1. A Hassle Free Boiler (from less than £10 a week)
Quite a controversial number one, we know, but hear us out.
Around 4.5 million homes in the UK are heated by boilers that are older than 10 years older or more, meaning they fall into the G-rated efficiency category, costing the owner up to £570 ever year in wasted energy. Why not get a brand new boiler fitted, with no upfront cost, and start saving up to £570 every year? Plus, our low cost monthly payment plan covers everything, from installation to annual serving to any repairs you may need. You know it makes sense.
