The energy saving trust estimates that a central heating boiler is responsible for 60% of your household energy bills, so having a more efficient boiler can make a sizeable difference to your bills.
Depending on your gas bill, moving to a more efficient condensing boiler could save £200-£300 per year. The installation of a replacement boiler typically takes only 1 day, so it is a very effective and economical choice to make.
Choose a boiler from an established brand that includes a guarantee, and ensure the work is done by a gas safe registered engineer.
