Tips for energy efficiency in the home

Installing a new boiler will help heat your home more efficiently. Modern boilers have a condensing funcionality. This means that they partially heat the cold water from your mains befor it enters the boiler burner. This is done via a heat exchanger which uses waste heat from your boiler flue. This type of boiler is more efficient so it costs less to het your radiators and water for your hot water taps.

To optimise energy efficiency savings in the home it is important to have adequate loft insulation and cavity wall insulation installed. Insul;ating your home properly means that the heat you generate from your boiler and central heating stays within your house and does not escape through your roof and walls.
