Boiler efficiency: How efficient is my boiler?

Did you know heating your home during the winter could account for up to 60% of your energy bills? If your boiler isn’t energy efficient, this percentage could conceivably be even higher.

You could be saving money on your heating costs by working out how efficient your boiler is and making any necessary changes.

How efficient is your boiler?

As a general guide, the efficiency of your boiler can be determined by its age. The newer the system, the more efficient it is likely to be. And if it’s energy efficient it’s likely to be saving you money, as well as reducing your carbon footprint.

If your boiler was installed in 2010 or later, then you can be fairly sure that it’s suitably efficient – as long as it has been serviced during that time. By law, all new boilers installed in or after October 2010 must achieve an A-grade for energy efficiency, or be rated as at least 88% efficient.

Maintaining your boiler

At Help-Link we don’t just install new boilers; we also provide an annual service to make sure your boiler is ticking over as it should be.

We’ll check for leaks or breakages, and make sure that your boiler is working well.

A number of tests will be conducted on your boiler to ensure that it’s working efficiently and within the manufacturer’s operating range. If it is’s working at a high level of performance, you can be sure that it’s as energy efficient as it should be.

The best time for you to have your boiler tested is during summer, when checks can be conducted to see if there is any damage, in preparation for the colder months. Naturally, when the weather cools you’ll want to be sure your boiler is burning at optimum efficiency.

Installing a new boiler

If you believe your energy bills are quite high, or perhaps you had your old boiler serviced and found that a new installation could save you money, you have the option to install a new boiler. This model could be more efficient, and could potentially mean you’ll pocket a few pounds in the long run.

You can get a new boiler with Help-Link, and you could even qualify for a grant that will allow you to save money on a new installation.

How much money could an energy efficient boiler save you?

If you upgrade to a new, energy efficient boiler you could save up to £215 per year on your heating bills according to the Energy Saving Trust.

Naturally, you’ll have to take into account the cost of installing a new boiler, however, in the long-term, you could find it to be a worthwhile investment.

Boiler efficiency can be key to saving money on your energy bills, and can be as easy as making sure your system is serviced regularly. However, if your boiler is several years old, you might have to consider upgrading to feel the full benefits of new, energy-saving technology.
