How efficient is your boiler?
All new boilers have a energy label, which ranges from A-G, ranking boiler efficiency. Nearly all modern condensing boilers are rated with an A energy rating, which means they’re highly efficient.
If you are shopping for a new boiler, you should consider a condensing boiler, as new condensing boilers are the most efficient on the market. This is because they make use of modern heat exchangers, which can recover more energy from the vapour, which would otherwise be lost through condensation.
What are the advantages of good boiler efficiency?
Good boiler efficiency is essential for a number of reasons, including:
- Lowering energy bills- with more than 60% of the household bill budget spent on heating, an efficient boiler can be an effective way to reduce bill costs. A boiler that is efficient will create more heat from less fuel, which will reduce your energy use, and your bill.
- Fewer boiler breakdowns- Boilers that are more efficient tend to have fewer issues with wear and tear, as the components will not overheat. In addition, keeping your boiler running efficiently involves regular maintenance and servicing. This means that your boiler will stay in good working condition for longer, and you will be less likely to experience a boiler breakdown?
