Both are usually reliable machines that we do not need to think about too much, and just expect them to carry on as usual. However, just as you would adopt a healthy diet and exercise regime in order to maintain a healthy body and heart, your boiler which is responsible for your consumption of gas and oil, and creator of C02, also needs some due care and attention to ensure it works like clockwork and maintains a clean central heating system.

A simple way of putting this is: the better the condition and more looked after your boiler is, the more efficient it will remain, and you'll expect to pay out least in heating bills and minimize the total amount of CO2 emissions it emits. Newly built homes, are more likely to be fitted with energy efficient boilers as standard, which come with programming that is easy to manipulate. However, older properties may suffer with boilers that are cranky and cost far more to run than necessary. In these cases, replacing an older boiler may be the most economically viable option in reducing your heating bills.

It is always a big decision when deciding on the best option when it comes to your home central heating system. If you are deciding to overhaul your central heating system, then the decision to replace an old boiler for a new condensing boiler can increase efficiency up to more than 90%. This will inevitably prove to make a massive difference for the central heating system in your home, as not only is it more efficient, but will be also cost effective. In addition to this, you may want to consider having thermostats installed to ensure that you can properly control the heating temperature and energy that is being consumed in each room of your home. This is an additional step to reducing your heating bills.

Another approach that should not be overlooked is the use of specialized water treatment to eliminate sludge and debris, which can affect the performance of your boiler and central heating system as a whole. There are numerous companies across Europe offering solutions that have been shown by independent research to restore the effectiveness of your heating systems by up to 15%, and restore the efficiency of your boiler by more than 3%. In addition to this, it could also prolong the life of your heating system and gas boiler.
