Because of its maintenance and the price of the energy used, the boiler is often a real financial pit. So when an old boiler begins to show signs of fatigue, it may be time to review its system and look for a way to save energy in the home. What options are available to you? What financial aid can you benefit from? We investigated!

What is the Energy Transition Tax Credit?

Appearing in France since 2005, the sustainable development tax credit or CIDD, now renamed the energy transition tax credit (CITE) relates to work to improve energy efficiency carried out in the main home, without no means test. This consists of a tax reduction of 30% of the expenses incurred, capped at 8,000 euros, materials and installation costs, (16,000 euros for a couple, plus an additional 400 euros per dependent) over a period of five years. To benefit from it, be sure to choose a company labeled RGE (recognized as guarantor of the environment). Thus, you will be sure to recover the part of tax to which you are entitled according to your situation.

What works are concerned?

This system supports a wide range of energy renovation works carried out at the place of residence. In particular, it takes into account the installation of economical heaters or those that run on renewable energy. Has your home been built for more than two years? Take advantage, until December 31, 2016, of a tax reduction of 30% of the expenses incurred by purchasing a wood pellet boiler or a condensing boiler (gas or oil). Note however that low temperature, gas or oil boilers are not eligible.

What type of boiler to choose?

The editorial tells you the "plus" and "minus" to choose your boiler. - Electric boilers : Recommended in a provisional framework, (for example while waiting to be connected to city gas or to an oil boiler), electric boilers are inexpensive to purchase and install. They have one of the lowest call prices on the market, so you can find first prices at just 1000 euros. Only drawback: their consumption is expensive. - Oil-fired boilers : Ideal for heating large spaces, this type of model has the specificity of being inexpensive. Its main drawback? It is necessary to have a tank (1000 L or 1500 L) which must be recharged once or twice a year. The bill is indexed to the price of oil, so it is an expensive energy. - Gas boilers : Two options are possible. If you are connected to city gas, no need for storage, your boiler will be biogas compatible. Otherwise, you will need to get a propane tank. Note that it must be recharged once or twice a year and that town gas is less expensive than fuel oil. For a model of this type costs on average 2,500 euros. - Wood boilers : There are different types of wood boilers. Their main advantage? The energy they use: wood (the cheapest energy on the market and having a good yield). If you opt for this solution, remember to plan a storage silo and stock up regularly. For a wood boiler, count between 12,000 and 15,000 euros for the boiler and 1,000 to 2,000 euros for installation.
- Low temperature boilers : Ideal for small spaces that find it difficult to recoup the additional cost of a condensing boiler, the low-temperature boiler operates at very low temperatures. This makes it possible to heat the water as needed and to reduce its energy consumption by 12 to 15%. On the price side, it costs between 3,000 and 4,500 euros, or between 1,500 and 2,000 euros less than condensing models. - Condensing boilers : Efficient, condensing boilers are today considered to be the most efficient models. Installed with a low temperature heating floor and / or soft heat radiators, they provide great comfort to the inhabitants. Bonus: they consume 15 to 20% less than standard modern boilers. Count 5000 to 6000 euros of purchase. - Suction boilers : If the vacuum boilers can be installed everywhere and even in non-ventilated places, the major drawback of this type of boiler lies in its unattractive pipe, located outside the house. Perfect for evacuating fumes and requiring no chimney, they provide optimum safety and reduce energy consumption by around 5%. Their price is similar to that of low temperature or condensing boilers without suction cup.
