Is My Boiler Efficient?

If you have ever asked yourself is my boiler efficient, then you are going to be very surprised to find out that there is a lot of data about how energy efficient your boiler actually is. This is because there are a large number of different types of boilers and what is considered ‘efficient’ for one type may not necessarily be for another.

If this is the first time that you have heard about SEDBUK (Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the UK) and boiler ratings, then you may well wish to understand how energy efficient your boiler really is. This can usually be checked from the manual that came with the boiler and in the event that you have ever checked this out, you will find a corresponding letter rating that gives you the data on the efficiency of your boiler.

This is actually the number of BTU’s that your boiler uses per hour, so if your boiler has higher BTU’s then it is probably highly efficient. On the other hand, if you find that the rating is lower than that of the regular boiler then this means that you are consuming more energy to heat water and if this is true then you should consider buying a new boiler.

If your boiler does not seem to give you accurate information as to how much it is efficient, then you could try calling the company who sold you the boiler and ask them to show you the SEDBUK letter rating on the boiler and then show you how much power it uses to heat water. This will give you an idea of whether your boiler is efficient or not and could even lead you to a new boiler.
