We’re always looking for new tricks to save money. From being a supermarket loyalty card addict, to saving 50p on your favourite iced latte - small savings can go a long way. Now, what if we told you that you could save hundreds of pounds every year?
When it comes to home heating, you can save big money just by making a few simple adjustments. In this helpful guide, we explain all the ways you can be a money saving whizz, so you can spend your hard earned cash on the things that matter to you.
Is your boiler efficient?
When it comes to saving money and boilers, efficiency is essential. All new boilers are condensing and their function is simple. They capture the heat that is produced from exhaust gases, and reuse it to heat water returning from your central heating. Therefore no gases are being wasted, meaning less heat from the burner is required - making your boiler more efficient.
Research from the Energy Saving Trust found that households could prevent 13m tonnes of CO2 from reaching the atmosphere. By simply installing new, higher efficient boilers - we’d save money, energy, and the environment. Everyone’s a winner. Which is why if you have an old boiler system, buying a new, more energy efficient one will do a world of good.
At BOXT, we have some of the most energy efficient boilers available. Take one of our best sellers, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 30i. With an efficiency rating of 94%, it’s the perfect money saving machine.

Well known companies, expensive prices.

At BOXT, we have the lowest prices on the market. All fixed, fair, and a whole £1,000 cheaper than many other boiler companies. That’s a holiday you've saved…
