A new boiler with CosiHomes could cut your fuel bills by up to 25%
We get asked at CosiHomes all the time, when is the best time to replace an old boiler? The simple answer is that the SEAI recommend that you should replace your boiler if it is more than 15 years old, even if it appears to be working fine.
Let us explain in more detail, typically, the “as new” efficiency of an oil or gas boiler over 15 years old would have been less than 80%. Its present efficiency today, due to wear and tear is unlikely to be greater than 70%.
The current range of boilers available today will have efficiencies greater than 90%. This represents an operational improvement in efficiency of up to 20 %
And by increasing the operational efficiency of your boiler by up to 20%, this represents an actual fuel saving of more than 25%. In other words, by replacing an older, low efficiency boiler with a new, high efficiency boiler, you can cut your fuel bills by a quarter.
So, replacing old boilers makes good sense for three reasons:
- Significant fuel cost savings with can only increase as energy prices escalate.
- Improved reliability and safety.
- And now, with the Better Energy Homes scheme, you could even get a grant to help cover the cost of boiler and heating control upgrades. (You can Contact our Grants team here at CosiHomes to see if you are eligible)
If you have a boiler older than 15 years then it is most likely during the next few years that you will have to replace it on reliability grounds in any case.
By planning the change (rather than it being forced on you in the depth of winter when it breaks down) we can offer you a hugely competitive price and reduce your costs.
