When you are a homeowner and you have the responsibility of funding your own home improvements, certain things can sometimes become a little overwhelming – particularly if you have no clue about the different products that are on the market. When a layman is faced with the decision of which British Gas boiler to choose, the sheer quantity available can be a tad daunting.
Take on board some of this central heating advice, and make an informed choice, ensuring the boiler you choose is right for your household.
Using a storage tank to supply hot water, conventional boilers are noticeable – usually by the lagged hot water cylinder tucked away in an airing cupboard somewhere. Once the hot water has gone, there will be a delay until you can have hot water again, which can be problematic if there’s lots of members in the household all after a shower.
They can be rather space-occupying, as they need a cold water tank too – usually stored in the attic.
Although older models are less efficient, newer generations are being designed to match home heating requirements rather well.
These supply water directly from the mains, eliminating the need for any storage water tanks. They provide an unlimited supply of hot water and are a popular choice in many modern homes.
More recent models also include condensing technology as well as ECO modes, giving you control over your hot water requirements.
If you’re particularly considerate of the environment you live in, there are alternative options available that provide greener energy, such as Baxi Ecogen, which supplies hot water to a household whilst also generating low-carbon electricity.
As an added protection, take out some British Gas boiler insurance, which offers a plethora of policies ranging from £4 a month for basic breakdown insurance to cover that protects most of the pipework in your home as well as your electrics.
If your boiler has seen better days, invest in a new one this year, providing a more efficient service, conserving energy and saving pounds in the process. You could get the work done over the warmer months to reduce the inconvenience, and make sure that you have a fully efficient new boiler ready to heat your home through next winter and many more to come.
