Can I Save Money by Replacing the Boiler in my Home or Business?

When considering the amount of money you could save on your heating bills by installing a more energy efficient boiler, it is important to remember that about 55% of your total energy costs is spent on the work that your boiler undertakes.

By assessing your current boiler and comparing it to newer A-rated systems you will be able to quickly notice the difference that a new boiler installation can make to your household bills.

The level of energy efficiency of your boiler is rated on a scale of A – G. The most energy efficient boilers are rated A and the least energy efficient models are rated G.
