Gas Boiler Replacement From Insight Energy Systems

Has your Gas boiler begun to play up? Is it over eight years old?

Maybe the time has come for a replacement. If you end up spending hundreds of pounds on repairing your old boiler that breaks down again within a year it is often a lot more cost effective to replace it with a new one.

In doing so you will benefit from the latest A-rated efficiency that a brand new boiler offers, coupled with the latest controls and weather compensation.

There are now some new regulations relating to new boilers or new heating systems being installed in new and existing homes, these were introduced in June 22.

These regulations cover the energy performance of new and existing properties and are known as Part L of the building regulations.

For existing properties that are having a whole new system the regulations require the system to run at a maximum of 55 ͦ C. However, if you were going to all that expense the more sensible option would be to install a Heat pump.

Having said that a Heat Pump is not always a viable option on some properties due to siting of the unit outside and proximity to neighbouring properties.

For existing properties where you are just replacing the boiler (not the radiators and pipework) the regulations require that.

  • Each room has a thermostatic radiator valve (or room stat)
  • A filter is on the system
  • The boiler has either Load or Weather Compensation
  • Proper heat loss calculations for each room
  • A suitable chemical inhibitor should be added to the system

The Right Boiler For Your Home

Modern boilers are capable of 90% or more efficiencies but the unspoken truth is that due to boiler oversizing and incompatible controls this is rarely achieved.

If you receive a boiler replacement quote that specifies the boiler and they haven’t done a heat loss calculation for the whole house don’t get it installed, it will be incorrect.

Remember the cheapest quote probably won’t be the best and to attain maximum efficiency for your home (and keep those bills lower) give Insight Energy Systems a call and we can find the right heating solution for you.

Why You Need Heat Loss Calculations For Each Room

Historically engineers have installed boilers that are way oversized for what is required for the property, opting for the just in case analogy!

Oversized boilers are more expensive to buy and fit, more expensive to run and terrible for the environment, yet they are present in the vast majority of UK homes. According to the Energy Saving Trust, the average UK home requires just 6kW of heat on a very cold day, but boilers are frequently fitted that are three times that size.

If you are planning to replace your old boiler and want to talk about the options in getting a new A Rated boiler installed that is right for your home then please get in touch today.
