Things to Consider Before Installing a New Boiler

Need a new boiler? Buying a new boiler comes with many possibilities and often leaves you with many questions, but who do you ask them to? It’s a huge investment, so you need to be sure you’re buying the one that’s right for you. A boiler can last for up to fifteen years, so it’s a long time to deal with something that doesn’t meet your needs.
Here we’ve outlined a couple of things to consider before installing a new boiler.

What Size Boiler Do You Need?

The right size boiler tends to depend on which type of boiler you choose (combi, conventional, system etc.), but also depends on your demand for hot water. If your boiler is too big, you risk spending an unnecessary amount of money on heating your home. If your boiler is too small, you risk it not being powerful to meet your demand for water. 

This may seem like an impossible decision but don’t worry, our gas engineers are happy to help you out with this. 

Where Should Your Boiler Be?

Many boilers are positioned in a kitchen cupboard, where they can be kept out of sight and out of mind. This isn’t always the best option, so you need to consider other places it could be; for example, an airing cupboard or laundry room. As well as this, you need to consider how much space you actually have. Some types of boilers (such as conventional boilers) require a lot of loft space for water tanks, whereas others (combi) only require the boiler itself. 

Space plays a big part in deciding the right type of boiler for your home.

Which Boiler Manufacturer Should You Choose?

All boiler manufacturers specialise in different areas. Some offer long warranties, some are more energy efficient than others and others offer great customer service. When it comes to a new boiler you need to consider what is most important to you, as you can’t have everything. In choosing a cheaper manufacturer, you may have to sacrifice the excellent quality offered by some higher end manufacturers – It’s up to you to decide what matters most.
