A new boiler can not only save you money on energy bills, it can also help reduce your carbon footprint. A household’s carbon footprint is the amount of greenhouse gases they produce and contribute to global warming. The average UK home has a yearly carbon footprint of 12 tonnes which equates to about one tonne per person in the household each year. An efficient replacement boiler will use less fuel than an older model so you’ll be reducing your emissions as well as saving money!
A boiler’s efficiency is measured by how much heat it produces per unit of energy used. The most efficient boilers use less than 20% fuel, while the least efficient can use up to 40%. An efficient boiler could save you up to £300 per year and is just one way of reducing your energy bill – it can also help reduce your carbon footprint! A replacement for an older model, which will use less fuel than a new one, can be efficient if the boiler is rated as A+.
A good quality new boiler should use less fuel than an older model (a saving of around 12% of the annual bill) as well as being more efficient when it comes to how much hot water is produced for every unit of energy used. The best way to save energy in your home is by replacing an old boiler with a new one, so cut costs and emissions today by getting your local qualified heating engineer to install a newer and greener boiler!
