Does Installing a New Boiler Help Reduce Your Carbon Footprint? March 01, 2020 The damage CO2 emissions are causing to our planet can no longer be ignored. As individuals, we can all do our bit to reduce our carbon footprint, and consistent changes can make a difference if we all make a commitment. One of the biggest differences we can make to our planet happens at home. This is where many of us use a lot of our energy, and where we can make the most difference. Every homeowner can prevent up to 1.92 tonnes of CO2 being released into the atmosphere each year, if they change the way they use energy in their homes. When you look at these figures, it’s clear that we can make a difference, even as individuals. Reducing your carbon footprint with a new boiler If you change your boiler to an A-rated unit, you’ll immediately make a difference to the planet by reducing your energy use. Even though it will produce the same amount of hot water and heat, it will do so using less energy. This helps both the environment and your bank balance because the less energy you use, the cheaper your heating bills will be. In addition to this, if you also consider taking the following steps you’ll save even more energy and further reduce your carbon footprint: Have a Smart meter installed to better track your energy use Turn your thermostat down a degree or two Have shorter showers Combining the above with a new energy-efficient boiler can make a huge amount of difference to the energy you use and the amount of harmful CO2 emissions that are released into the atmosphere.
