Homeowners everywhere are looking for ways to save energy and money, especially with winter around the corner. The Farmers’ Almanac has predicted a long and cold winter ahead, which makes it even more important that your home is prepared for the cold.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) says that “heating your home uses more energy and costs more money than any other system in your home.”
So, what’s the second largest expense in your home? Heating your water.
The good news is that there is one energy-efficient appliance that heats your home and your water efficiently, helping homeowners like you experience big savings.
A combination boiler, also called a combi boiler, takes care of your water heating and space heating needs with only one compact unit. It comes with many benefits which is why it’s becoming increasingly popular with homeowners.
It’s an energy-efficient solution
A combination boiler has energy efficiency written all over it. Compared to an older system, a combi boiler uses less fuel and produces fewer CO2 emissions, lowering your carbon footprint. It typically has an AFUE rating of 90% or more, making it an extremely energy-efficient heating solution for your home and your water.
It saves you money
Because a combi boiler is highly efficient, it helps you reduce energy use, which in turn, decreases your energy bills. With the savings that pile up, it’s an investment that will pay for itself as it’s utilized year after year. You will also avoid expensive repairs and surprise emergency calls that your old system could have in store for you this winter.
It’s an easy installation
A combi boiler installation is not one of those big, messy projects that you’ll regret. The quick and simple install is a big plus and it’s easy to maintain and operate for all kinds of homeowners. When you schedule a 1:1 Heating Consultation, an energy specialist will walk you through what the process would look like for your home.
A combi boiler saves space
Although it performs two heating tasks, it does so with a single, compact unit, which makes its footprint very small. It doesn’t require tanks for holding water (because it heats water directly from the mains) so it works great for small homes where there is little to no space to fit large appliances.
You won’t wait on hot water
Over are the days of waiting on your water to warm up. With a combination boiler, water is heated instantly instead of being heated and then stored in a cylinder. Whether you’re washing dishes or taking a shower, you get unlimited hot water on-demand… something the whole family will enjoy!
It’s a year-long solution
If you’re looking for a way to be more efficient all year long, a combi boiler checks that box! During the heating season, it runs as needed to heat your home and provide hot water. When it’s not cold outside, it just works when there’s a call for hot water, making energy efficiency a part of your lifestyle all year long.
