Boiler replacement in Scotland

New boiler plans are becoming popular in Scotland

For many households in Scotland the cost of a new boiler is too expensive to pay upfront with one large payment. Boiler companies are now offering boiler finance plans which means that you can get a new boiler on a "Pay Monthly" basis.

New boiler ScotlandThousands of families are choosing the newest way to replace their old or inefficient boilers and therefore benefitting from lower heating costs and substantial annual savings.

Why should I replace my boiler?

Heating your hot water and radiators accounts for up to 60% of your energy bills. So it is important that your boiler is heating your home efficiently. If not you are wasting energy and spending a large amount of money unnecessarily.

Many old boilers have a low energy efficiency rating. Replacing your old boiler with a new one can save you around £300 per year (based on the average  home in Scotland). That could be £25 per month towards the cost of a new boiler. Furthermore, a new boiler will come with a warranty option of up to ten years. So any boiler cover you have will not be needed. This means more savings on energy costs.

How much will a new boiler save me?

All new central heating boilers installed in Scotland must now be condensing boilers. This type is more efficient as it preheats the cold water from your tap before it enters the boiler's burner. Condensing boilers fuction at up to 99% efficiency. This means that only 1% of heat generated is wasted.

The table below lists the energy efficiency and annual savings you can make by installing a new condensing boiler.

Cost of a new boiler in Scotland

 Boiler prices in Scotland vary depending on a number of factors -

  • property size / type
  • number of bathrooms
  • number of radiators to be heated
  • location of boiler
  • any additional wiring or pipework required

Regular boiler - a regular, or conventional boiler heats your water and stores it in a hot water cylander. The cylinder or tank then provides hot water for your taps and radiators.
