what you should know before buying a new boiler

We have seen more and more people look to repair or renew their home boiler over the last few years. It’s very important to service your boiler annually – and for the unit to be up to the latest standards. If you are looking for a new boiler, we have prepared a comprehensive guide of the most important info to know:

Boilers play an important role in your household as a heating appliance to keep you warm during the winter and to provide you with hot water. Purchasing a new boiler can seem like a major undertaking, therefore it is important to know what to look for.

Of course, one of the biggest concerns is the new boiler cost, which is why it is paramount to be aware of all the options available. The cost is dependent on the quality and brand of the boiler so understanding what makes a high-quality boiler is the first step to buying the right new boiler at the right cost.

Consider the overall quality

When considering the overall quality of a new boiler in the UK, you should take into account a few key factors.

  • The boiler should be certified. Certification is done by an independent body, such as the British Standards Institute (BSI) or the Gas Safe Register. This ensures that the boiler has been safety-tested and is fit for use in the UK.
  • Check the standard warranty. The warranty will give you an indication of how long you’re able to claim any repair expenses from the manufacturer. Be aware of the requirements needed to validate your warranty.
  • Online reviews. Read online reviews from other customers to get an idea of how the boiler performs in real-world use. Consider factors such as customer service, durability, and efficiency.
  • Ask your friends and family for recommendations. If they have had a good experience with a particular brand or model of boiler, then this is a good indication that you will too.
  • Boilers specific for climates. If you live in an area with a colder climate, you’ll want to make sure you choose a boiler that can handle extreme cold.
  • Energy efficiency. One option is a boiler with a built-in heat pump, which can help to reduce your energy costs. Another option is a pellet boiler, which is a great choice for those who want to be as environmentally-friendly as possible.

When do you replace your old boiler with a new boiler?

You’ll want to consider replacing your boiler if it’s very old and outdated or if it’s broken and the repair costs outweigh a new boiler cost.

This is one of the popular reasons why many people are interested in home renovations and boiler replacements.

If you have a boiler already and you replace it, you’ll need to spend money on a new one. The good news is that newer boilers can save you money and they use new designs and features that make them more energy efficient!

What do I replace my boiler with?

Gas Boiler

Gas boilers are the most popular boiler type in the UK because of its high energy efficiency for a relative lower cost. There is a growing trend to move away from gas boilers in order to reduce your household’s carbon footprint and to become independent from relying on the volatile gas market.

Oil Boiler

The oil boiler is another very popular type of boiler in the United Kingdom. It is a highly efficient way to heat your home and can be used to power both your central heating and your hot water. There are many different types and brands of oil boilers on the market, so it is important to do your research before you buy one.

Condensing Boiler

A condensing boiler is a type of boiler that is commonly used in homes and by businesses. This type of boiler is designed to condense water vapor into liquid form, which makes it more efficient than traditional boilers.

Condensing boilers are also able to recover heat from the flue gases that would normally be lost through the chimney. This makes them more efficient than standard boilers.

When looking for a new boiler, it is important not to compromise regarding its overall quality. Also, before buying a boiler, it is important to know how often you are going to use the boiler.
