Boiler Breakdown Cover Firm Responds to News That 17.6m UK Households Could Benefit from Boiler Replacements

247 Home Rescue, a boiler breakdown, home emergency and appliance cover specialist, has responded to government data that has shown millions of Brits could receive cheaper energy bills through some simple home improvements.

Lancashire, United Kingdom, May 02, 2014 --( Government data has revealed 17.6 million households in the UK could still benefit from a boiler upgrade or replacement, despite the fact that initiatives such as the Energy Company Obligation, Boiler Replacement Scheme and Green Deal have been in operation for years.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change's UK National Energy Efficiency Action Plan also found that 1.6 million households could benefit from heating controls, 5 million could benefit from hot water cylinder thermostats and 7.6 million could save money with passive flue gas heat recovery systems.

Furthermore, 22.8 million households could still benefit from gas smart meters - slightly fewer than the 24.9 million that could benefit from electricity smart meters.

Commenting on these figures, Kevin Burke, energy efficiency specialist for boiler breakdown cover providers 247 Home Rescue, said:

"These home improvements may look simple, but they have the potential to save homeowners a fortune.

"Improving domestic energy efficiency is a great way to respond to the cost-of-living crisis, pushing down fuel bills at a time when everything seems to becoming more expensive.

"Improved household sustainability will also reduce the impact of climate change, so will not just benefit people alive nowadays, but their children and their children's children."

Under Building Regulations 2010, all new domestic gas condenser boilers in England and Wales must have a minimum energy efficiency rating of A. As 1.5 million boilers are replaced every year, these regulations have markedly improved the efficiency of household central heating systems. It is predicted that the majority of domestic boilers will have been replaced with highly-efficient condenser boilers in the 2020s.
