Save with a gas combi boiler.
Maturing economies around the planet on increasing call for for gas resulting in higher heating costs. To combat this we need to survey our use of energy in the home. You could reduce your gas costs by up to 35% if you install a new gas-saving condensing gas combi boiler.
Working in the background your present-day gas combi boiler will be heating your home and providing hot water for washing cutlery and clothing in addition to powering your bath. Your present-day combi boiler will have an expected life off up to fifteen years. Although your boiler at home may only be ten or 12 years old it could be wasting gas. Many older boilers are rated as a G on the SEDBUK scale, where A is the most cost-efficient at 95-98% and G the least cost-effective boiler at 20-30%.
If your boiler is over 10 years old, it might be worth investing in a new combi boiler model. This can trim your fuel costs down considerably. The most well-known boiler type is a condensing gas combination boiler which is well suited to smaller families who don’t need large amounts of hot water in a short space of time. As a combi boiler heats the water on call for it does not need a storage tank in the airing cupboard. Having immediate hot water is a benefit but, depending upon the the power rating of your combi boiler, you may feel that the central heating boiler is not able to supply several hot taps at the same time.
A regular gas boiler heats the water and transfers it to a storage tank for rapid access. You will get heat loss and gas releases even though the hot water tank is insulated. If you have a smaller home you will find that you could have other uses for the place that the hot water tank takes up.
A combi boiler only heats water when hot water is called for and is therefore far more cost-effective than gas fired boiler types which use a storage cylinder. The standard combi boiler does lose gas through the hot exhaust gases. This can be taken by a condensing gas combi boiler which is even more economical. The extracted warmth is then used to heat up water saving energy usage.
