On the face of it, gas seems cheaper due to the difference in energy unit costs, but there are LOTS of hidden costs with gas heating.
- Gas boilers need servicing every year, which will set you back around £80 a pop. Let alone when you need a complete new boiler, which can cost you up to £5,000!
- Gas heating can also be very inefficient, with boilers only converting between 60% - 90% of heat to the radiators.
- On average, boilers come with a 1-5 year warranty vs our 25 year guarantee. So, if your boiler breaks after 5 years (which they often do!), you’ll be responsible for covering the high replacement costs. With Trust, you’ve got 25 years cover as standard.
- The 2025 GAS boiler Ban means no new gas boilers can be installed in new homes and then in 2035 no gas boilers can be repaired, this, alongside the rising cost of gas versus electric energy prices, will force UK homeowners to switch to electric.
