Condensing boilers can be up to 10-15% more efficient than a modern conventional boiler and up to 40% more efficient than older boilers, so the energy saving and the impact on your fuel bills can be significant.
The most energy efficient boilers available, condensing boilers cost slightly more but are much cheaper to run than conventional boilers and within 2-4 years the extra cost is generally recovered. The heat that conventional boilers lose is recycled by condensing boilers to pre-heat water, saving money on your heating bills. Condensing boilers can be gas or oil fired and can be fitted to most systems, new and old.
Current regulations state that all new gas and oil boilers should be condensing boilers and must have an ‘A’ or ‘B’ efficiency rating. However, a conventional boiler can be fitted in exceptional circumstances with an ‘exception certificate’.
Condensing boilers have been used for over 20 years and have proved to be very reliable and efficient. They are up to 30% more efficient than an old conventional boiler and can be 10-15% more efficient than a modern non-condensing boiler. They are no more complicated to use or service than a conventional boiler and only have one additional requirement for installation, a drainage pipe for the condensation.
Unlike conventional boilers, condensing boilers use a fan to remove exhaust gases. This is because the gases from a condensing boiler are cooler than the gases from a conventional boiler, so they have a reduced convection flow.
Condensing boilers cost slightly more but will reduce your energy bills significantly, saving you money in the long term.
