Combined-cycle gas turbines installed in the UK have a measured efficiency of 47.6% GCV (DUKES 2010) and SEDBUK A boilers are 90% efficient.
If the two types of machines were compared on a rating scale such as SEDBUK, then oil free compressors would appear as a less appealing option.
If we look at what SEDBUK did for the boiler industry, we would see that it certainly regulated the market, with the energy efficiency rating scheme being woven into legislation and directives such as Part L of the Building Regulations as an incentive to drive greater take up of energy saving solutions.
The SEDBUK rating, (Season Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the UK), is a Government backed scheme to help compare the energy performance of different boilers.
By checking on the Sedbuk website she discovered her boiler had an energy efficiency rating of just 79.9 per cent.
Worcester manufactures more than 100 models of Greenstar LPG, gas and oil-fired boilers all of which are A-rated on the SEDBUK scale, producing more than 90 per cent efficiency.
If you have a SEDBUK Band G boiler, you may be entitled to a grant to help you replace it with a much more efficient model.
ON THE BOILER CHANGES to building regulations in April mean that all new gas boilers installed in homes in England and Wales [excluding Scotland] must be high efficiency condensing boilers (at least SEDBUK band A or B), which produce fewer harmful carbon dioxide emissions.
