Boiler Efficiency Ratings

Compare new boilers and assess whether your current boiler would be better off being replaced

Our boiler efficiency tables provided by SEDBUK (the seasonal efficiency of domestic boilers in the UK) provide a guide of how effective your boiler is at turning fuel into heat.

You can check your boilers rating by selecting it’s make and model below. Ratings are based on the SEDBUK Rating which is an indicator of its efficiency when used within an average domestic household, it’s a great benchmark for comparing new boilers and also assessing whether your current boiler would be better off being replaced due to low efficiencies.

The Fonderie Sime Estelle 3 is a 'C' rated boiler with an efficiency of 84.5%.

The Estelle 3 is a Non-Condensing Conventional boiler with a maximum power output of 23.5kw that uses Oil as its fuel source.

Although a 'C' rated boiler is not as efficient as many other modern boilers it's still pretty good, only a marginal reduction in fuel bills and carbon dioxide emissions would be observed by replacing it.
