The cost of heating your home, particularly during the colder winter months, makes up about 60% of energy bills.

You can keep heating costs down by making smart heating choices – from choosing the most energy and cost-efficient heating appliances, right down to draught proofing your letterbox – to keep your home cosy.

If you know that you want a new boiler why not go straight to compare the features and prices of energy-efficient boilers.


Lower heating costs: heating products

The age and type of boiler you have affects how efficient it is. A modern condensing boiler is the most efficient boiler on the market – find out more in our guide to condensing boilers

According to the Energy Saving Trust, if everyone in the UK with gas or oil central heating installed a high-efficiency condensing boiler with full sets of heating controls, we would save enough energy to heat nearly 1.9 million homes for a whole year, and save around 6.7 million tonnes of CO2

The efficiency of a boiler is normally expressed as a percentage. Since October 2010 only boilers that are 88% or more efficient can be installed in homes, and most of the boilers you can buy now are between 88% and 89.7% efficient. 

It's worth noting that you wouldn't expect to see a difference in your gas bills if you choose one that was 98.7% efficient over an 88% efficient one. The biggest saving comes from making a leap from an old inefficient boiler to a new one
