IF your gas boiler is around ten years old it is worth con­sid­er­ing re­plac­ing it with a mod­ern con­dens­ing boiler, say Heat­ing Helpline.

The cur­rent gen­er­a­tion of ul­tra-ef­fi­cient, con­dens­ing boil­ers con­vert over 90 per cent of the fuel they use and are up to 40 per cent more ef­fi­cient than the older boil­ers they re­place.

It’s not just money at stake but well­be­ing. Around 50 peo­ple in the UK die ev­ery year from carbon monox­ide poi­son­ing, with hun­dreds more made se­ri­ously ill and the big­gest cul­prit is older boil­ers, es­pe­cially those that have not been reg­u­larly ser­viced.
