Is It Time For A New Boiler?
You most likely have a Boiler, and it probably runs ok even though it may be a few years old now.
Several factors must be considered when establishing if you need a new Boiler fitted.
The first is energy efficiency. Do you feel your fuel bills are too high?
Efficient Boilers are essential to keep your fuel bills reasonable as a Boiler accounts for around 60% of household energy spending.
Boilers gradually decrease in efficiency over time, and once they have expired the warranty period (7-12 years with most Boilers), they are most likely running at sub-optimal efficiency.
We fit modern condensing Boilers, which run at between 90-99% efficiency, depending on the type of Boiler fitted and the model.
Condensing Boilers catch escaping gasses and recycle them to heat hot water.
So if you have a 99% efficient Boiler, only 1 penny is wasted for every pound you spend.
Testing has shown old Boilers to run as low as 55% efficiency. So in this scenario, 45 pence is wasted for every £1 you spend on fuel.
Considering the Boiler accounts for the most significant chunk of a home’s energy spend, this is a colossal waste.
For example, if you had an old Boiler running at 55% efficiency and your annual energy bill is £2500, and your Boiler consumes 60% of that energy, your Boiler costs £1500 per year to run.
Now imagine that 45% of the fuel your Boiler consumes is wasted. That’s a waste of £675 per year!
If you have an inefficient old Boiler wasting £675 per year, a New Boiler will pay for itself within 2-3 years.
If you have an old Boiler, you may be experiencing issues with it such as leaking, low pressure, pilot lights blowing out, continuous stopping etc.
Sometimes Boiler Repairs are straightforward and can be undertaken quickly at a reasonable price.
Other times the Boiler is uneconomical to repair and not worth doing as the Boiler’s too old.
It’s often the case that in repair situations, the money is better off going towards a new Boiler.
Have Your Heating & Hot Water Needs Changed?
Most Boilers last 10+ years which is a long time, and in this time, your heating and hot water requirements may have changed.
For example, you may have increased the size of your property with an extension (or planning to) to accommodate your growing family, in which case you need a larger water supply and more radiators. If your current Boiler and central heating system are not up to the increase, it will need upgrading.
On the other hand, your children may have grown up and moved out. As a result, you no longer need a big Boiler and a hot water storage cylinder. Instead, the system can be converted and fitted with a new Combi Boiler while removing the cylinder and water tanks for a smaller, more efficient system.
Boiler Replacements, Boiler Upgrades & New Systems
Whatever your Boiler needs, we will help you. The first step is to book a free no-obligation survey and quote so we can establish your needs and offer you the best Boiler for your home at the best possible price.
Most of the Boiler installations we undertake in Romford are straightforward Boiler replacements which involve removing your old Boiler and fitting a new one of the same type in its place.
The new Boiler will work with your existing central heating system. So, for example, if you already have a Combination Boiler that’s seen better days, we will remove it and fit a new Combi Boiler.
Straightforward Boiler replacements are swifter than Boiler Upgrades & New Systems.
Boiler upgrades are when we remove your old Boiler and fit a different type of Boiler in its place.
There are three Boiler types ‘Combination’, ‘System’ and ‘Regular’. None are better than the other they all work differently and serve different purposes. (there’s more information about Boiler types below)
Sometimes it’s necessary to change the Boiler type, to increase hot water and radiator capacity or reduce waste and improve efficiency.For example, we could remove an old regular Boiler along with the bulky water tanks and hot water storage cylinder. A new combination Boiler is fitted, and the removal of the tanks and cylinder creates more space in the home. The new combination Boiler is more efficient and costs less to run also.In these situations, conversions are made to the central heating system to accept the new type of Boiler.We also fit brand new heating systems in either existing properties or new builds.The old system and Boiler are stripped out and replaced with a modern Boiler, pipes, controls, pumps and cylinder (if applicable), creating a new energy-efficient central heating system.
Boiler Types & Sizes
The first thing to establish is the best fuel to use that’s available at your property. Most homes in Romford are connected to the gas grid, so Gas is the most common type of Boiler we fit in the area. Electricity, Oil and LPG are alternatives to Gas.
Next, we decide the best type of Boiler for your property and heating and hot water requirements.
There are three types of Boilers.
Combination Boilers heat water instantly and send it directly to your hot water taps and radiators. A simple system that doesn’t require a hot water cylinder or tanks. Combination Boilers are fitted in small to medium-sized homes.
System Boilers include a hot water cylinder which ensures an ample hot water supply is available to serve more than one bathroom/hot tap at a time. If the Boiler breaks down, the cylinder can still heat water (as long as an immersion heater’s fitted). System Boilers are fitted into medium and large homes.
Regular Boilers are found on older central heating systems that use water tanks and a water cylinder. Regular Boilers have primarily been replaced by modern combination and system Boilers but are still fitted in homes with older style central heating systems. Regular Boiler systems work best in the largest of properties.
All types of Boilers are available in multiple sizes. The Boiler must be powerful enough to supply all the hot taps, showers and radiators of a home, but not too powerful that energy efficiency is compromised.
Therefore the correct size Boiler must be fitted to serve your daily needs without wasting money.
