How to choose an eco-friendly boiler

In recent decades, boiler manufacturers have made tremendous progress in producing more ecologically friendly boilers. Since April 2015, every new gas boiler installation in the UK has had to be a more environmentally friendly and efficient condensing boiler, signalling a radical shift in the sector.

Rethinking your central heating system is a fantastic place to start if you want to reduce your carbon footprint. In this blog, we'll look at some of the most important elements to consider when looking for a more environmentally friendly boiler, such as efficiency and whether there are any alternatives to gas boilers.

Choosing a Boiler That Is Environmentally Friendly in Redditch

On the ERP scale, every new condensing boiler on the market must get an A grade. This indicates that they scored between 92 and 94 per cent for energy efficiency; the more efficient your boiler is, the less influence it has on the environment and the less money it costs to operate. 

How can condensing boilers efficiently heat our homes in Redditch? 

Condensing boilers, like non-condensing boilers, use fuel to heat and supply hot water in our homes. They accomplish such high levels of efficiency by collecting heat from otherwise discarded 'waste' gases.

Condensing boilers can utilise the energy recovered from these gases to keep the water in central heating systems warm when it returns to the boiler from the radiator, reducing the amount of energy used in the reheating process. 

Choose an Energy Saving Trust-approved boiler in Redditch. 

Look for boilers that are Energy Saving Trust registered if you want to be sure your boiler is providing an environmentally friendly central heating solution.

When Should Your Boiler Be Replaced in Redditch?

It's critical to replace your boiler with an eco-friendly boiler when it breaks down, not only for future energy savings but also for a cleaner, greener environment. When a professional heating engineer suggests replacing your boiler, always follow their advice.

Energy prices might account for up to 60% of your annual boiler expenses. If you believe your energy costs are high as a result of your boiler's operation, consider switching to an eco-friendly boiler. 

Carbon emissions - Newer, more environmentally friendly boilers generate fewer pollutants while retaining a high level of efficiency. Eco boilers include cutting-edge technology that prevents energy loss throughout the combustion process. Radiation loss, start-up loss, and exhaust loss are all inefficiencies that boost the cost of running a boiler. Such losses are not a problem for eco boilers.
