Boiler Upgrades

Boiler Upgrades

Why upgrade to a modern condensing or Combi boiler- Replacing an old or faulty boiler reduces your carbon footprint, gives you a more efficient central heating system and most importantly- saves you hundreds of ponds a year.

How do high efficiency boilers save you money on your heating bills? The lifespan for a central heating boiler is normally around 10 to 15 years. The Energy Saving Trust suggests that your boiler should be changed every 15 years on efficiency grounds alone. By getting rid of your old boiler and replacing it with a new high efficiency boiler, you will save money on your heating bills. New, high efficiency boiler models are smaller and neater than older boilers and also have new technology which has improved the boilers performance. This makes a big difference on fuel efficiency and water flow rates.

MBM Plumbing and Heating follow the new legislation and regulations of the Part L Building Regulations, which has conditions that must be adhered to when installing or replacing a boiler. Part L of the Building Regulations states that new boiler installations have to adhere to efficiency guidelines, which should include a condensing boiler with a minimum of 86% SEDBUK(Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the UK) rating.

Condensing boiler models are the most efficient boilers around today. They are more efficient as they use two heat exchanges compared to older conventional boilers which only use one. The second heat exchanger in the condensing boilers captures the heat in the flue gases. The condensing boiler then re-uses the flue gas energy to increase the boilers efficiency .


“ Since 1962, when Worcester pioneered domestic oil-fired boilers, the company's commitment to excellence hasn't changed. And that commitment has only strengthened since Worcester became part of the Bosch Group - one of the world's leading names in high-end technology.

Today, many years and thousands of boilers later, Worcester is the market leader in domestic heating and hot water systems. It's a name that stands for reliability, quality, efficiency and value for money.”

Older type boilers tend to waste a lot of valuable energy, in comparison, a condensing boiler from MBM Plumbing & Heating increases efficiency and allow you to save energy, money and the planet.
