Building regulations now insist that all new boilers installed in any domestic home should be high efficiency condensing boilers. Condensing boiler prices vary depending on size and other features, but the price is well worth the benefits. With 60% of your home energy costs being directly linked to the boiler you use, it is well worth installing a high efficiency boiler to hopefully lower your bills.
What is a condensing boiler?
High efficiency condensing boilers are a great choice for those who care about the environment (every year a condensing boiler could save up to 1.7 tonnes of carbon dioxide). Condensing boilers are able to fully utilise the heat they generate from burning fuels, making them on average 25% more efficient than non-condensing models.
