Boiler changes are usually completed within one day and are always commissioned according to the manufacturers instruction along with all necessary gas safety checks.
You might think that your boiler is working fine at the moment, but there are a couple of reasons why you might want to actually replace it.
top 7 reasons to upgrade
Better energy savings
Newer boilers often have better energy savings especially if you’re upgrading from an older model that isn’t very efficient.
The energy saving trust estimates that a central heating boiler is responsible for 60% of your household energy bills, so having a more efficient boiler can make a sizable difference to your bills. Most new condensing boilers are A rated which means their efficiency is 90% or more. A typically an old non-condensing boiler would be G rated which means it could well be 55% -70% efficient. Depending on your current gas bill this could be saving you up to €300,- on your gas bill per year.
Decrease malfunctions & costs
Boilers tend to last around 10 to 15 years before their efficiency drops, so if you’ve noticed weird quirks with your boiler or if it’s breaking down more regularly, you may want to replace it to lower the risk of future malfunctions.
In most cases, newer boilers cost less to maintain than older ones, meaning that repairs and servicing can cost a lot less in the long run especially if something serious malfunctions with your boiler.
Old boilers are fairly large and bulky, so replacing a boiler can offer space savings if you want to free up space in your home.
Boost energy label rating
If you plan to sell or rent your home in the future then improving your home’s energy efficiency will make it more desirable, and this can be achieved with a new and improved boiler that offers better fuel efficiency.
Having a perfect working central heating system (which translates into a better energy label rating of your house) increases the value of the house giving you a greater return.
Quieter boiler operation
Due to improved design and better use of materials, new boilers can be significantly quieter than older type boilers. This can make a real difference when a boiler is sited the other side of a bedroom wall.
Changing of living situation
Your boiler delivers a certain amount of hot water per minute, if there is a change to the hot water demand, a higher KW boiler may be needed to supply the demand of hot water now needed. A change to the hot water demand can be caused by an installation of a bath, a second bathroom or the addition of a rainfall shower.
Improving heating control & greener home
Using a heating control with TRVs and a room thermostat allows you to set the temperature in each room separately. Each TRV shuts off its radiator from the heating when the air around the valve reaches the desired temperature.
Generally people prefer sleeping areas to be about 2 degrees C cooler than living areas so by using TRVs can improve comfort levels. Once each room is at the desired temperature and all the TRVs have shut off their radiators then a room thermostat, placed near one radiator without a TRV, can switch the entire boiler system off. This saves money as well as keeping the temperature at the right level.
Also TRVs in rooms used only occasionally such as a spare room for guests, can be set at a low level so the room is not heated unnecessarily.
And that makes your house greener!
