What is a back boiler and how do back boilers work?
Back boilers, typically concealed behind a gas fire within a fireplace, were a common heating solution in homes from the 1960s until the early-2000s.
The compact size of back boilers made them a popular choice for many years. However, UK building regulations changed in 2005 to require that all new boilers be ‘condensing’ to improve energy efficiency. Since back boilers are non-condensing, their installation ceased.
Many homes still have back boilers, which are significantly less efficient than today’s condensing boilers. With efficiency levels around 50% or lower, half of the gas expenditure does not contribute to heating, leading to higher costs and environmental impact.
