Is your boiler energy efficient?
Heating accounts for about 60% of what you spend in a year on energy bills, so an energy efficient boiler makes a big difference. A boiler’s energy efficiency rating is an indicator of how much it’s going to cost you to run. It’s a great way to compare new boilers to find out which energy efficient boiler model is likely to save you more on your energy bills.
How efficient is my boiler?
To determine your boiler's efficiency, you'll need to find a small sticker with an energy efficiency rating. If you have a modern boiler, you can locate the sticker on the boiler or inside your boiler's information pack. For an older boiler with 60% efficiency, only 60% of the energy used by the boiler goes to heating the home, meaning a whopping 40% is lost. So gas usage for an inefficient boiler will be much higher when compared to an energy-efficient boiler leading to higher bills.
What is a good boiler efficiency rating?
Once you've located your boiler's rating, you'll want to know what it means. The figure will range from 60% to 95%, depending on the age and type of boiler. Today's boilers will be in the high 80s or low 90s – making them very efficient boilers.
If your boiler's rating is under 85%, it's likely to be a non-condensing boiler at least 15 years old. If the rating is below 80%, the boiler will likely be an older model.
