Boiler Replacement options to think about

Heating accounts for about 60 per cent of what you spend in a year on energy bills, so an efficient boiler makes a big difference.

Modern boilers are more efficient for several reasons, but their main advantage is that they are all condensing boilers. All well-maintained boilers burn their fuel very efficiently, but they inevitably lose some heat in the hot gases that escape up the flue. A condensing boiler has a larger heat exchanger, so it recovers more heat, sends cooler gases up the flue and is more efficient.

Sometimes the flue gases get so cool that the water vapour in the gas condenses out (hence the name), and even more energy is recovered from the condensing vapour.

What should I consider when replacing my boiler?

If it is time to change your boiler, you need to decide what type of boiler is right for you. Here are some things to consider:

Boiler type

Most old gas and oil boilers are regular boilers that have a separate hot water cylinder to store hot water, rather than providing it directly from the boiler. When you replace your boiler you can buy a new regular boiler, and keep your hot water cylinder, or buy a combi boiler that doesn’t need a cylinder.

A regular boiler is more efficient than a combi at producing hot water in the first place, but then some heat is lost from the hot water cylinder, so a combi may be more efficient overall.

Your hot water usage

Large families using lots of hot water are likely to be better off with a regular boiler, whereas smaller households using less may be better off with a combi boiler.

Space in your home

Combi boilers don’t need hot water cylinders, and so require less space in your home.

Compatibility with solar water heating

If you’re thinking of installing solar water heating, it’s worth noting that many combi boilers are not compatible with this heating system or cannot use it so effectively.

What else can I do to improve my central heating system?

Heat recovery devices and systems

Some of the heat generated by your boiler escapes through the flue. Passive flue gas heat recovery systems capture some of this lost energy and use it to heat your water, making your heating system more efficient and saving you money.

Hot water cylinders

New hot water cylinders are factory insulated to help keep your hot water at the right temperature for longer. They play an important role in supplying you with readily available hot water, so it’s important that they are fully insulated to prevent heat escaping.

If you have an old cylinder you could save £25-£35 a year by topping up the insulation. Alternatively if you are replacing your cylinder, you can save energy by making sure that the cylinder is no bigger than you need it.

Chemical inhibitors

Corrosion deposits in an older central heating system can cause a substantial reduction in the effectiveness of the radiators, and the system as a whole. The build-up of scale in heating circuits and on boiler components can cause a reduction in efficiency too.

Using an effective chemical inhibitor can decrease the corrosion rate and prevent the build-up of sludge and scale, thus preventing deterioration and helping to maintain efficiency.

 

Magnetic Filters

A magnetic filter is device that collects the sludge circulating in a central heating system before it can damage your boiler.

Gas Safety Week, 19th – 25th September

The sixth annual Gas Safety Week is here! It will see organisations from across the UK working together to raise awareness of the dangers of poorly maintained gas appliances, which can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.

Nearly eight million older people could be at risk from unsafe gas appliances in the UK as Gas Safe Register reveals that three quarters of Britons have never discussed gas safety with older family members. Therefore, during this year’s Gas Safety Week (19-25 September), Gas Safe Register is urging friends and family to help older people avoid gas dangers in their homes. 

Jonathan Samuel, managing director for Gas Safe Register, said:

“We’re urging the nation to reach out to those who are more vulnerable when it comes to gas safety. Together, we can help prevent deaths and injuries and reduce the number of dangerous gas appliances.”

More than 260 over-65s are injured by gas appliances every year , accounting for the majority (57%) of deaths from gas fire heaters at home. As a result, Gas Safe Register is providing three tips to help keep older friends and relatives gas safe at home:

  1. Sign up for an annual gas safety check – Only 16% of people speak to their older relatives annually about gas safety. To make it easier, sign up on their behalf for an annual gas safety check reminder at www.staygassafe.co.uk.
  2. Get savvy with CO poisoning symptoms – One in 9 (11%) over 75s has little or no knowledge of the dangers of carbon monoxide (CO) and less than half (47%) of Britons can recognise CO poisoning symptoms in their older relatives. Although CO has no smell, taste or colour, symptoms of poisoning include: headaches; dizziness; nausea; breathlessness; collapse and loss of consciousness – all of which can be mistaken for something else. 
  3. Recognise unsafe gas appliance signs – Just over half of Britons (53%) know the signs of unsafe gas appliances, which include: a lazy yellow flame instead of a crisp blue flame; soot or staining on or around the appliance; excess condensation in the room.

Mark Jones, Station Manager, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, recalls a recent call-out handled by his team: 

 

Gas Safe Register investigations find around one in six gas appliances are unsafe , with half of the gas fireplaces investigated found to be dangerous . 

Worryingly, older people are half as likely (6%) as other age groups (15%) to have a gas installation or service carried out by a professional to ensure their gas appliances are safe. Make sure they know to ‘Trust the Triangle’ by asking to see their engineer’s Gas Safe ID card and checking it to make sure the engineer is covered to check or fit the appliance in question.

If you want your gas appliances checking, please contact us to arrange an engineer to visit your property

Magnetic Filters, what do they do?

 

A magnetic filter is device that collects the sludge circulating in a central heating system before it can damage your boiler.

Why does my boiler break down?

The iron and steel components in central heating systems are vulnerable to corrosion. This produces a sludge which can block a boiler heat exchanger, boiler pump, radiators and valves.

Old, cast iron pipes were a few centimetres in diameter but those on modern boilers (installed in the last ten or so years) tend to be narrower, making a blockage more likely.

A blocked boiler will often overheat, causing the system to shut down. To remove a blockage, a boiler engineer may have to power flush your central heating system, replace the heat exchanger or fit a new pump – all are costly jobs that might be avoided with a magnetic filter.

How can a boiler blockage be avoided?

A magnetic filter is a simple device which traps the sludge that is created before it reaches the boiler. A powerful magnet collects the debris, preventing it from damaging the boiler.

Some of these devices such as BoilerMag by Eclipse also include a filter which gathers non-magnetic deposits from corrosion of copper, zinc or aluminium central heating system components.

 

How can I install a magnetic filter?

If you’re having a new boiler installed, your boiler engineer may recommend that a magnetic filter is also fitted. Some boiler manufacturers will extend the boiler warranty if a magnetic filter is installed.

It’s also possible to add a magnetic filter to an existing system. The unit can be quite bulky and is fitted close to the boiler itself. So, sometimes a magnetic filter can’t be installed – if the boiler is inside a small cupboard, for example.

How is a magnetic filter maintained?

The build-up of sludge inside the filter must be removed from time to time. Boiler engineers will usually clean the filter as part of an annual boiler service. The unit can also be cleaned my the house holder quite easily, the engineer who installs the filer will demonstrate how to clean once installed.

Doesn’t a boiler inhibitor fluid prevent a blockage?

Corrosion inhibitor fluid can be added to the central heating system to prevent the production of sludge. Maintaining the correct dose of inhibitor is an important part of caring for your boiler (and is required by some manufacturers for the warranty to be valid) but installation of a magnetic filter is a good precautionary measure to take in conjunction with this.

 

Here’s a video from Adey Magnaclean Pro2 showing how a magnetic filter works.
