If your old boiler is becoming inefficient and unpredictable, replacing it could save you money in the long term. Here’s how…
New Boiler Installation and How it Can Save You Money
Your boiler is the beating heart of your home’s central heating system. For years it’s kept you and your family warm and cosy, even in the harshest of winter nights. It’s helped you to wash your dishes, and to soak in a lovely deep hot bath at the end of a gruelling day. At Papernest, we understand that (now, more than ever) the energy we use is essential in facilitating our creature comforts. From a snuggle on the sofa in a warm living room to an invigorating shower first thing in the morning. But when your boiler starts to show signs of wear, the prospect of replacing it may fill you with dread.
You may assume that replacing your boiler will be cripplingly expensive, or that you won’t see any tangible benefit. But as our friends at Allstar Systems will tell you, a new boiler installation can lead to long-term savings.
Who are Allstar Systems?
Allstar Systems are a Norwich-based professional plumbing and heating experts who offer a one-stop-shop for all your boiler needs in the greater Norfolk area. They provide a host of boiler-related services from repairs to servicing and maintenance and, of course, new installations. Take a look at their website here. They will be the first to tell you that, combined with the right energy plan, a new boiler could be a savings powerhouse in your home.
More efficient heating
It’s estimated that around 50% of your monthly energy bills come from your boiler. The trouble is that your boiler could be wasting as much as 30% of the energy it uses. What’s more, when boilers reach the age of around 12-15 they can lose their efficiency even more. So if it takes longer for your radiators to hear up, or they don’t get as hot as they used to, it could be a sign that your boiler is showing its age.
A new grade-A boiler offers over 90% efficiency, so you get more heat energy for your money, reducing your energy bills for years to come. With regular servicing, you could enjoy many years of cost-effective heating.
Less risk of expensive repairs
Older boilers aren’t just more efficient. They’re also much less prone to failures that could result in expensive repairs. While boiler cover can mitigate some of the cost of repairs, you’ll likely find that many boiler cover providers will not offer plans for boilers over the age of 11. Even if they do cover your older boiler, you could pay significantly higher monthly premiums.
Guaranteed for your peace of mind
Boiler manufacturers offer anywhere between 2 years and 12 years manufacturer’s warranty. So you can rest assured that if something goes wrong because of a manufacturing defect, you won’t be stuck with the bill. Furthermore, the good folks at Allstar Systems also offer a 12-month guarantee on the installation itself.
How much could a new boiler save me?
Your savings will depend on the efficiency-rating and age of your old boiler, as well as the size of your home. However, it’s not unreasonable to expect savings of up to £350 per year if you previously had a G-rated boiler.
