Choosing A Boiler - We recommend the Worcester-Bosch range and as an accredited installer we can offer a full 5-year warranty PLUS an extra 1-year if you have taken advantage of the scrappage scheme.

From April 1st 2005, it became mandatory in England and Wales through Building Regulations to only install High Efficiency boilers, whether in new houses or as replacements.

How old is your boiler?

Boilers over 15 years old are often only around 60 per cent efficient or less (rated G in the SEDBUK* scale), which means that for every pound spent on fuel, 40p is wasted.

These are our comments on the energy efficiency of
condensing boilers:

“We recognise that updating your boiler to a modern condensing boiler can be a simple way to reduce fuel bills and improve the energy efficiency of your home. This is why our Greenstar range of gas and oil fired condensing boilers are all over 90% efficient and are A-rated for efficiency, which means they are better for the environment as well as reducing fuel bills.”

Boilers - get in the know

There are three main types of high-efficiency condensing boiler- the combination or ‘Combi’, the system and the regular. Each type delivers the benefits of high-efficiency technology, but is suitable for different types of homes.

Combi

Combination or ‘combi’ boilers heat your home and provide instant hot water without the need for a tank. Combi boilers are an increasingly popular choice in UK homes and in fact, account for well over half of all the new domestic boilers installed in Britain every year.

Regular

Regular boilers are suitable for homes with a traditional heating and hot water system. Unlike a combi, regular boilers work on the principle of stored water and require a separate hot water tank, which determines how many bathrooms can be supplied. Regular boilers require more space than either combi or system boilers as they often require an expansion tank in the loft.

System

System boilers also use stored water which allows them to feed several hot water taps at a time, making them ideal for large homes. In contrast to regular boilers, system boilers have most of their major components of the heating and hot water system built in, making them more efficient and less space consuming.
