A gas boilers should be upgraded or changed every 12 to 15 years because they have moving parts that wear out over time, making the boiler less efficient… which costs you more money in higher heating bills.
With boiler efficiency advances in technology and new Government regulations to limit CO2, modern systems can achieve efficiency ratings of 92%.
Offset boiler upgrades or new unit with an SEAI grant, and to qualify applicants must upgrade their heating controls also.
Building Regulations before 2008 did not have to specify how efficient boilers had to be. Therefore, Ireland became a dumping ground for inefficient boilers.
