We have categorized and described the types of boilers available on this site
Be careful however, just because a boiler company historically has a good name it doesn’t mean that all their boilers are the best value. To compete in today’s market a number of manufacturers have launched cheaper models with lesser quality components.
We would always suggest you ask your installer to recommend a choice of boilers with reasons why. It is always better for your installer to supply the boiler. The installer then has a contractual and statutory link with the supplier if there are any problems.
Regarding Natural Gas Boilers
Compared to electrical heating, gas heating is typically less expensive. Obviously savings depend on several things, such as the area you live in, efficiency of your present gas boiler or water heater and your local supplier choices. As a whole natural gas is less expensive than electricity across most of the UK. Installing a new high efficiency gas boiler heating system could make you eligible for rebates from your local gas utility provider. With new high efficiency natural gas appliances it is possible to cut your natural gas bill up to 50%, as stated this does depend on having the highest efficiency ratings.
The production of natural gas is several times more efficient than electricity. The production of electricity uses a large amount of energy. On average only 30% of energy used to produce electricity reaches your home. That is a staggering 70% loss of energy.
On the other hand 90% of natural gas reaches your home after production, wasting only 10% of energy. Homes that use natural gas typically produce less negative impacts on our environment. In most cases, homes heated using natural gas produce up to 50% less environmentally damaging toxins that homes heated by electricity.
Of all fossil fuels, natural gas is far by the cleanest choice. Using natural gas lowers greenhouse gases and carbon emitted by your household. Natural gas also generates substantially less carbon dioxide than these commonly used alternatives.
Natural gas heating is a healthier alternative when compared to other heating fuels. A minimal amount of sulfur dioxide is produced by natural gas heating systems. Coupled with lower dissolved solids and airborne particulates, all of which can have a huge negative impact on the the environment, health of your family and pets. Today a well maintained and correctly functioning gas heating system produces nearly zero carbon dioxide.
