If you have an older gas boiler – you could cut your bills even more by upgrading to a new efficient condensing boiler. There are grants available to help – and you could cut your gas usage and bills by as much as 23% . In the example above – with usage of 20,000kwh – a new boiler could reduce gas bills by €245 a year.
