A recent report has shown heating accounts for about 60 per cent of what you spend in a year on energy bills, so an efficient boiler can make a huge difference to your payments.
Here at UK Gas, we know just how much more efficient and beneficial modern boilers are and therefore recommend these to our customer to ensure they’re getting the most for their money as well as being provided with a product that’s reliable.
The main reason these modern boilers are efficient is they are all condensing boilers which in essence means compared to most well-maintained boilers, that burn their fuel very efficiently but inevitably lose some heat in the hot gases that escape up the flue, a condensing boiler has a larger heat exchanger, so it recovers more heat, sends cooler gases up the flue and is more efficient.
Sometimes the flue gases get so cool that the water vapour in the gas condenses out (hence the name), and even more energy is recovered from the condensing vapour.
It’s for this reason that so many boiler manufactures have invested so much as of late in to their technology, including boiler controls which allow greater efficiency due to the better the control, the higher the fuel savings and lower environmental costs of consumption.
With condensing boilers now the norm, the most efficient heating systems are designed for a higher temperature drop so that the return water is a lower temperature, which offers greater condensation opportunities and, therefore, higher boiler efficiencies.
