4 Tips for Installing a New Boiler

We understand that there are better things to spend your money on than a new boiler, but we also understand how important it is to choose the right boiler for your home. Being stuck with a boiler that is too big, in the wrong place or can’t meet your demands for the next 10-15 years would be a nightmare! 
So we have compiled a handy guide with tips to help you choose the right one for your home...

Where will my boiler go?

A lot of new boilers are installed in the kitchen, as the majority are small enough to hide in a cupboard. This is a great way to keep your boiler out of sight and out of mind- but it doesn’t suit every home. If you don’t have enough kitchen space, consider other spaces in your home, such as empty cupboards upstairs or downstairs. 

Which boiler manufacturer should I choose?

All boiler manufacturers have different pros and cons. These can include long warranties, great customer support, a trusted brand name and competitive prices to name a few. When it comes to choosing your boiler, you need to decide what is most important to you- is it worth paying a lower price if it means the quality may suffer?

How efficient is my new boiler?

Replacing an old boiler for a new one means you are likely to be saving yourself a considerable amount on your energy bills- as efficiency has increased considerably in the last decade. The majority of new boilers have very similar ratings (typically between 89% and 91%) so finding an efficient model shouldn’t be too difficult.

What size boiler do I need?

When choosing the right boiler for your home, you should consider the amount of space you have and the amount of hot water you require. If your boiler is too small, you risk running out of hot water at the most inconvenient time. If your boiler is too big, you risk it costing an excessive amount to run.
Our gas engineers can advise you on an ideal size using the amount of bathrooms in your house, the number of residents and your individual needs.
