Why you should choose an eco-friendly boiler for your home September 03, 2021 In this blog, we've looked at some of the most important aspects to consider when looking for a more environmentally friendly boiler. Get in contact with our friendly team here at Vital Plumbers if you're concerned about lowering your carbon footprint and becoming a little greener in and around Harpenden, including Welwyn Garden City, St. Albans, and Hertfordshire. In recent times, there have been significant advancements in the eco-friendly boiler market, with boiler manufacturers putting in significant effort to create more ecologically friendly models. Since April 2015, every new gas boiler installation in the UK has been required to be a more environmentally friendly and efficient condensing boiler in order to focus on keeping the planet greener. That means that every new boiler on the market has been a condensing boiler with an A rating on the Energy-related Products Directive's scale. As a result, any new boilers will have an energy efficiency of 92 to 94 per cent, which is extremely beneficial for the environment since it means less energy wastage, which means less environmental effect and cheaper operating expenses. We install Energy Saving Trust approved boilers At Vital Plumbers, we suggest that you invest in a boiler that has been approved by the Energy Saving Trust to ensure that your boiler provides a more environmentally friendly central heating option. If you're concerned about how environmentally friendly a boiler is, an endorsement from the Energy Saving Trust means it utilises new green technology to be more energy efficient.

Energy-efficient boiler installations Beware of the dangers of older, inefficient boilers Carbon monoxide leaks from old boilers are known to be hazardous and can lead to poisoning. The amount of pollution produced by the waste gases released by these boilers is determined by the type of fuel utilised to generate heat. Heating systems have traditionally relied on fossil fuels, and this has been one of the primary sources of pollution. Despite the fact that many boilers use fossil fuels, consumers are increasingly turning to green heating alternatives that are more energy efficient. After a long winter, energy bills might seem a lot higher than normal, and they have a habit of appearing when you least expect them. One of the main causes of such high costs is an inefficient boiler. Replacing an old boiler system with a newer, more efficient model can be expensive to install but is cheaper to run in the long-term.
