How installing a new boiler can reduce your carbon footprint
Posted September 19, 2019 by Jon Matthews
If you’re a homeowner who wants to start living a more eco-friendly lifestyle, your energy usage is one of the most important things to look at. You can consider how installing a new boiler can reduce your carbon footprint. Boilers that are older than 10 years old are inefficient and should be replaced if you want to reduce your energy consumption. Homeowners in Warrington can lower their carbon footprint with a new, much more efficient boiler.
New regulations from 2018 mean that all new boilers that are installed must meet minimum standards of energy efficiency. They must have an ErP efficiency rating of at least 92%, as well as featuring either a flue gas recovery system, load compensating thermostat, weather compensating thermostat, or smart thermostat. These features help you to have more control over your energy usage, allowing you to monitor it more carefully and make smarter decisions about how you use your energy.
When you have a more efficient boiler, you will automatically use less energy. This both reduces your carbon footprint and lowers your energy bills too. When you can monitor and control your energy consumption more easily you will know when to turn your heating down, and you’ll feel encouraged to use less hot water too.
If you want to live a greener lifestyle, installing a new boiler is a significant step. It can immediately help you to reduce your carbon footprint and start saving money. Ask us about installing a new boiler to find out how it can benefit you.
