Condensing Boilers

New condensing boilers are about 91% efficient compared to an efficiency of around 70%-80% for older, non-condensing boilers.

Condensing boilers convert more fuel into usable heat which increases efficiency. Reduced running costs and lower CO² emmisions are a by product of this. From April 2005 it became law that all new gas boilers installed should be high efficiency condensing boilers.

Is my Boiler a High-Efficiency Condensing type?

If your boiler was purchased and installed within the last few years than the probability is that your appliance is condensing. However, if your appliance is older, than you are likely to have a non-condensing standard efficiency boiler.

Should I replace my Boiler?

If your boiler is ten to fifteen years old then it is unlikely to be a condensing boiler. By replacing your old boiler with a new condensing boiler can save you around a third on your heating bills straight away.

Gas Condensing Boilers

Condensing boilers are not a new type of boiler, rather a high-efficiency version of your existing boiler.

Gas Condensing Boilers are the most popular type of boiler due to the prevelance of Natural Gas. LPG Condensing Boilers are also available. Also available are Gas Condensing Combination Boilers, Gas Condensing System Boilers and Gas Condensing Heating Boilers. There is lots of choice available for consumers buying Gas Condensing Boilers. Leading manufacturers include Potterton, Vaillant, Glow-worm, Worcester Bosch and Ideal Boilers.
