It is a common theme for green initiatives to promote insulation for your home, and it can be a very effective way to reduce the expense of heating. Preventing the heat that is already there from escaping means you use less fuel and save money. But you may find that it is far more cost effective to just replace your boiler.
We aren't denying that there are significant savings to be made by improving the thermal insulation of your home, but the cost of purchasing this insulation and having it installed can be upwards of ten times the cost of getting a new boiler fitted.
If you boiler is ten years old or more, you can find massive savings in simply changing it for modern A Band gas boiler with a minimum of 92% efficiency.
Of course, the ideal solution would be cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, and a new boiler - the costs of making such improvements to your home can often be reduced by one of the many grants available. It can be a minefield to work out if you can receive a grant and for how much, so speak with us, as fully qualified heating engineers, we can offer expert advice on the matter.
