When is the Best Time of Year to Install a New Boiler?

Sadly, boilers don’t last forever, and every homeowner will have to consider having a new one installed at some point. Whether it’s because your old boiler has had a fatal breakdown or because you’re renovating an old house and installing a new central heating system, a new boiler is a big investment but one that comes with lots of benefits.

At Pipeline Plumbing Services Ltd, we install boilers throughout the year in homes across West Sussex. However, if you are able to plan a time to have your new boiler installed, you may want to read on and consider if there’s a better season to have it fitted.

Is there a better time of year to have a new boiler installed? 

We install boilers every month of the year, because when your boiler breaks for good, you need a new one fitting as a priority. However, some people prefer to arrange their installation - if it can be planned - for the summer months. This is because when we install your boiler it isn’t possible to access heat or hot water during the fit. Often this takes less than a day, if the installation is straightforward, so it isn’t too much of a big deal. 

Sometimes, though, it can take longer, if the new boiler is a different type to the old one, for example, you have a regular boiler but are switching to a combi. When tanks and cylinders need to be removed or new elements need to be added, this can take longer. While we always work as quickly and smartly as possible to minimise disruption, if a central heating system is more complicated to install, it can take between one and three days. In cases such as this, a summer or spring installation is obviously the preferred option.
