3 Tips for Purchasing a New Boiler

OK, so you’ve decided to invest in a brand-new boiler! This is sure to feel like a huge weight off your chest, particularly if upgrading your heating system is part of a larger refurbishment project. 

Make no mistake; choosing to buy and install a new boiler is one of several decisions that you’ll need to make in this respect, as you’ll also need to select a model, identify a viable heating system and engage the services of a reputable engineer.

Our Top Tips When It Comes To Purchasing A New Boiler 

1. Don’t discard big boiler brands 

Let’s face facts; the boiler market is packed full of viable brands and manufacturers, each of which produces a wide range of units and variable systems. 

Given the cost of buying and installing a new boiler, however, it’s not uncommon for homeowners to eschew the leading brands and instead opt for cheaper suppliers and more affordable units. 

This may well be a false economy, however, and there are a couple of reasons for this. Firstly, the leading brands often produce the best and most efficient units, whilst they also work with accredited installers to offer extended warranties and deliver incredible value for money. 

2. Choose the right type of boiler

When it comes to selecting the right type of boiler, there are a couple of factors that should inform your decision. 

The first of these is the size of your home, as larger properties that boast a high demand for hot water often benefit from the installation of a conventional heating system that relies on a separate water tank. 

Efficiency is also a key consideration, with modern, A-rated combi-boilers generally considered to be the most effective in this respect. These typically feature modern condensing technology, which means that less than 10% of all energy produced is wasted on average. 

3. Choose a place for your boiler

The flexibility of modern boiler systems allows you to choose the location for your new boiler. With this in mind, you can place it wherever it is convenient for you and you do not have to place it in the kitchen cupboard or utility room. 

 One requirement for installing gas and oil boilers is that they be mounted on an outside wall. This is done to make it simpler for waste gases to be readily released outside of the building and away from the flue pipe. Keep in mind that relocating a boiler from one site to another will increase the expense of replacing the boiler.

4. Set your budget

For many individuals, the choice is often constrained by finances. Therefore, it's critical to have a clear understanding of your budget and, more significantly, to ensure that you adhere to it. The following factors will affect how much new boiler costs: 

  • Model, range, and manufacturer 
  • Type of boiler 
  • Output rating 

You'll need to consider the installation costs in addition to the price of the boiler. The cost of installing a boiler might also vary substantially. You can get rough estimates on how much a new boiler will cost you and how much you will need to set aside for the boiler installation by speaking with different heating companies.
