Grab a Bargain: Cheap Summer Boilers

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 31, 2012) - Although it may seem like an odd time to start thinking about boilers, it's actually the perfect opportunity to have a new heating system installed. With the warmer summer months being a quiet period for manufacturers and fitters, you're more likely to pick up a bargain by upgrading now.

If you have an inefficient boiler, often over 10-years-old, and want to reduce your heating bills, now's the time to see what deals are out there. In fact, by looking at your options could see you saving up to 20% on the installation cost.

In recent weeks the hot weather has finally arrived and many people have been out enjoying their gardens with the BBQ in the corner. But it's at this stage of the year you should be shopping around.

And Central Heating Guide say: "The best way to get a deal is to ask politely with a firm commitment ready, tell them that you'll give them the business there and then if they give you 10% off, don't get greedy or ask for half price! 10% - 20% is a reasonable request."

Why invest in a new boiler?

The main reason for homeowners to upgrade their boiler is to save money on energy bills. Inefficient boilers won't distribute heat evenly and can be working at just 70% - costing you hundreds of pounds extra every year.

By replacing your old system with an efficient A-rated boiler, you'll:

  • Cut your heating bills by up to £300 every year, which would be enough to escape fuel poverty
  • Continue reducing your bills year-in year-out as energy prices are expected to rise a further 15% by winter
  • Slash your home's carbon footprint by as much as 1,220kg a year if replacing a G-rated boiler
  • Ensure your home is kept warmer in the winter as heat is distributed evenly

What's important to remember, is that the cost of boilers will only increase as autumn and winter roll back around.

This makes now your best chance to reduce your energy bills for a cheaper price and see as much as 20% of the installation cost.

And if you're now interested in upgrading your inefficient heating system, then we recommend thinking about a combi boiler. Combi boilers have become the UK's most popular heating system because they bring a number of added benefits to every home.

Firstly, they allow homeowners to have more room in their property as there is no need for water storage tanks in the loft or airing cupboard. This is because combi boilers heat water straight from the mains supply, allowing you hot water on demand.
