What Type Of New Boiler?
If you have an old appliance, it will probably be a system boiler that has a separate cylinder to store hot water. You may choose to have one of these types of boilers again. Or, you may choose a more modern new boiler such as a gas boiler or a combi boiler to be installed. This doesn’t need a separate cylinder and is also usually more energy efficient overall.

How Much Hot Water Do You Use?
The common consensus is that if you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, you’re generally better off with a regular boiler. However, in smaller households that have fewer people in them, combi boilers are usually a better option. If you get a quote from ourselves, a specialist engineer will go through the options with you which are best for your circumstances.
How Much Space Do You Have for your Boiler Installation?

New Boiler = Improved Boiler Efficiency
The energy saving trust estimates that old central heating boilers are responsible for up to 60% of household energy bills. So, having a more efficient new boiler can make a difference to your monthly bills. Most new condensing boilers are ‘A rated’ which means their efficiency is much better.
The efficiency of your old boiler will depend on several factors but typically, an old non-condensing boiler will have a ‘G rating’. This means it could be less than 70% efficient. Depending on your gas bill, moving to a more efficient new boiler could save you over £300 per year.
Improved Heating Control Cost
Using a heating controller with TRVs and a room thermostat allows you to set the temperature in each room individually. Each TRV shuts down the radiator from the heating when the term temperature around the valve hits the set temperature. Generally, people prefer separate sleeping areas to be a couple of degrees colder than the main living rooms in the home. So, using TRVs on each radiator can improve comfort levels in each room.
Once each room is at the desired temperature and all the TRVs have shut off the radiators, then a room thermostat can switch the entire heating system off. This saves on bills as well as maintaining the correct temperature.
A Much Quieter Boiler
A new boiler can be significantly quieter than an older boiler. This can make a real difference if the boiler is on the other side of a bedroom wall. Modern boilers tend to be smaller too.
As a result, there are more options for placing, They can even be hidden in a kitchen cupboard or the loft. This can free up useful space in most householders.
