Your boiler accounts for up to 55% of your yearly energy bill. The most popular choice for home heating currently is the gas boiler. This is due to the fact that they are up to three times cheaper to run than an electric boiler – a huge advantage for any household. This is because electricity is three times more expensive per kWh than gas, resulting in the same output of heat and hot water having different costs depending upon the boilers Glasgow you choose. Most households have a gas supply already linked to them. This makes it easier to install a gas boiler, and all are connected to mains gas supplies which means your gas is regulated at a standard price. The only real disadvantage of using a gas boiler is that, in comparison to other boilers and electrics, they are not quite so efficient. They lose more heat energy and can lose you some money in this way. To get the most out of your energy from your gas boiler, you should invest in a condensing gas boiler. Most modern gas boilers are already condensing due to government regulations requiring all modern boilers be more energy efficient to meet energy saving targets for the coming decades. At DMS Installers, we have a number of gas condensing boilers available for purchase and installation, including Intergas boilers.

As mentioned above, electric boilers are a lot more expensive to run than gas boilers. They are, however, a better option for people who have a smaller home and who are unable to have a connection to a mains gas supply. As that is mandatory for a gas boiler, electric boilers are the only option for some people. They provide a lot of other benefits that can make up for their cost. Not only do they efficiently heat up your water, they run no risks of hurting you or your family as there are no chances for gas leaks. They also require far less maintenance than gas boilers which can prove to be less costly in the long run with their upkeep. Some people, however, do not like the disadvantage that should power cuts happen, there will be no access in your home to heat or hot water as everything is controlled by electricity.
