Similarly, what are the benefits of a condensing boiler? There are two main benefits to gain from using a condensing boiler: lower energy bills, and a reduced carbon footprint. As condensing boilers are so much more efficient than their conventional counterparts when turning fuel into usable heat, less fuel is required overall to heat both your water and your home.
is a condensing boiler better than a combi?
Condensing boilers are probably the most energy-efficient boilers currently available on the market. The reason they're so efficient is because they condense water vapour in the exhaust gases. They weigh a lot more than a standard (and much more than a combi) boiler.
How long do condensing boilers last?
Boilers should last up to 15 years. If yours is approaching that age, then think about saving for a new one. If you want to keep your boiler in tip-top condition for longer, annual services are the way to go. They help to keep your boilers efficient and lower the risk of malfunctions.
