In a World Where You Can Be Anything, Be Warm in Your Own Home

The cost of living crisis has led homeowners to relook at the price of essential services like heating.

And with good reason – heating and hot water typically account for over 50% of annual energy bills!

For many years gas boilers have been the go-to for home heating as they have traditionally been the cheaper option.

But with the focus on protecting the future of the planet and the UK government’s commitment to reach net zero by 2050, what is the best way to heat your home and:
  • Reduce consumption
  • Cut costs
  • Reduce your carbon footprint

Why replace your boiler?

Over time, boilers become less efficient. Replacing your existing unit with an A-rated boiler will:
  • Cut energy costs by up to £350 per year
  • Provide a warmer, more comfortable home
  • Give you greater control over the temperature in each area of your home
  • Cut your carbon emissions by up to 1500kg a year
  • Give you peace of mind that your heating won’t break down on a freezing winter night
  • Add value to your home
  • Be cheaper to repair than an old model as the parts are widely available

But which type of boiler is right for you?

When to go electric
Modern electric boilers:
  • Are cheap to install and maintain
  • Don’t burn fossil fuels
  • Are compatible with solar panels
  • Are efficient and can run on 100% clean energy
  • Last on average 50% longer than gas boilers
  • Have an efficiency rating of up to 99%
  • Are very quiet when in use
  • Are compact and don’t take up much space
  • Don’t need to be placed against an outside wall

When to convert to gas?

Modern gas boilers:
  • Are often a like-for-like swap as most homes are already heated by gas
  • Produce even heat around the home for consistent comfort
  • Are cheap to install and maintain
  • Provide a ‘clean burn’
  • Are not affected by electricity outages 
  • Typically have an efficiency rating of above 90%
  • Run quietly
