How efficient is your boiler?

Published by

In the UK more than half of the average household bills are spent on fuel.

For maximum boiler efficiency, your boiler should be tailored to the size of your property. A too small boiler will be inadequate, leaving your home cold and without hot water. A too large boiler will result in a waste of energy and money. The price of fuel is rising and until we can rely on renewable energy sources, households will just have to keep paying whatever the energy companies are charging.

If you are looking to purchase a new boiler, there are plenty of online calculators available to help you choose.

These calculators take into consideration the size of your property including how many bathrooms, and sinks you have. The calculators are simple enough to use  but at the end of the day nothing beats discussing your requirements with an actual human who understands your day-to-day routine. At Pro Heating choosing the right boiler is part of the package. We won’t direct you to a website, or expect you to do all the complicated equations yourself. Our engineers will visit your property to carry out all the necessary measurements themselves. They will listen to what you have to say about your hot water needs and can advise you on the best boiler for your requirements. We offer this as a part of our service because we want our customers to save money, but also because we care about the environment.

Look for the SEDBUK  (seasonal efficiency of domestic boilers in the UK) information when you purchase a new boiler. This system is used to classify how efficiently a boiler converts fuel into heat. The higher the rating, the more efficient the boiler.

If you are not looking to purchase a new boiler but want to reduce your energy costs try installing a thermostat, or investigating renewable fuel options in your area.

To learn more about energy waste and boiler efficiency we recommend reading the Energy Saving Trust website and using their home energy check
