If your central heating system has seen better days and you have decided that rather than repair, it is better to simply have a new system installed, there are many fuel efficient systems on the market today.
- The Combi Boiler – Also known as a condensing boiler, this unit offers the homeowner great value for money. Such is the efficiency of a condensing boiler, that the UK government sets guidelines that recommend this for any new heating system. Ideal if you prefer natural gas, as almost all UK homes are connected to the national grid, and if you are looking at new boiler cost in Torquay, a Google search will help you find a local supplier.
- Heating Oil – This is the preferred type of heating for rural homes that are not connected to the natural gas network, and all you need is an oil storage tank, which can be filled by a local heating oil supplier.
- Hot Air Heating System – This is becoming a very popular alternative to the traditional wet central heating system, and with state of the art heat exchangers, it also doubles up as air conditioning in the summer. Installing hot water on demand negates the need for a hot water tank, and with ducting piped through the home, hot air heating is very efficient.
If your heating system needs to be replaced, it is well worth the time and effort to consider all of the above alternatives, and let’s not forget solar power, which is clean and renewable energy.
