The advantages of gas central heating

If you’re looking for a cost-effective and efficient way to heat your home, then gas is the savvy choice. It’s a highly efficient fuel, which means that very little is wasted and you can expect a good return on every unit of energy you use. And because gas is piped directly into your home it’s much more convenient than fuels that need a storage tank like LPG and oil.

Efficient and cost-effective
Gas central heating is the cost-effective choice when compared to either electricity or oil. Fit a modern condensing boiler and you’ll see your bills tumble even further, as these highly efficient boilers use the flue gases that go to waste in a conventional boiler to do the job of heating your home and water. With 90% and higher efficiency, you’ll get an excellent return on your energy investment.

Add thermostatic radiator control valves (TRVs) to your radiators and you can save even more by creating separate heating zones around the house. That means you can keep the living room cosy while you use a minimum level of heat in rooms you’re not using. And with an app-controlled thermostat you’ll have complete control of your heating system at your fingertips, wherever you are, so you can always come home to a warm environment.

What’s the best boiler for me?
If space is tight and you’d like to get rid of your hot water tank, then it’s well worth considering a combi boiler that provides hot water on demand. They’re also quick and easy to install and have fewer moving parts so they’re easier to maintain. However, the water flow can be slower than normal especially when you have more than one tap running at a time, but they’re a smart and energy-saving solution for the smaller home.

A conventional boiler will be right for you if you have more than one bathroom in a larger home. We can even fit an electric immersion heater when we fit your tank so that you’ll always enjoy hot water, even if there’s a problem with your boiler. Whichever you choose, opt for a condensing boiler to enjoy all the energy saving benefits of gas central heating.
