Why Should I Consider Replacing My Homes Boiler?

Why should I consider replacing my boiler? When the time comes to change your boiler, you need to choose what type of boiler is best for you. Here are some factors that you may wish to consider…

Fuel type

For those with mains gas, a gas boiler is usually going to be the cheapest heating option. If you do not have a mains gas supply to your home, then it may be worth looking into a form of low-carbon heating such as biomass.

Boiler type

Most old gas boilers have a separate hot water cylinder to store hot water. When you replace your boiler, the choice is yours whether to buy a regular boiler – keeping your existing hot water cylinder – or buy a combi-boiler. Although a regular boiler is more efficient at producing hot water, some heat is lost from the cylinder so that a combi may be more efficient in the long run.

Hot water usage

Larger families that use a great deal of hot water are more likely to be better off with a regular boiler. Smaller households may be better off choosing a combi boiler.

Space in your home

Because combi-boilers don’t need hot water cylinders, they require less space in your home.

Solar water heating

If you are planning on installing solar water heating, it is worth noting that a lot of combi boilers are not compatible with such systems.

Why Consider Replacing My Homes Boiler?

The main advantage of newer condensing boilers is their larger heat exchanger than older models. The heat exchanger makes the gases in the flue cooler. The flue gases can cool by so much that the water vapour condenses from the gas. Consequently, even more, energy can be recovered from the vapour.
