
  • Hasn’t been maintained

Changing your boiler could help bring a new green standard for your property and cut your costs at the same time. 

Factors To Consider When Choosing An Energy Efficient Boiler 

There are a few key factors that you should consider choosing an energy efficient boiler. 

Different Types Of Energy Efficient Boilers

There are various types of energy efficient boilers. The right choice will depend on your household and your needs. For instance, a combi boiler has two separate hot water circuits for the radiators and the taps, which means it can provide hot water instantly.

Alternatively, you could opt for a biomass boiler. These boilers are fuelled using materials such as wood pellets. While they do take up a lot of space in a home, they are becoming more popular due to the higher levels of sustainability they provide.

There’s also the option of a condensing boiler. Condensing boilers can save homeowners hundreds of pounds a year on energy bills. Due to new government regulations, all new boilers installed in homes across the UK are condensing boilers. However, your current boiler may not be, so it’s worth checking this.

Selecting The Right Size Boiler For Your Home 

Another key consideration is the size of the boiler you need for your home. It’s tempting to select the smallest boiler possible for your property. However, if you have a larger home, this won’t save you money or energy. Instead, your boiler will need to work harder to fuel your home and keep it warm, potentially resulting in higher costs. On the other hand, if your boiler is too large for your home, it can lead to wastage of water and fuel that you don’t need. That’s why it’s important to consult with professionals when choosing the right size for your property. 

Consider Fuel Sources 

Finally, you must consider the fuel that your boiler uses, as it has a significant impact on price and efficiency standards. For instance, condensing gas boilers are far more efficient compared to electricity, oil, coal, and LPG (liquified petroleum gas). You may also want to consider switching to a low carbon heat pump, which allows you to reduce your energy usage based on the type of fuel you are using.

Hiring A Professional Boiler Installer 

If you’re adding an energy efficient boiler to your home, it’s vital that you use a professional boiler installer. Qualified and experienced boiler installation professionals will guarantee that your boiler is installed correctly, ensuring that you don’t run into function or efficiency issues in the future. They can also provide clear recommendations on the right boiler size, location, and energy requirements for your home.

Choosing Your Boiler Installer

To choose the right boiler installer, there are a few steps you should take. You should:

  • Get quotes from at least three different professionals
  • Ask questions about anything you don’t understand
  • Check details of warranties and guarantees provided 
  • Explore reviews and ratings before settling on the right company

A thorough search will provide you with peace of mind and ensure that you find a boiler installation company you can trust and depend on. 

Additional Benefits 

There are also other significant advantages of using a professional installation if you are eager to achieve the highest standards of energy efficiency in your home. Over time, boilers do tend to break down, fail, and falter. However, often this is a result of a poor original installation. If the boiler is not installed the right way, you could lower than usual efficiency levels from day one or just a few months after the installation. This is one of the key reasons why you should always choose your boiler installer carefully.
