Here's the Best 5 Benefits of Switching Your Boiler

Switching Your Boiler

Replacing your old boiler with a brand new, energy-efficient one isn’t just refreshing; it’s beneficial too! There are many different benefits and advantages to changing over to a newer boiler, of which we’ll go through below.

1. Save Up To £500 per Year

That’s right! By switching to a new boiler, you could save up to £500 per year on your energy bills. This is because all new boilers are energy-efficient, which use less energy to your home, therefore costing you less money.

Most people make immediate savings in the first month. Pairing the offer of a new boiler, with a buy now, pay later scheme, you could save £41.66 a month before you even make a monthly payment on the boiler.

If you’re upgrading from a really old, non-energy-efficient boiler, to a newer one – your savings in energy bills could actually pay for the boiler itself every month! Getting a new boiler is a great financial decision, especially in light of rising energy prices.

2. Reduce Carbon Emissions

If you care for the environment, then you will appreciate this benefit of having a new boiler installed. If everyone in the UK had a new energy-efficient boiler installed, we could save up to 13,000,000 tonnes of CO2 each year.

Reducing carbon emissions across the country will improve our local environments, economy and make, not only Britain a better place to live, but the whole world. 

Climate change has real affects on people across the globe; reducing your carbon footprint with an energy efficient boiler is a step in the right direction to negating the effects of global warming and greenhouse gases on the planet. 

3. Heat Your Home Faster

Spend more time doing the things you love, and less time waiting for your house to get warm! A the time of writing, Winter is in full swing, and things are getting cold – there’s nothing worse than getting in from work and the house being freezing cold… then having to wait 45 minutes to get the heat going.

Newer pressurised systems, such as Combi Boilers can heat up within just 10 minutes, which means that heat is more quickly transferred across the radiators and heating system.

If you’re having issues with heating your home with your current heating system, it could mean that you need a new boiler or just a quick inspection, to make sure that everything is how it should be. You can book a service with Gas Fast over the phone or via email.

4. Get The Latest Tech

Be the new kid on the block with the latest heating technology. Most older boilers are incompatible with smart thermostats, which means that you could be really missing out.

Technology has come a long way in recent years and the introduction of smart thermostats have made life much easier. With most smart thermostats, you can start heating your home from your mobile phone or computer.

Not only can you turn on / off the heating from your smartphone, you can also control the temperature too! Comfy in bed, but getting cold? Stay put and use your thermostat app to turn up the heat! Life has never been easier. Unsure to which thermostat you need?.

5. Take Advantage of 10 Year Warranties

Manufacturers are so sure and confident, that their newer boilers are of great quality, that some now offer 10 year warranties with every purchase. Having a warranty, let alone a 10 year warranty is a fantastic benefit when switching to a new boiler.

Just like a car, you need to keep your boiler serviced annually for the warranty to be valid, but nevertheless, it’s a peace of mind – knowing that if anything goes wrong, you’re covered!

Another benefit to warranties is that it encourages you to get anything faulty fixed sooner than later. Not having your boiler regularly maintained (especially gas boilers) could cause gas leaks


Switching your boiler to a new one is better for the environment, saves you money, heats your home faster, makes life easier and gives you that peace of mind you deserve. Is there really a downside? 

Some people are put of the prospect of purchasing a new boiler, because they can cost £1,000s – but, just like most essential assets (cars, homes, computers, etc.) a boiler can be bought on a finance agreement. Gas Fast offer 0% APR and Buy Now, Pay Later – we also already offer free installation and fitting, across the UK (incl. Northern Ireland).
