Why Replace Your Boiler?

Buying a new boiler is something that many homeowners put off for a long time. That’s no great surprise because of the sheer amount of time, money, and hassle involved in putting in a new on. After all, you have a boiler already and while it might be a bit temperamental, it does the job most of the time and it only needs the occasional engineer visit to put it right when it goes wrong.

However, even though it may feel like you’re saving money now, you could be costing yourself a lot of money in the long run.

If you have to get a boiler engineer out every so often to fix it, it will not have been working at anywhere near its best for quite some time now. Given that a properly functioning boiler can save you up to £200 a year on your electricity bill, it could be that you’re making no savings at all by keeping the boiler you’ve got now going.

And let’s not forget the call-out charges. If your boiler’s magnetic filter breaks, it could cost £300 or more to replace it. Even replacing the timer can cost £90.

How Much Does My Old Boiler Cost to Run?

Think back over the last two years – how much have you actually spent on keeping your current boiler? If it’s more than £200, you’re throwing good money and, if you delay it for another couple of years, the total cost of maintaining and repairing your current boiler could total nearly as much as having a brand new one put in instead.

  • If one or more has been happening over the last two years more than you’d like, then it’s time to change:
  • Energy bills seem to be creeping up every three months
  • Boiler makes some really loud, funny, rattling noises
  • Radiators never get as warm as they used to get
  • Boiler is switching itself off for no reason I know of too many times
  • My thermostat doesn’t get the house or the hot water to the temperature I want it to
  • My pilot light is always going out
  • Ever since I had a new conservatory/extension put on, my boiler’s never been the same

How Much Can I Save on My Energy Bills with a New Boiler?

Your Existing Boiler Mid-floor Apartment Terraced House Bungalow, Detached Home, Detached Home, Semi-detached
G £90-£95 £160-£175 £145-£155 £285-£305 £185-£200
F £60-£65 £115-£120 £100-£105 £200-£210 £130-£140
E £50-£55 £90-£105 £80-£90 £160-£180 £105-£120
D £35-£55 £70-£105 £60-£90 £120-£180 £80-£120

On the left of the table above, you can see an energy efficiency rating. “G” is the very lowest rating any boiler can get for its energy efficiency rating. Did you know that many boilers that were state of the art ten years ago would perform badly in today’s tests? If your boiler is more than 15 years old, it almost certainly would fail a modern energy efficiency test completely.

The figures above are from the Energy Savings Trust. They show you the types of savings you can make every year on your heating bills by switching to a model A-rated boiler with thermostatic radiator controls, a modern programmer, and a room thermostat.

Let’s say that you live in a semi-detached house where your current boiler is F-rated. By switching to a new boiler, you’ll save up to £140 a year. If you replace your current combi boiler with a new one and no additional work is needed, it’ll cost you around £2,000. That means that your new boiler will pay for itself in 14 years.

What’s better? To spend £2,000 on a new boiler that will save you money or spend £2,000 over three to four years on a boiler that keeps breaking down and which doesn’t heat your home the way it used to?

What are The Main Types of Boilers?

There are three main types of boilers in the UK today, the most popular of which is the combination boiler. We’ll describe the differences between the boilers shortly but, below, you can see what it would cost, in most cases, to replace your existing boiler with a new one of the same type:

Boiler Type Supply only In its current location In a new location
Conventional boiler £750 £1,650-£1,800 £2,000-£2,200
Sealed system boiler £925 £1,300-£1,450 £1,800-£2,000
Combination boiler £955 £1,925-£2,125 £2,500-£2,700

Boiler Types

  • Combination Boilers
  • Conventional Boilers
  • System Boilers
  • Combination Boilers

    Combination boilers

    The Best Combi boilers provide heat on demand to deliver hot water to the taps and heat to the radiators. Compared with conventional and system boilers, they don’t require a separate water tank and, in terms of their overall footprint, they’re generally the smallest types of boiler on the market – great if your home is not the biggest.

    Combi boilers are the most popular types of boiler in the UK but they struggle with power showers and providing hot water to more than one tap at any given time.

    Conventional Boilers

    Conventional boilers

    Sometimes called open vent boilers, heat-only boilers, regular, or traditional boilers, conventional boilers require space for a storage cylinder (for example, an airing cupboard or large utility room) and a water tank (generally located in a loft).

