Reduce your Bills with An Energy-Efficient Boiler

Published: 24 Mar 2023 ・ Read time: 5 mins
As the UK springtime began with heavy snowfall, attention once again turned to home heating options. With energy bills at their highest, finding ways to heat your home inexpensively remains a priority. Yet, the biggest culprit of high energy bills for many is often an old, worn-out boiler. 
This is the time of the year when many people realise their boiler is on its last legs! If your boiler is over 10 years old or often breaks down, your radiators may be underperforming. This means you could have a heating system that just never quite works properly when you need it the most. 
Unfortunately, rising energy bills show little signs of slowing down anytime soon. So, now's the perfect time to consider replacing that old inefficient boiler with an energy-efficient model. Here at City Plumbing, we have 1000s of boilers now back in stock. So, there's never been a better time to change to an energy-efficient model.

What Is an Energy-Efficient Boiler?

The most cost-efficient way to heat a home is with an energy-efficient boiler. An energy-efficient boiler is one that usefully uses the most energy to heat your home. Its efficiency thus lies in the percentage of the total energy it uses to provide such heating. 
As we pay for 100% of the energy we use, we need to ensure our boiler's efficiency is of the highest percentage. This ensures we get the maximum heat from it, thus heating our homes more cost-effectively long-term. 

Will a New Boiler Be More Efficient?

When choosing a new boiler, selecting an energy-efficient model will help lower your annual gas bills. Energy-efficient boilers will offer several benefits such as:
  • Improved installation process - quick and hassle-free
  • Increased performance with an 'A' Efficiency Rating
  • Over 90% increased efficiency in comparison to older models
  • Vastly reduced gas consumption
  • Water waste reduction
  • Optimal efficiency when heating demand is low
  • Powerful performance at a reduced cost
  • Much quieter when in operation
  • Instantaneous hot water
  • A reduction of household CO2 emissions
  • Energy bill costs cut, with as much as 30% savings on annual bills
  • Visually clearer display panels, easier for homeowners to operate
  • Wireless connectivity for improved control (in some models)

The installation of the Worcester 4000 is the simplest of tasks with a pre-piping jig that offers rear piping as standard. What's more, long flue lengths are flexible with as much as up to 12m. To reduce the risk of freezing, a 500ml integrated condensate syphon is included.

An Energy-Efficient Boiler Replacement Is the Perfect Upgrade for an Old Boiler

Many old boilers will struggle to get through the temperamental UK weather and need to work harder, resulting in even higher energy bills. Over time, the older designs of some boilers can also make them difficult to find parts for, posing a risk of repeated breakdowns. It can take longer for the parts to arrive or you may even find them discontinued, thus being without heat and hot water. We always recommend installing a new boiler on your own terms - rather than spending even more money when your old boiler decides to stop working.
A central heating system is still considered to be the cheapest way to heat a house right now. Yet, for many, this will mean installing an energy-efficient boiler to replace an old or inefficient one.
So, if you're looking to reduce your monthly heating costs and help the environment whilst you're at it, take a look at the City Plumbing website.
