Within Hull, there are various boiler options available for you to consider. Keep reading to learn more about these boiler types.
Biomass boilers use wooden logs, chips, or pellets, known as biomass, for fuel. This fuel, when grown and managed properly, can offer a sustainable heating method that emits far less CO2 compared to fossil fuel burners.
These boilers can provide heat and hot water for small or large homes, but bear in mind you will need a dry, sheltered space to store the fuel, and will need to have it replenished periodically.
A biomass boiler might cost up to £21,000 to install. The UK government does however offer £5,000 off of these upfront costs, to those who are eligible, through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme.
The entire City of Hull area falls under a Smoke Control Zone, which forbids the burning of certain fuels, including wood. You can first check DEFRAs exempt appliances list which permits certain biomass boilers. Otherwise, you will need a permit to install a biomass boiler.
With an electric boiler, you will get the most out of your energy compared to any other type of boiler. This is thanks to their 99-100% energy-efficiency rates. Due to the absence of internal combustion, electric boilers will not waste any energy when generating heat.
These boilers are best suited to smaller homes, with up to 10 radiators and only 1 bathroom, since they usually come with power outputs up to 24 kilowatts (kW). Larger homes, especially those with more than one bathroom, will require a boiler with a power output of at least 30kW, so a standard electric boiler will likely struggle to meet these demands.
Since fossil fuels are still widely used to generate electricity in the UK, the running costs of electric heating can be very high. In most cases, electric boilers will have running costs four to five times higher than their gas-fired counterparts.
Switching to a green energy provider can at least increase the supply of renewable energy in the National Grid. You can also consider installing solar panels to take advantage of your own free, renewable energy which allows you to become less dependent on the grid.
For homes connected to the mains gas grid, gas boilers offer one of the cheapest forms of heating to homes in the UK. Homes of any size will also find a suitable boiler that adequately meets their demands, whether it’s a combi, system or conventional boiler.
With condensing technology, a gas boiler is also able to convert at least 92% of its fuel into usable energy. In the place of an inefficient boiler with 70% efficiency, you will save 22% more on energy bills. What’s more, this improved efficiency will also go some way to reducing your home’s carbon footprint.
