Does Installing a New Boiler Help Reduce Your Carbon Footprint?

While advances in technology have made a hugely positive difference to our modern world, they have also come with severe side-effects. Over time energy use has rocketed, and when we use energy powered by fossil fuels, we release CO2 emissions into the air that are extremely harmful to our world. 

It can be hard to know where to start in making a difference, but alone and together, we can make changes. From using the car less to rethinking how we use energy at home, we all have a responsibility to try and make a difference: for the sake of our planet and for the next generation.

How can a new boiler help? 

Older models of boilers weren’t designed with energy-efficiency in mind. Now, thanks to improved technology and energy awareness, manufacturers have created boilers that are A-rated for energy efficiency. This means they recycle some of the energy they use, and are able to perform brilliantly all while using less energy and producing fewer CO2 emissions. 

If everyone in the UK switched to an A-rated condensing boiler and made better decisions about how they use their energy, The Energy Saving Trust estimates 6.7 million less tonnes of CO2 gases would be released into the environment. This figure proves the positive difference we can make if we all play our part. 

You can also save energy by taking the following simple steps: 

  • Set your thermostat to a lower temperature. 
  • Have a Smart meter installed to better track your energy use. 
  •  Use eco settings on appliances such as your dishwasher and washing machine.
