Many properties still use older style heating and boiler systems. While the thought of completely replacing your heating system may seem costly and daunting, it’s well worth upgrading to more modern technology. Not sure why? Simple. To save money.
Older systems are less efficient, which means your present boiler or central heating could be costing you a lot more than you would like. Especially over the cold winter months when your heating is likely to be running day and night. Replacing a heating system is a substantial investment. However, the benefits of upgrading far outweigh the costs and here's why:
Less frequent repairs and maintenance
One of the telltale signs it’s time to upgrade your heating system is when you encounter frequent problems. If you have to call out a professional on a regular basis to fix ongoing or numerous issues, the cost can soon add up. It will be more cost-effective to get a new system installed in the long term instead of forking out for more unexpected repairs.
Better energy efficiency
The initial cost of getting a new boiler installed is often a barrier many people can’t get over. In truth, the savings you’ll make by investing in a new boiler will far outweigh your initial outlay. New boilers are more energy efficient. Therefore, they cost a lot less to run than an older style heating system. For families looking to reduce their utility bills, installing a new boiler could significantly reduce energy costs
You’ll have much better control
Smart technology has revolutionalised how we heat our homes. You can now control heating levels in different rooms or turn on your heating on the way home from work. (More importantly, you can also turn it off if you forget to do so before you leave)! Modulating room controls, outdoor sensors, and thermostatic radiator valves all help improve the energy efficiency of your home.
New boilers are quieter
Only boiler systems are large, clunky and take up a lot of space. Take a look at a new system, and you’ll find that they are quieter, smaller and generally more attractive than the older style you are used to.
Help the environment
Are you interested in doing your bit to tackle climate change? Older boiler systems are renowned for wasting lots of energy. Upgrading to a newer, energy-efficient model will help you reduce your carbon footprint. In addition, if you combine your new heating system with high-performance cavity wall insulation, less heat will escape into the atmosphere, keeping you warm and your CO2 emissions down.
