Should you change to an A-rated boiler? HomeBlogCentral Heating & BoilersShould you change to an A-rated boiler?

Over the last few years there has been a huge increase in utilities bills, something that we all want to try and cut back on but whilst still being able to heat our homes.

It looks like utilities are set to increase even further, so it’s important that you can find ways in which to cut your bills and make significant savings.

If you have a boiler that is between 5 and 15 years old, you’re in the majority of people in the UK. However, technology has advanced massively in the last few years, meaning that there are some exceptionally efficient heating systems out there. The main reason is that there has been a huge improvement in condensing technology.

Most boilers today are condensing boilers, meaning that they are able to utilise a lot more of the heat that they produce. When a boiler burns fuel to generate heat, they produce waste gasses. These need to be removed from the property, as it can be a serious health risk if they aren’t.

This is done by fitting a boiler with flue which acts much like a chimney. When it comes to condensing boilers, a lot of useful heat energy is also lost as part of this process.

A condensing boiler has a longer heat exchange, which catches more heat energy and pulls this back to be used as part of the central heating system. This makes the process much more efficient, and you can use the heat you pay for to warm your home.

Most modern combi-boilers are A-rated condensing boilers, and as a result they offer customers premium efficiency levels, often sitting above 90%. This means that these A-rated central heating systems can take advantage from a more efficient fuel supply, and so the heating system needs to be utilised less, helping you to save you a lot of money.

If you currently have an inefficient G-rated boiler, by changing to an A-rated boiler you could save over £300 a year, which is a substantial saving and in a short time you would pay for your new boiler in savings.
