The latest solution to deal with current dramatically rising gas bills is now available from Zenex with their GasSaver, an energy saving device, which reduces the gas consumption required for domestic hot water by up to 40%!
The Zenex GasSaver is a boiler flue attachment that recovers heat from the waste combustion gases normally lost, and uses it to pre-heat the domestic hot water supply.
It is installed on top of a standard gas boiler as part of the flue-way and recycles heat from the waste gas.
This year Baxi launched their latest range of combi and system boilers, which all come with the THINK combustion management system, the cutting edge in boiler technology.
The great new range includes:
The brand new Baxi Neta-tec Combi – compact dimensions make this the perfect choice for homes where space may be limited
Currently receiving lots of news coverage – Micro-generation is important with regard to carbon reduction.
As the manufacturer of Baxi Ecogen, the maker of the only Dual Energy Boiler available, the company understands that it’s essential to know how to claim the Feed-in Tariff (FiT), to enable you to benefit from the payback as soon as your appliance is installed.
The Feed-in Tariff or FiT is a fixed payment for the electricity you generate in your home, whether you use it yourself or export it into the national electricity grid.
For Baxi Ecogen Dual Energy System the Generation tariff is 10p per kWh.
Export tariff – an additional payment for each kWh you export back to the national grid. For Baxi Ecogen this is 3p per kWh and is index linked.
With energy prices soaring and temperatures plummeting this winter, now is the perfect time to wise up on the most cost effective changes you could be making within the home.

Everest, one of the UK’s leading home improvement companies, has launched a new business arm, Everest Energy.
The business will initially operate in the Meridian television region across the South of England prior to a national roll-out, and will focus exclusively on selling and installing boilers and central heating systems, solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, which generate cheap green electricity from sunlight, and a selection of other energy efficiency products for the home.
Simon Jarman, Everest’s Managing Director, said: “Everest has been improving homes for many years with its energy efficient windows and we feel that the time is now right to move into energy generation.
According to a recent Mintel study, going green and being more eco friendly is becoming a priority in many UK households.
The latest report revealed that almost six in ten adults in the UK aged 25+, claim to be more aware of their effect on the environment, and feel that they have a duty to protect it (2010).
There is no escaping the fact that the way we live our lives is having a big impact on the environment and slowly but surely, people are starting to do what they can, in a bid to combat high energy bills and global warming.
A few simple changes can go a long way and like charity, going green begins at home.
Baxi Ecogen is the first, commercially available micro-CHP (Combined Heat and Power) unit for the home.
“Baxi Ecogen heralds the most important step-change for the home heating industry since the condensing boiler” says Mark Kelly, Baxi Group’s CEO. “This is the first, wall-hung micro-CHP unit.
In addition to being available for private homes, it can be specified by local authorities, housing associations and private developers. It will help them meet Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes; tackle fuel poverty issues more effectively and significantly cut carbon emissions. Baxi Ecogen is a unique, world-class technology for the 21st century home”.
Consumers may be missing out on thousands of pounds of government-funded initiatives available across the UK, according to Home Heating Guide, the leading online resource for domestic heating and energy issues.
Home Heating Guide have established that many homeowners may find they are eligible for home energy efficiency grants that cover the installation of new high efficiency condensing boilers, central heating systems and home insulation, in a Government drive to reduce domestic household carbon emissions.
The initiatives available across, England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland are operated regionally, with varying criteria and grant amounts, which is explained in greater detail online at Home Heating Guide.
Staggering increases in gas and electricity prices have resulted in a plethora of energy saving tips from the Government and the energy companies; but the fact remains, if we want to pay less for our gas, we’ve got to use less.
Gas-elec’s g-save is a new energy saving device, launched in October 2008 – in trial conditions and has so far come up with impressive savings – from 22% in a 2 bedroom terraced cottage to 34% in a 4 bedroom detached house (calculated on actual meter readings with, and without, the g-save).
In February 2009, Good Housekeeping magazine awarded the g-save their Innovation of the Month, when it achieved savings of 31% in trials.
E.ON, one of the UK’s largest power and gas companies, has reaffirmed its commitment to helping households reduce their gas bills, by offering £700 off a new boiler for a limited time only.*
For people over the age of 60, this amount could increase to £1,000.
The Energy Saving Trust has advised that replacing an older boiler with a new energy efficient condensing boiler, could save households around a third on their heating bills, which with full heating controls, could save UK households as much as £270 a year.