    They take up far more room than combination boilers but, unlike combi boilers, they handle power showers well and they can distribute hot water at a high pressure to two or more taps at the same time.

    Where they struggle is that, once the hot water has been used up, you’ll not have any more hot water until the storage cylinder is full again.

    System Boilers

    System boilers

    System boilers are even bigger and require more space than conventional boilers however they’re really only suitable for really large premises with lots of taps that require hot water at the same time.

    As with a conventional boiler, you have to wait for the storage cylinder to heat more water up if it has been emptied through heavily family usage.

    What Size boiler Do I Need?

    There are three main groupings of boiler according to size – 24-27kW, 28-34kW, and 35kW and above. Different types of property require different sized boilers and this table below will give you a good guide to the size you need for yours.

    Bedrooms Bathrooms Radiators Property Type Boiler size recommendation Boiler type recommendation
    1 or 2 1 10 Small mid-terraced , Small bungalow, Apartment 24kW-27kW Combi
    3 or 4 1 or 2 15 Medium mid-terrace, Medium bungalow, Semi-detached house 28-34kW Combi
    4+ 2+ 20 Substantial semi-detached, Detached house 34-42kW Combi or Conventional

    The size of your boiler gives you an indication to how much hot water it can produce at any one time to provide to your radiators and your taps.

    It’s important to get this right because if you or your installer choose a boiler which is too small, it will have ongoing problems providing you with the amount of water you need. You may suffer from real water pressure issues particularly if someone is running a bath and someone else is doing the washing up at the same time.

    If you or your installer choose one which is too large, then hot water and heat will not be a problem. What will be negative for you and your family is that so much energy will be consumed keeping the boiler going that savings on your utility bills may be wiped out or you may end up paying more than you did before.

    On most occasions, your installer will recommend that you do a straight swap to the same type of boiler in the same location as it is now. This will save you money and greatly reduce the time that installation takes. However, after speaking with you about how you use water, your installer may recommend a switch to a conventional boiler (or a system boiler if your home is particularly large).

    When Should you Replace a Boiler and Why.

    Did your boiler withstand the Beast from The East? Colder temperatures can often lead to boiler problems. When it is cold the boiler naturally becomes the most important technology in the home so it is very important to know that your boiler is working well.

    Modern boilers are currently expected to last up to 15 years. More expensive boilers that are well looked after can last up to 20 years.

    A new energy-efficient boiler can significantly reduce your energy bills, as shown by the Energy Saving Trust below. The not for profit energy group Ebico suggests that heating your home is likely to account for up to two-thirds of the total expenditure on energy in the home.

    D (78-82%) £110 £170 £100 £55

    Things You Need to Consider Before Getting a Boiler Replacement:

    To replace your existing boiler you need to know that you have the means to pay for it either in a lump sum or on a monthly boiler payment plan.

    Which? magazine has rated different boiler brands, including leading boiler brands such as Worcester Bosch, Viessman, Baxi and Vaillant. They discovered that boiler prices range from £600 to £2,400. You then need to consider the boiler’s installation cost, which can range from £400 to £1,500 depending on the part of the country that you live and what you are having done.

    Do you offer a guarantee or warranty for the products and services I eventually buy through your suppliers?

    We are not responsible for the standard of work carried out by the suppliers that provide you with quotations as a result of your enquiry via our site. There is no warranty provided by us, implied or otherwise for the products or services provided by any suppliers that you contract with. Individual suppliers may offer their own warranties, but these and any standards of workmanship are not in any way associated with Leads 2 Trade Ltd. or its partners.

    Keeping your details safe…

    We take the security of your data very seriously from the outset. Our web address is HTTPS. (HyperText Transport Protocol Secure) This is the protocol used to access a secure Web server. We use https:// as the prefix to our Web address rather than the common http://, so that your session is managed by a security protocol and the transmission of data is encrypted to and from the Web server.

    Secure certificates (SSL Certificates) are in place. These are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organisation’s details. These allow secure connections from a web server to a browser. SSL is used to secure the transfer of your data to our server.

    Our server is protected by a firewall. Log in details are securely shared internally between employees.

    Any personal data held in our database is encrypted. If there are any security breaches, your data is encrypted and therefore secure.

