Why you should upgrade your Oil Boiler
Upgrading to a Condensing Oil Boiler can result in significant savings not just financial but in CO² emissions as well.
Even the best oil boilers require replacement approximately every 15 years. Even if you have had your boiler regularly serviced it will still undergo general wear as with any equipment with moving parts. Also within its lifetime there will have been many engineering improvements and updates which in general help make boilers run more efficiently.
Abu Heating install Grant Engineering & Firebird condensing gas oil boilers. These boilers have a great reputation and experience of boiler applications in Ireland. Grants have the highest efficiency oil boilers available in the Irish market and also have a full range of SEDBUK “A” rated condensing oil boilers.
Figures from OFTEC – say that condensing boilers could save as much as 18% in oil costs for heating and hot water. So if you currently spend €2000 a year on oil – you could save as much as €360 a year. If these figures are correct you would recover the initial cost of the boiler and fitting in about 3.5 years.
Grants are also available to help with insulation. Grants towards the cost of new boilers and insulation are available from Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI). The Better Energy scheme is available to any owner of a dwelling built before 2006.
