Boiler replacement and boiler maintenance
If your boiler is a bit on the old side then it could be time for boiler replacement. You should opt for a boiler that is much more energy-efficient. Modern boilers are condensing boilers which burn fuel much more efficiently. They have larger heat exchangers which mean that they lose less heat and hot gases up the flue and recover more heat. The heat that is recovered is then recycled and used to reheat water coming back into the boiler system from your radiators.
When you plan to replace your boiler there are a few factors to take into consideration such as fuel type. If your home has mains gas, then a gas boiler works out more cost-effective. If you do not have a gas connection it might be worth checking to see if it is going to be worth your while to get one. A new boiler is a big investment so it’s important that you get it right. One of our heating engineers will be happy to guide you in the right direction and assist with your decision-making.
What type of boiler do you want and how much hot water are you likely to use?
You will also need to consider the type of boiler. Rather than the hot water coming straight from your boiler, the usual gas and oil boilers use a separate hot water cylinder to store hot water. Combi boilers do not need this separate cylinder. Although regular boilers are more efficient than combi boilers at producing hot water, some heat will escape from the hot water cylinder. This means that the combi boiler may be greater in its overall efficiency.
Another factor to take into consideration is how much hot water you are likely to use. A larger family may benefit more from a regular boiler whereas those using less water may benefit more from a combi boiler. If space is more of an issue, then combi boilers take up less space since they don’t have a hot water cylinder.
It is worth noting that solar water heating systems are not compatible with combi boilers if you are thinking about going down this route for your boiler replacement.
