Gas Central Heating Disadvantages

Most homes throughout the United Kingdom are heated by inefficient gas central heating boilers. Many homeowners are unaware that these types heating systems are highly inefficient and leave you wasting a lot of energy to simply heat one or two rooms.

One of the major gas central heating disadvantages is that each radiator within the property is reliant on one boiler. The boiler is in control of the main temperature. This means that your home will only ever achieve the temperature that the boiler is at. Furthermore, only one room will be close to the temperature that the thermostat / boiler is set at. This is because heat is lost as hot water from the boiler is passed through the gas central heating system. As the water travels through each radiator, the temperature lowers by around 5%. This means that by the time you reach the final radiator, you are left with a cold and uncomfortable room.

Impact on your health and the environment

It is without doubt that gas central heating systems are inefficient to the point where they are effecting your health and your planet. With London Greater Authority (GLA) already recognising the impact gas central heating is having on the city, incentives such as the ‘Boiler Scrappage Scheme’ are being promoted in an attempt to get homeowners to upgrade their old inefficient boilers to modern solution that reduce pollution from properties. Now is the time to start looking for heating solutions that reduce, or rather eliminate pollution, and improve the health and safety of our homes.