    Each supplier to whom we pass your information in order to provide you with quotes has contracted with us to keep your data safe and use it only for the provision of a quote and, if selected by you, to provide the product or services you require.

    We always have contracts in place with the companies that we pass your details on to both to ensure that they will keep your data secure and that they comply with the rules of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which we also operate within.
    Please be assured – we will not use your details for marketing or use or pass your details to third parties other than as described in this statement without explicit consent from you.

    Finally, please note that the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

    Lawful basis for processing your data

    We rely on your explicit consent to process your personal data. This means that we ask you to consent to the following use of your data:

    Business users only

    We will email or text you about similar products and services. We will only do this if you haven’t opted out of receiving such emails or texts.

    To create custom and lookalike/ similar audiences

    We like to work with Facebook, Google and other platforms (“Platforms”) to reach out to you with adverts for Other Products. We also like to use Platforms to reach out to other people who might like to use our quote request service.

    We do this in two ways. In both cases, your data, along with other data, is used to create a custom audience and/or a lookalike/similar audience. Whenever an audience is shared with a Platform, the data is first hashed and pseudonymised, meaning that any data within the audience that could identify a person is replaced with an artificial identifier. So, the process is secure. Also, we don’t share more data than we need to for the purpose of creating the audience.

    Transfers of data outside the EEA (European Economic Area)

    We share your personal data within our business and with data processors who can find suitable product and service suppliers for you. Your data will then be used to enable suppliers to provide quotations and potentially move towards a contract with you.

    Some of the suppliers that may offer products and services to you are based outside of the EEA.

    We transfer your data as detailed above with your consent.

    Data Retention Policy

    We keep your personal data for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it is being processed. This is to reduce the risk that it will become inaccurate, out of date or irrelevant.
    We ensure that your personal data is securely disposed of when no longer needed.

    What are my rights in relation to the personal data that you hold?

    Your rights are embodied in the contract formed between us when you visit the website (as subsequently augmented when submitting your personal information and, if you are called, when speaking on the phone) and as contained in the General Data Protection Regulations 2018 – also known as GDPR.

    If you have any questions or concerns please first read this section of the statement and then email our Data Protection Officer on privacy@comparecompanies.co.uk, They will be pleased to assist before as well as after you may have provided personal information to us.

    You may also write to our Data Protection Officers either at our registered office address stated at the outset of this statement.

    If you need more information about data protection you might contact the Information Commissioner: see https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/email/

    The GDPR provides individuals with the rights in relation to personal information about themselves which is held by us as summarised in the table below.

    Some of the rights are unlikely to be of practical use. For example, if you wish for a copy or correction or cessation of use of some or all of your personal data we, our suppliers and our other introducing companies are likely already to have eradicated it from our or their system given the short periods your date is retained and its limited use.

    Nevertheless, the GDPR principle of transparency in particular provides you with the right to enquire and to be informed and we briefly set out all of the rights here. Further information about the rights and the circumstances in which they apply may be obtained from a number of published sources and from our fact sheets which are available on request.

    Information Right – you may require us to provide a more detailed explanation of how we collect, process and use your personal information.

    Personal Data Access Right – you may require us to provide an electronic copy of your data free of charge.

    Personal Data Correction Right – you may require us to correct your personal information as held by us.

    Personal Data Erasure Right – you may require us to permanently erase the personal data that we hold about you.

    Data Processing Restriction Right – you may require us to stop using your data for particular purposes such as mailing or profiling.

    Data Processing Objection Right – you may require us to suspend using your data if for example it is incorrect or you simply wish to withdraw your consent.

    Data Portability Right – you may require us electronically to transfer your personal information to another supplier, for example to facilitate switching.

    Automated Decision-Making Right – you may require us not to make decisions about you relying solely only on a computer decision.

    Breach Notification Right – if in the unlikely event there occurs a breach of security which is likely to result in a high risk to your rights as a data subject, we must inform you without undue delay.

    How else can we help?

    Rights aside, if you have a change of heart and do not wish us to pass your information to potential suppliers or another introducing company please let us know immediately by email or, should we call you, during our phone conversation and we will remove your information from our and their systems.

    You are not bound to enter into a contract with any supplier that provides a quotation to you and can unsubscribe from any communications related to your enquiry from them or us at any time.

    If you have any questions, please email privacy@comparecompanies.co.uk.
