Modern central heating systems are now far more efficient & advanced than they were even ten years ago. With our modern, progressive outlook coupled with continued product training with boiler manufactures we are equally at home with the oldest heating systems, as we are with the current Condensing and Combination boilers.
Combination Boilers have been used on the continent for many years, but have only taken off in the UK within the last 15 years when the Water Authorities had a change of policy. Combi Boilers now account for a very large part of boiler sales, as well as gas & oil. The benefits of Combi Boilers are substantial fuel savings, high efficiency, versatility in positioning the appliance and ease of installation. An added advantage is that a Combination Boiler installation will free up airing cupboard space, remove the need for tanks in the attic and supply unlimited hot water on demand.
Condensing boilers are designed to make real savings on heating bills. Savings between 20-30% are possible, and if replacing an old inefficient system this could be even higher.
In conventional boilers, approximately one third of the heat is lost through the flue. In a high efficiency condensing boiler more than half of that previously lost heat is recovered. In other words, it is recycled which means that the efficiency of these appliances can reach up to 93-95% in 'condensing mode'. Condensing boilers are the most efficient heating appliance in the energy-conscious 1990's.
It is important to ensure that boiler what ever the age is regularly serviced. Not only does this increase the efficiency, it will also prolong the life of the boiler.
It is also necessary to chemically flush out the heating system, from time to time this also increase the efficiency of the boiler.
