There comes a time when your boiler is on it’s last legs and you must start to look for a replacement. There has been much discussion in the media regarding boiler savings and increased efficiency particularly at a time where we should all be making every effort to reduce our carbon footprint. You would be excused for not knowing where to start. During recent years we have seen a rise in energy prices as well as a need to cut emissions for EU targets however by installing an A rated boiler and following a few guidelines it is possible to reduce your bills by up to 50%.
1.THE COMBINATION BOILER or “COMBI”
This Combi boiler is the most poplar choice in the UK due to its efficiency and its discrete installation capability in limited space such as a kitchen cupboard. A Combi Boiler offers a combination of both hot water and central heating solution from one central unit. There is no need for a separate hot water cylinder as the system offers hot water on demand directly from your supply.
2. CONVENTIONAL BOILERS
This is a gravity fed water system with the feeder and expansion tank kept in the loft. A separate water cylinder is located in an airing cupboard and the boiler in a separate location. These systems are a little out of date but still serve many homes today.
3. UNVENTED SYSTEM BOILERS
Unvented hot water cylinders store water from the mains water supply. The water is heated either with heat from a boiler or using other electrical heating elements. This provides high pressure hot water supplies to feeding outlets. The increased pressure helps deliver better quality showers without the need for pumps. With unvented systems there is no need for a cold storage tank which helps free up space and requires much less pipework.
POWER FLUSH – REAP THE BENEFITS
With most people finding that utility bills are now their second largest bill each year, after mortgage or rent payments, it’s important to resolve this costly issue. Your heating bill could be costing far too much every year, and you may not know why. Most homeowners aren’t aware of the fact that corrosion inside heating system pipes can block freshly heated water from travelling to radiators. The corrosion could be so bad that blocked pipes may prevent the temperature from reaching the specified thermostat guide, so your boiler will just keep running and running and running. This will mean far more £££s added to the bill than you should be paying. Fortunately, technology has advanced so that it’s now possible to clear out corrosion from pipes of old systems. You can say goodbye to thick corrosion that is stopping your rooms from reaching their warm temperature potential each winter. The reason why corrosion stops water running freely is that it creates a sludge. Even just one deep power-flush clean can remove this sludge and make it possible for pipes and radiators to heat up properly without any cold spots. Cleaning can result in a system that has a longer lifespan and reduces the risk of needing maintenance, or even worse, complete breakdowns. None of us want that to happen, especially over Christmas and New Year, when it can be very cold and inconvenient.
