Does a New Boiler Reduce Your Carbon Footprint?

If you’re considering having a brand new boiler installed in your home, you may well want to know whether or not this will reduce your home’s carbon footprint. 

Of course, the simple answer to this question is yes, and this makes for one of the most compelling arguments for installing a new boiler in the modern age. After all, this can simultaneously reduce your energy bills and slash your carbon emissions, contributing to a wealthier home and a better natural environment.

We’ll explore this further below, whilst asking why the installation of a new boiler represents the best long-term solution to reducing your carbon footprint.

How Does a New Boiler Reduce Your Home’s Carbon Footprint?

Every functional home consumes energy, and most properties rely on gas and combi boilers to deliver this. 

Ultimately, these boilers are responsible for an estimated 60% of all domestic carbon emissions, and it’s with this in mind that the installation of a new unit can be so beneficial for the environment. 

But why is this the case? In simple terms, today’s modern boilers tend to be A-rated in terms of their energy performance, which means that they boast efficiency levels in excess of 90%. 

Conversely, the average non-condensing unit has an efficiency level of just 75%, and in this case upgrading to the former can slash your carbon footprint considerably. 

This type of increase in efficiency can also translate into significant energy bill savings, which can amount to hundreds of pounds over the course of a typical year.

How Much Can a New Boiler Reduce My Carbon Footprint By?

Ultimately, the difference in efficiency between your new and existing boiler will determine precisely how much you reduce your carbon footprint by. 

So, whilst upgrading from a non-condensing boiler to an A-rated unit will cut your emissions significantly, the impact will be less pronounced when you replace a relatively new and efficient model. 

This is an important point to keep in mind, but there’s no doubt that upgrading to a brand new boiler will at least lead to a nominal reduction in your carbon footprint.
