Heating accounts for about 60 per cent of what you spend in a year on energy bills, so an efficient boiler makes a big difference.
In the last years, heating technology has made great improvements to increase efficiency and performances (consumption, noise, emission, ease of use).
In addition, regulations have become ever more stringent.
For these reasons, replacing boilers with many years of age (even if fully functional) can be very suitable: a new boiler allows a considerable saving in the bill, a higher comfort and a much greater easiness of use.
Condensing boilers are the most efficient boilers. The peculiarity of condensing technology is that it could provide, for the same fuel consumption, a greater amount of heat than a conventional one. This means no waste of energy thanks to this super-efficient technology.

If it is time to change your boiler, you need to decide what type of heating system is right for you. Here are some things to consider:
If you have mains gas, a gas boiler is likely to be the cheapest heating option. Historically oil heating has been more expensive.
If you don’t have a gas supply to your home, it might be worth considering a form of low carbon heating such as heat pumps. With the renewable heat incentive, these may be cheaper overall.
This technology allows even greater efficiency (the Ariston heat pumps are energy class A ++, the best existing); assuring saving of money and care for the environment (in fact lower consumption are equivalent to lower CO2 emissions).
Alternatively, one may want to get a gas connection to your home. The company that owns and operates the gas network in your area may be able to help with the cost of getting a new connection, and it may even be fully funded.
There are boilers suitable for each type of requirement, according with the space available in your home. The most common ones are wall hung boilers, simple and compact, to be installed inside the houses.
There are different boiler types, depending on your hot water usage and the space in your home:
Combi boilers: Boiler for heating and water heating
Combi boilers produce hot water directly inside itself. Water is heated instantly, so you can have it in few seconds. The smaller size, linear design and intelligent technology make Ariston’s Combi Boilers suitable for any kind of installation guaranteeing maximum comfort.
System boilers: Boiler for only heating
System boilers require a cylinder for storing hot water; This is ideal for homes with more than one bathroom
Regular boilers (sometimes known as open vent or heat only boilers) are ideally suited to homes that already have a traditional heating and hot water system which is linked to a separate hot water cylinder. These boilers also need a cold-water storage tank in the loft to feed the hot water cylinder as well as a tank that maintains the water level of the central heating system.
