Modern control devices have developed in that time, too, meaning you can be far more precise with how you heat each area of your house and have better control over gas consumption with technologies like; open therm and weather compensation.

If your boiler is 10 years old or more then you’ll use less gas than you currently do by installing a new one especially with modern smart controls.

Most boilers like Worcester Bosch should last between 7 and 15 years. If yours is approaching that age, then think about saving for a new one or talk to us about our help to buy scheme, which helps you spread the cost for as long as 10 years. Prices start at only £10 per month.
