THE BEST ENERGY EFFICIENT BOILERS
LOCAL INSTALLERS THROUGH GLASGOW AND SURROUNDING AREAS
Choosing the right boiler is more important than many people think. It’s a big decision. Heating your home makes up a huge proportion of your yearly energy use – an average of 60%! That means energy efficiency is a huge bonus in a boiler.
Energy efficient boilers are ‘condensing boilers’, a technology that exploits a large heat exchanger to recover heat and warm your house up for less. Bonus: this type of boiler is also longer-lasting than traditional boilers.
For households making upgrades from old to new, savings are enormous. Replacing a G-rated boiler with one of the modern A-rated models with handy heating controls can save you £200 a year on your gas bill, according to the Energy Saving Trust. Not only that, but you’ll be happier in the knowledge that new boilers are safer and more reliable than defunct models – not to mention considerably easier to use.
Find out if you could save
Although the benefits of an efficient boiler are huge, it’s important to remember that not every home will see huge savings by switching out their system with something new. The households that will enjoy the biggest benefits are those upgrading from older, inefficient boilers.
If you want some advice on whether you would benefit from a new energy efficient boiler, drop us a line on 0141 432 0750 and we can give you some no-obligation advice.
If you do decide to upgrade, the choices available can be overwhelming. Although most boilers might look similar, once you scratch the surface you realise there’s a whole world of technical differences between them! To help out, we’ve compiled a list of some long-lasting, energy efficient boilers… and described them in plain English.

We know efficiency is important to everyone, whether you’re looking to reduce your bills or your carbon footprint. But did you know you can opt for a boiler that’s both efficient and economical? Heating accounts for about 55% of your annual energy bills, so an efficient boiler makes a big difference.
Saving hundreds of quid per year – and helping to save the planet while you’re at it – is tempting to many a homeowner.
It’s also worth mentioning the more traditional reasons for upgrading, of course: the safety, reliability and ability to draw a bath without visibly ageing… there are lots of advantages to exploring the new wave of boiler technology.
There are lots of types of boiler to choose from, which is why we’re on hand to help you find the right kind for your particular home. Boilers come with different features, and in different sizes, to suit a variety of lifestyles and property types.
Even newer conventional boilers are a notable improvement on old-fashioned types, although the eco-friendly option is usually a combi boiler. These are efficiently designed systems that use condensing technology to ‘win back’ heat, reducing wasted energy. They also come with Eco modes, which help maintain a controllable boiler temperature in standby – no more constant fiddling!
