Choosing the right boiler for your home is very important. You need to make sure you have enough heat and hot water, and that your boiler works as efficiently as it can possibly be.
There are many aspects you need to consider, for instance, the size of your home, how many radiators you have installed, and which types of pipes connect your system.
We have created a checklist of different aspects you should consider when purchasing a new boiler for your home.
Boilers are available with various power outputs. You’ll need to choose a boiler for your home that will have the best fit for purpose for the size of your home and also the number of people that live within your household.
If you’ve been thinking about implementing an extension or loft conversion, it’s worth considering a boiler that can cope with the extra radiators that you would need.
If you’re thinking about a combi boiler, it’s important to have the water flow and pressure checked. If they’re too low, it’ll affect the performance of the boiler in your home.
There are a few different types of boiler available, including combi, conventional and system boilers. They each have different advantages and aspects you need to consider, depending on your household needs.
It’s worth considering a heating control system with your new and installed boiler. This could include a timer, room thermostat and thermostatic radiator valves (or TRVs for short).
By implementing these systems in your household, you will have a more structured amount of control over what rooms you wish to heat, what time you want the heating to be turned on, and also what the temperature is.
This will help you save energy and money!
WARRANTY AND PARTS
Remember to check the warranty length of any new boilers you’re considering. Also, find out how easy it is to get spare parts for your boiler.
Never try to fit a boiler yourself – always get a gas care service registered engineer to install it.
