A boiler can make a huge amount of difference to the amount you are spending on your energy. Could changing your boiler save you a lot of cash? Modern condensing boilers are more efficient, so Britons with an old fashioned boiler may well want to update. But even then there are choices to be made about the best boiler.

What is the best boiler to save money?

If you have mains gas…

Then you should choose a gas boiler to save the most money.

The Energy Saving Trust says: “Our average fuel prices as of April 2018 show gas to be the cheapest heating fuel per kWh, compared to oil, economy 7, LPG and house coal.”

If you are electric…

The Energy Saving Trust recommends renewable heating such as a heat pump or biomass.

It says: “With the renewable heat incentive these may be cheaper overall.”

You can also save hundreds a year by making sure you have an efficient boiler.

Ensure your boiler is clean and kept in certain conditions will save money.

Those who hope to reduce their heating bill should make sure they bleed their radiators, as excess air overworks the boiler.

RJ Gas Appliances Limited – a repairs and installations company – informs customers on its website that Brits should never cover their boiler.

It is vital to keep air vents open, as well as ventilation grills.

The Energy Saving Trust claims that changing your boiler from a G efficiency rating to an A rating can save you £340 a year on your gas bill.

The Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that is it best to use a timer to turn heating on and off to save money.
