What is a high-efficiency condensing boiler

For the best efficient space heating and hot water heating boiler for domestic property, a high-efficiency condensing boiler is the most recommended. A high-efficiency condensing boiler works on a principle of recovering as much of the heat normally wasted from the flue of a conventional (non-condensing) boiler as possible.

A modern high-efficiency condensing boiler has a much larger heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is designed to extract over 90% of the wasted heat from the fuel it burns which would normally be lost to the atmosphere through the flue, and recycles it back into the heating system. By fitting a condensing boiler and improving your heating See the source imagecontrols, you could cut your carbon footprint by nearly two tonnes and save as much as £275 a year on utilities bills.

A combination boiler can be more efficient as it also supplies hot water to your home, this option is most suitable for smaller homes. Ask your installer about what’s best for your home.

High-efficiency condensing boilers are the most energy efficient and can save you up to a quarter on your heating bills once you replace your old boiler and heating controls.

Home is where your heart is

A proverb said so long ago is immensely significant today as well. The origin to the proverb “Home is where the heart is” is given by Roman naval commander and naturalist, Pliny the Elder. He was formerly known as Gaius Plinius Secundus.

 

Undoubtedly the concept lies in returning to the place where you belonged, have spent the most cherished time of your life and willing to invest good part of your resources to develop and maintain.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once quoted, “A house is made with walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams.” And to build a house with love and dreams it will take skill and money.

To make your house a home you should consider home improvement that is design and decorated to your taste, personality and comfort.

Elements to consider and made available at least to a standard approved level are;

  • Flooring and tiling 
  • Furniture and fittings
  • Heating and plumbing
  • Electronic and electric gadgets
  • Security

Home Improvement: Exploiting opportunities for energy efficiency

To identify opportunities that are likely to arise for energy efficiency upgrades, start by making a list of future home improvements you plan to carry out over a number of years. then try to match these to major energy efficiency projects, such as insulation, solar installation, window and boiler replacement. Below are some planned projects and recommended opportunities for energy efficiency improvements.

Super-insulated home: Heating by cat power?

Not a lot of people know this, but the average domestic cat gives off nearly 20W of heat. Why is this relevant? Because if your home was super-insulated so that it only lost 1kwh of heat a day, then the body heat of a couple of domestic cats could be sufficient to keep the living space warm – at least until the temperature outside was 16° colder than inside.

See the source image

The total heat lost of a building depends on two main factors – its average heat lost (ie how insulated it is) and the temperature difference between inside and outside. Together these two factors tell you how much heat you need to generate to keep the interior cosy. So in this example your living space set to be a comfortable 20°C, only once the outdoor temperatures fell below 4° would you need to invite additional household pets into the home to boost the heating.

If the building is well insulated enough, the internal gains will be more than the total losses through the building. In other words the number of watts of heat required would be less than the heat given off by occupants and from everyday activities, such as waste heat from appliances, cooking, hot water use, plus any solar gains received through windows.

Home energy saver: Consider your curtains

Heavy curtains with good lining will help to retain the heat in a room and thereby save you energy and money on heating bills.

Remember to draw your curtains at dusk to reduce the heat escaping through your windows and ensure they are not blocking any radiators.

UK Election 2019: Is Climate Change a deal breaker for you?

Sian Berry  Co-leader of the Green Party on the launch of their general election campaign said: “Some things are even bigger than Brexit. This must be the climate election. The future won’t get another chance.”

The party says it would fund their climate change pledge of £100bn a year by borrowing £91.2bn a year, with an extra £9bn from “tax changes”.

The party also set out plans to make Britain carbon neutral by 2030.

Conservative party  has already committed to cut carbon emissions to net zero by 2050, a move announced by former Prime Minister Theresa May before she left office earlier this year.

Boris Johnson led Conservatives on his election campaign said they have “a proper plan to continue reducing carbon emissions” which will build on the “400,000 low carbon jobs we’ve already created (while in government)”.

Labour has also set out some of its own environmental pledges, including a promise to cut UK carbon emissions by 10% through a home improvement programme.

A Labour government would fund £60bn of energy-saving upgrades, such as loft insulation, enhanced double glazing and new heating systems, by 2030.

The question now is which party and who do you trust to deliver on climate change and will it be a deal breaker for you?

Labour to fund energy-saving upgrades with £60bn

Jeremy Corbyn the leader of the opposition party in UK Labour pledge to cut UK carbon emissions by 10% through the largest home improvement programme for decades.

He said a Labour government would fund £60bn of energy-saving upgrades, such as loft insulation, enhanced double glazing and new heating systems, by 2030.

 

Launching the policy on Sunday, Jeremy Corbyn said it “will create a sustainable energy network”, adding: “We cannot go on polluting our planet.”

The Conservatives said the plan would “wreck the economy” and “put up bills”.

Speaking about the policy – called “Warm Homes for All” – in south-west London, Mr Corbyn said that climate change would be a major part of the party’s election campaign.

“We cannot go on standing by while climate warming increases,” the Labour leader said.

Labour says low-income households will receive a grant to carry out the work on their homes, while wealthier households would receive interest-free loans for enhancements.

 

Households which take out the loan would pay it back through savings on energy bills, the party added.

Labour expects the project to cost £250bn – an average of £9,300 per home – but only £60bn would come as a cost to central government, it says.
