Why You Should Get An Energy Efficient Boiler

What’s an Energy Efficient Boiler?

I’ll not go into too much detail here, but the main difference is that energy-efficient boilers recover heat which non-energy-efficient boilers lose via the flue. They then use this heat to preheat the heating system.

Effecitvely, they're using the heat they generate twice. And not throwing it away to the wind.

Financial Benefits

As the name would suggest, an energy efficient boiler uses less energy to work. As such, it’s fair to assume that you’re going to be spending less money on your energy bills. 

Just how much money you could save may blow your mind. British Gas have estimated that a semi-detached house could save as much as £200 per year by upgrading to an energy-efficient boiler! Which you could then use to take the missus away for a romantic weekend.

Mod Cons

An energy efficient boiler will be a modern beast. So, you’ll be able to install all the mod cons alongside it to make your life much easier and much cheaper. And, potentially, more fun. Yes, really.

We’ve talked previously about a Smart Thermostat, and all their benefits, but by installing an energy efficient boiler you’ll be able to get a Smart Thermostat installed at the same time. And obviously that will further increase your ability to save money and lower your energy use.

You'll also be able to get a Smart Meter installed so you’ll be aware of just how much energy you’re using. This can really help you lower your bills and give you a great understanding of when you’re using a lot of energy. Which will be a great excuse to go and turn the kids’ Xbox off!

Smart Meters also mean you won’t have to submit meter readings anymore either. These are done automatically. Which means you won’t be fiddling about every month in the cold and wet writing your readings down to send in an email.

Finally, you’ll be able to get Thermostatic Radiator Valves. These allow you to control the temperature of a radiator by changing the flow of hot water to it. Again, these are great for saving money and energy usage as you can turn the heating down in rooms you don’t really use very often. Or in the room your in-laws are using when they come to visit.

Lower Your Carbon Footprint

An energy efficient boiler will enable you and your family to really lower your carbon footprint and your impact on the environment.

As mentioned above, an energy efficient boiler will use less energy to do its job. Which means you’re using less energy to heat your home. So you’re burning less gas. And that means there’s less Co2 going into the atmosphere and less chance of those polar ice caps melting. 

Warmer Home

The final benefit is a warmer home. If you have a less energy efficient boiler, or worse, a boiler which is constantly on the blink, then be rest assured that your home will be much warmer by getting an energy efficient boiler.

They work much quicker and more efficiently to warm your home so you'll spend less time waiting in the cold for the heating to kick in.

Equally, if you get a Smart Thermostat you’ll always be in control of the heating. So you can turn it on and off at a touch of your smartphone.


So, there you have it. Loads of reasons to upgrade to an energy efficient boiler. You’ll be warmer, richer, more comfortable and have less of an impact on the environment. What’s not to like?

We are proud of our reviews

  • Nothing but excellence! We have a pleasure to work with The Better Home Company on multiple refurbishments projects and their quality of work as well as professional approach at every step of the way has been consistently fantastic.

  • Mario recently installed new cabinets since my old ones were damage due to a water leak. He was very punctual, professional and thorough. Rafael was with him the first time and he did an excellent job and I did not catch the name of his colleague on the second visit, but he was extremely nice also. I was very pleased with the service and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

  • I can fully understand why Which? recommends your company. I am delighted with the result of the works and I was extremely impressed by Yarek. He had remembered what we had discussed at the first visit and understood what I needed and why. He is excellent!!... first class work, very knowledgeable, hardworking and efficient. My flat feels greatly improved after the works. I was surprised when John arrived to join Yarek. He was also well focussed. Also I was pleased to receive helpful phone calls to tell me when Yarek would arrive because he was delayed. This meant that I wasn't worried.


  • Great experience from quote to completion of the work. All done quickly, without any trouble and to a high standard. This will be my “go to” company for future jobs around the home.


  • I was positively impressed by the Better Home Company engineers. Not only they knew what they were doing and they did it well (install a new consumer unit and rectify all sort of issues with the electrical system), when confronted with a tenant coming back home exhausted from a business trip, a landlord checking on the work, a decorator and a surveyor all in the house at the same time, Laurence Lane showed tact, great manners, diplomacy and good old common sense. Well done!


  • We’ve had some great service from this team. They are always prompt/on time, don’t try to rush out with a half done job, provide constant communication, and always dig out helpful solutions. We’ve just been caught in the London flash floods and the job the team has done, in just a matter of hours, has been superb.


  • Excellent service - we had been previously advised (by British Gas) that we needed an expensive procedure to repair the central heating system. TBHC provided an estimate (best out of 3 sought) and arrived to start work but noticed a problem, which 4 previous engineers had failed to spot or ignored. Engineers replaced a defective part and had the system running again in half the time and without the additional cost. Two friendly and knowledgeable engineers who I would wholeheartedly recommend.

    Richard Doble

  • Outstanding service by Michael the electrician and Mark the gas technician. Michael was very quick and efficient. He was exceedingly polite and very, very friendly. Such a cheery disposition! Mark took the time to explain what he was doing, which was very helpful. He too was very friendly and so lovely to talk to! Both were excellent, and I'd happily rely on them for any technical help again, and strongly recommend them to anyone who needs effective, skilled, quick, and friendly technical help.


  • One efficient cheerful and punctual guy you have in your company. He came earlier before me and i was surprised because they normally come a bit late. He was also good at explaining things on why it has to be done this and that way. He also courteously asked if i can wait for awhile for him to get a missing part. Such a professional guy. I give him 5 stars. And not to mention he never left the place he worked on dirty. He left it well tidied up. Thumbs up for Laurence
