Here are few advantages you get from new boilers and difficulties with the old ones.
Problems with old boilers
If you’re still using an old boiler, they are doing nothing but wasting energy and money. This can happen due to various reasons. For example, a gravity-fed hot water cylinder can be very sluggish to re-heat. If your cylinder does not have a thermostat, it is almost impossible to control, which means you could well be heating water excessively, creating a risk of scalding. If there aren’t any room thermostats, you will be heating the whole house rather than only the rooms that need to be heated. Consequently, you will be spending money to heat a room that no-one is using.
Advantages of having a new boiler
It is always good to replace your old boilers with new boilers from Simply Gas. This is because they work more efficiently than the old ones and also re-use some of the energy they generate.
Having fully programmable controls makes it easier to control which room to heat up and what time you want that room to heat up. With modern controls, you can calculate how warm a room is and adjust the temperature accordingly, and you can set different times and temperatures for different days of the week and programme your boiler to only work when someone is in the house. It is also possible to regulate the temperatures of individual rooms, which means that you won’t be wasting money heating areas that aren’t occupied and you won’t need to waste energy with an electric heater on those occasions when you are only using one room.
