Buying a new boiler is a big and expensive decision, which is why, we want to make sure that you make the best possible choice. Read on for some important facts that can help you reach a smart purchase.
The importance of a reliable new boiler
The more reliable your new boiler, the less money you will have to pay out on expensive repairs. With the average cost of a boiler repair at £210, its worth your while to spend a bit more at the beginning to buy a quality product. If you choose the most reliable brand of boiler, almost two thirds, are likely to be fault free after six and a half years. However, over half of the unreliable boiler brands, are likely to develop problems during the same time frame. Don’t be left with cold showers in a freezing home, only pick a new boiler from a reliable brand.
There are three main types of gas condensing boiler to choose from:
A combination boiler, commonly known as a combi boiler. This heats water as you need it and eliminates the need for a storage tank.
A heat only boiler, sometimes known as a conventional boiler. This means you will have a hot water tank where hot water can be stored for later use.
A system boiler. This is just like a heat only boiler, only more sophisticated. This can make system boilers easier to install than conventional ones and they tend to take up less space.
If you live in a small home with only one bathroom or one other person, a standard combi boiler is usually the best choice. If you live in a larger home, or there are more than two people living in it, then a heat only or system boiler is usually a better option. However every situation is unique and your personal lifestyle should play into your decision. Our qualified Gas Safe Registered engineer can help guide you to the perfect choice that is suitable just for you.
Getting the right size of a new boiler
Boiler sizing includes two things
•The heating and hot water capabilities of the boiler
•The physical size of your boiler and whether it will fit in to the space designed for it.
The correct heating size of your new boiler will be something unique to you and your home. Again, this depends on how many bathrooms you have and how many people you are living with. This is something our gas engineer can help you with. He will make sure you choose the right size, one that is appropriate for your needs.
